UNIVERSITY PARK— Penn State did what it was supposed to do Saturday and pounded UMass, 63-0.

The win moved Penn State to 6-0 on the season and ensured that coach James Franklin’s team would be Bowl eligible.

But Penn State has much bigger goals than just making a bowl. The team has national title aspirations, and could go a long way toward reaching that goal by beating No. 3 Ohio State on the road Saturday.

Here are some sites from PSU’s demolition of UMass.
