When James Franklin took the podium for the first time as Penn State’s head coach, he spoke sharply and confidently. Franklin, who inherits a Nittany Lions roster with just eight players from Western Pennsylvania, was already recruiting.

The Penn State Nittany Lions overcame an eight-point second half deficit to end their six game losing-streak and earn their first conference win of the season, defeating the Nebraska Cornhuskers 58-54 in a hard-fought contest at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park.

It is a new era for Penn State football: another new coach, and a fan base desperately trying to move on. The NCAA sanctions are, at worst, half over. It appears that Bill O’Brien accomplished more than winning 15 games in two years; otherwise James Franklin wouldn’t be the new coach.
