Last season, Penn State had one of the better passing offenses, but the rushing offense was not as efficient due to the offensive line. Penn State is looking to replace 3 of its 5 starters from last season.

The offensive line for Penn State was a position group that needed some attention this off-season. Last season, the offensive line gave up 34 sacks and provided little impact on the rushing as they didn’t have a game where they produced a 100-yard rusher.

Two of the new projected starters for Penn State in 2022 are redshirt sophomore Olumuyiwa Fashanu at left tackle and redshirt freshman Landon Tengwall at left guard.

Penn State head coach James Franklin addressed that unit during Penn State media day on Saturday. According to Franklin, he feels confident in the offensive line’s development and progression after a solid off-season.

Franklin points to the unit as a group that was “empathized” throughout the offseason. It still has to be put into work on the field, but the unit has been focused on to this point.
