The No. 20 Penn State Nittany Lions have started their 2021 College Football season strong with a 5-0 start. Since then, however, Penn State has lost three in a row with their most recent loss being a 33-24 road loss to No. 5 Ohio State. This was a game where they had the momentum several times, but self-inflicted errors occurred.

Penn State was able to put the game within three points at the end of the third quarter thanks to a one-yard touchdown run from Keyvone Lee. Their offense was efficient at converting on third downs and created some solid drives, but their three turnovers killed any momentum for their offense.

This is not a great look for head coach James Franklin and his Penn State as they were considered serious playoff contenders a few weeks ago and now they won’t even be ranked. Franklin says that he knows the team can bounce back in a big way next week and beyond.
