James Franklin had a big  35-31 B1G win on the road against Purdue. Despite the big win, the Athletic’s Audrey Snyder had some serious questions of the Nittany Lions.

Defensive linemen Coziah Izzard and Smith Vilbert could not travel to the Week 1 matchup versus Purdue. Both Izzard and Vilbert are both players who are deep in the depth chart, but provide reliable depth. Coach Franklin said he is not ready to make the announcement.

Penn State is also rotating between Beau Pribula and redshirt freshman Christian Veilleux on the scout team. Redshirt sophomore Mason Stahl is also taking some practice reps at scout team quarterback.

Five-star quarterback Drew Allar is another quarterback that is behind redshirt senior Sean Clifford. Allar was a former 5-star quarterback in the 2022 recruiting class, according to 247Sports.
