Matt McGloin threw four touchdown passes and Penn State's defense forced three turnovers as the Nittany Lions picked up the first win of the Bill O'Brien era, sinking Navy 34-7.

U.S. Navy jets got things started with a thunderous flyover at the conclusion of the National Anthem.


Beaver Stadium didn't quiet down all afternoon.

When Silas Redd transferred from Penn State to Southern California over the summer, many wondered what effect the move would have on the Nittany Lions' running game.

But two weeks into the season, Penn State can't seem to even get the running backs it has into games.

Stephon Morris had his mind pretty close to made up. "I'm very passionate about football. I love this game," Morris said. "But last year I didn't, after the season, I really didn't have...I don't know. It just wasn't there. I wasn't going to be here."

The rising senior cornerback grew frustrated with his role at Penn State.

Penn State missed four field goals and an extra point, and despite causing four turnovers, lost to Virginia 17-16 on Saturday in Charlottesville.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--It wasn't all on the kicker.

When Penn State travels to face Virginia on Saturday, a former walk-on quarterback will lineup behind center and likely hand off to a former walk-on running back. And if Penn State's season opener against Ohio was any indication, a former walk-on tight end could be getting some looks in the passing game, too.

With that in mind, coach Bill O'Brien thinks it's probably time to change their moniker.

Ohio scored 21 unanswered points in the second-half, including a game-clinching touchdown on a seven-minute, 14-play, 93-yard drive with 2:55 remaining to upset Penn State 24-14 at Beaver Stadium on Saturday.

Putting an end to the most tumultuous offseason in program history, Penn State coach Bill O'Brien finally led the Lions back onto the football field.

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.

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.

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.
