James Franklin coached his Penn State Nittany Lions to a comfortable 46-10 win at home over Ohio where older and younger players on both sides of the ball saw action. This win comes after a thrilling last-minute 35-31 win on the road versus Purdue.

During his postgame press conference, Franklin discussed playing these young players and the dedication to the program they have:

“Their roles will continue to grow and gain confidence as the season goes on, and we’re going to need them.” Franklin continued to say, “The reality is, guys that truly commit and put the team first, things will come to them.”

Freshman quarterback Drew Allar came in as he completed 6-of-8 passes for 88 yards and 2 touchdowns. Freshman wide receiver Omari Evans came in as he caught 2 receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown.

The big star of the game was running back Nick Singleton. He rushed for over 170 yards and was phenomenal with multiple huge runs in the win.
