Mascot war: Brutus Buckeye throws massive shade at Penn State over James Franklin's stadium blunder
Ohio State and Penn State have a massive showdown as the 2 Top 20 ranked teams meet in primetime this weekend.
This season, Penn State head coach James Franklin has tried to do his best to keep his team and the media about the team in front of the Nittany Lions.
Franklin has been in the rumor mill about potential job openings at big time programs across the country, most notably USC. The coaching carousel has started turning earlier than it ever has in college football.
Franklin slipped up a couple of times his press conference on Tuesday. He said he was focused on “Illinois” when Penn State has Ohio State this weekend.
Franklin also referred to “The Horseshoe” as the “Big House,” the nickname for Michigan’s stadium.
Ohio State mascot Brutus the Buckeye had a pretty awesome troll job on Twitter about the Penn State coach’s gaffe when mixing up the 2 stadiums.
