James Franklin slights Pitt after Penn State's win

Live updates: Penn State hosts Pittsburgh

Last week we beat Akron and it was a great win. That's the value of Penn State's big-play offense, they are never going to be out of games with their ability to strike quickly and find the end zone. "They're coached really well". Penn State agreed to renew the series in July of 2011, under then AD Tim Curley and head coach Joe Paterno. Pitt eventually became part of the ACC.

Penn State hasn't been sharp in this game, one it should have run away with, on paper. "When you look to your left and your right and you've got playmakers, and especially when you've got a guy like Trace McSorley in the backfield with you, you're confident in each other, and you're confident at any given moment the play can open up". They also are 10-0-1 ATS in their last 11 overall.

But it'll be the same mindset around Penn State's practice fields for the October 21 game against MI, which handed Penn State a second regular-season loss in 2016.

For context, a week ago, Penn State trounced Akron, 52-0.

Pitt ran 46 plays for 150 total yards and had the ball over two thirds of the first half (21:51 of game time).

The fans view the showdown with a different game plan.

There was a time, before the two most prominent football programs in Pennsylvania went on a 16-year hiatus, when the annual Penn State-Pitt game was one of college football's most hate-infused rivalries.

It's why 109,898 fans showed up Saturday to form the seventh-largest crowd at Beaver Stadium, and why social media lit up with enough glee to poke at the emotions of the Nittany Lions after Pitt's victory past year.

While Penn State did ultimately pull out a win against its in-state rival, and No. 2 Ohio State ultimately lost to Oklahoma at home, it's far from a lock to win the Big Ten for a second year in the row if they continue to deliver sub-par defensive performances. He threw a late, game-sealing interception in the last meeting that hung in his mind before kickoff.

"It was Week 2", Barkley continued.

Could Barkley carry this talented Penn State squad all the way to the National Championship game? That's the only point I felt disrespected on.

That's when Nittany Lions star running back Saquon Barkley flashed out of the backfield and accelerated down the seam past Pitt linebacker Saleem Brightwell.
