It’s been a month since Penn State’s 2020 season came to an end, choosing to finish the season during B1G Champions Week and not participate in a bowl game. The team finished 4-5, salvaging something from a year in which the Nittany Lions got of to their worst start in program history.

Penn State entered the 2020 season as one of the favorites to win the B1G and challenge for a spot in the College Football Playoff. A devastating overtime loss to Indiana and home defeat to Ohio State in the first two weeks of the year crushed all of those goals for the Lions.

After an 0-5 start, Penn State was able to turn things around a bit, winning the final four games on the schedule. The Nittany Lions defeated Michigan, Rutgers, Michigan State and Illinois to close the year on a positive note.
