The Penn State Nittany Lions beat up on in-state rival Pitt by a score of 33-14 on Saturday.

Of course, previous year it was Pat Narduzzi's Panthers who knocked off Penn State, a 42-39 win that ultimately helped keep the Nittany Lions out of the College Football Playoff.

"I know past year for their win (against us), it was like the Super Bowl", Franklin said following Saturday's win.

Penn State opened its season with a dominant 52-0 win over Akron last week. Max Browne threw for the 140 yards and had a touchdown on 17-of-24 passing in the win. I think just overall, our defense, that's the kind of team we want to be. "Guys had, like, grudges, a chip on their shoulder, coming into this game".

Nobody on Penn State's current roster was even born when the school's annual, always-anticipated showdown with Pitt stopped after the Lions pasted the Panthers, 57-13, in 1992.

After losing to the Panthers last season, in the first matchup since 2000, the Nittany Lions, ranked the No. 4 team in the nation, expected to steamroll a lowly Panther squad that will be lucky to finish the season with a winning record. This win was no more significant for us than last week's was.

Penn State did nothing itself to merit a fall in this week's college polls, but wins by Oklahoma and USC forced a move anyway.

In his opening statement to the media after the win, Franklin delivered a serious truckload of shade directed at the Pitt's program.

"The game has changed", Franklin said. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. Penn State recognized its 1982 National Championship team at halftime and unveiled 2016 numbering along the suites of the stadium to honor its Big Ten championship from last season.

"I think emotions were high", McSorley said. Mike Gesicki had 58 yards and two touchdowns while Barkley contributed 54 yards in three catches. The Penn State defense smothered Akron with 14 tackles for loss and held them to 159 yards of total offense. "I've had tons of injuries throughout my career, and it's just that mental aspect of always putting in so much work and not feeling like you're getting the fruits of your labor". The Panthers crept within 1 but could get no closer. Junior running back Saquon Barkley, a potential Heisman Trophy contender, rushed 14 times for 88 yards and a touchdown and also had a 46-yard touchdown reception.
