Looking ahead to Indiana

With no title implications on the line or polls to watch, there’s little buzz about this week’s game against Indiana.

Just don’t tell that to Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien.

It’s Thanksgiving break at Penn State (6-4, 4-2 Big Ten), but the first-year coach is hoping students and fans altered their travel plans slightly to cheer on a team playing the final two home games of an unparalleled season. The Hoosiers (4-6, 2-4) visit Beaver Stadium on Saturday.

“I’m not going to beg anybody to come to the game, but I’m going to tell them this: This is a team that has been through unprecedented situations,” O’Brien said. “So as fans, as students, can we not choose to support them in their last two games, eight quarters of football?
“I think this is a team that’s poured its heart and soul into this season.”
