James Franklin praises Penn State's offensive line, still searching for more growth entering Week 4
Coming off a powerful victory over Auburn last Saturday, Penn State football is seeking to improve more.
Penn State head coach, James Franklin was pleased with his offensive line and how they performed against Auburn but still thinks there is work to be done.
“You guys will tell me clearly how they’re playing,” Franklin said during his Tuesday afternoon press conference. “This past weekend with zero sacks and being able to run the ball… I do think it was a step in the right direction. … Still have work to do.”
