The 2015 Pitt Panthers were an improved football team, but hardly a great one. Much of the praise heaped upon Pat Narduzzi and his staff for Pitt’s 8-4 regular season comes in light of extremely low expectations given the program's recent past.

On the other end of the state, the Temple Owls have earned a No. 20 AP ranking and an East Division title in the American Athletic Conference with a 10-2 record.

Christian Hackenberg threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns as Penn State kept Maryland winless in the Big Ten with a 31-30 win in Baltimore on Saturday, in the Terps first game after firing head coach Randy Edsall.

Penn State (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) improved to 36-2-1 against the Terps, but Maryland's determined effort before a spirted crowd of 68,948 could help turn this into a regional rivalry.

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.

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.
