STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) James Franklin knows Penn State is facing more uncertainty this season than the last two, when the Nittany Lions quickly matured into one of the best teams in the country.
Entering his fifth season in Happy Valley, Franklin is confident that some new faces will step in and help Penn State sustain its re-established championship form.
"We've got a good-looking football team," Franklin said. "We're athletic. We're inexperienced, but we're talented."
