Saquon Barkley scored on a 25-yard run on Penn State's first offensive play of overtime and the Nittany Lions beat Minnesota 29-26 on Saturday night.

In the closing minutes of the third quarter of Penn State’s 29-23 overtime win over Minnesota, Golden Gophers special teamer Jalen Waters brought the Beaver Stadium crowd of 95,332 to its feet in u

Brandon Smith might have been the only Penn State player to score any type of victory in Saturday’s 49-10 beatdown from the hands of Michigan in the Big House.

Smith, who was the breakout star in last week’s victory over Temple, found himself heading back to the locker room early in the second quarter after being ejected for targeting.

Trace McSorley completed 18 of 24 passes for 287 yards with one touchdown and an interception and rushed for another score to lead Penn State to a 34-27 win against Temple on Saturday.

In a fireworks-filled game that finished much closer than it needed to, Penn State avenged last year’s heartbreaking season-opener with a 34-24 win over visiting Temple.

In the words of amped-up former Pitt coach Walt Harris: “It’s a rivalry again!”

Despite some confusion of what exactly we are supposed to call this Pitt-Penn State matchup, Saturday’s game could be unanimously tabbed an edge-of-seat thriller, as the Panthers notched a 42-39 le

Trace McSorely threw two touchdown passes, Saquan Barkley topped the century mark and the Penn State defense tightened in the second half as the Nittany Lions beat Kent State 33-13 on Saturday.

It wasn’t the flashiest of wins, but James Franklin is okay with that.

With new coordinators on both sides of the ball, Penn State will have a decidedly different look when they take the field this weekend to open the 2016 season.

The new-look Lions may find themselves finishing with a similar record from 2015, but the latest edition of James Franklin’s Penn State squad is sure to get there differently.

For years, the accomplishments of the Penn State men’s basketball team have been few and far between. Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.

The Nittany Lions have not managed one winning conference record during his five-year stint with the program, topping out at 7-11 last season.

Three WPIAL players were drafted into the NFL this past weekend. Former Pitt wide receiver and Clairton standout Tyler Boyd was the first local player off the board when the Cincinnati Bengals made him their second round pick on Friday night.

Scouts love Boyd’s competitiveness, route-running ability and hands, which make up for his lack of elite speed.

As difficult as it can be to discern real progress from a spring football game, Penn State’s 37-0 Blue victory over White in the Nittany Lions scrimmage earlier this month provided some clues.

Penn State capped their spring in front of 65.000 fans at Beaver Stadium. Here's what we learned from the scrimmage.

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

When the Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their general manager in 2014, it seemed like a temporary move. The former Carolina Hurricanes GM would spend his two years in Pittsburgh, and then hand the keys to Jason Botterill; the man whom several people thought deserved the job in the first place.

Aaron Gray is a familiar name for most Pittsburgh basketball fans. The 7’0”, 270-pound center led the '07 Panthers to an NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearance and was one of the most prolific big men to play for coach Jamie Dixon.

Exactly four months after the Pittsburgh Penguins raised the Stanley Cup in San Jose, the new NHL season got underway. While the Penguins will look to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as champions, the season will be sure to deliver plenty of twists and surprises during the regular season.

As much as 80 percent of the Pirates starting rotation could be different next season. Only Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon are locks to return from the 2015 crew. With three spots potentially open, the Pirates could look to add veterans through waivers, free agency and trades. Here are some potential in-house solutions.
