Penn State is gearing up for the Cotton Bowl on Saturday, and AD Sandy Barbour met with the media on Friday ahead of the game.

James Franklin and Memphis head coach Ryan Silverfield also took part in the media day Friday morning as the Nittany Lions and Tigers get set to face off. Among Franklin’s comments, he indicated Penn State is likely planning something special for the Cotton Bowl uniforms.

Following the coaches, Barbour took the time to address the media and touched on a number of different topics. One thing she mentioned was the contract details for Franklin’s new contract extension.

The new deal for Franklin was agreed on in early December, but the details have yet to be released to the public. Barbour indicated those should be made public after the first of the year:

Barbour also touched on the topic of potential renovations for Beaver Stadium. While renovations may be in the plans, it will still be a while until that happens:

For now, the Nittany Lions are gearing up for a third New Year’s Six Bowl under Franklin. A win would give Penn State 11 wins for the third time in the past four seasons.
