5 reasons why Penn State is the best college football team
Penn State football has been one of the best college football teams for decades. Here are five reasons why Penn State football is the best team in the country.
1) Penn State football has a winning tradition that cannot be beat, with all but two head coaches since 1950 having winning records.
2) The Nittany Lions have won more national championships than any other Big Ten school, leading to unmatched pride and tradition among alumni and fans alike.
PSU has never won fewer than 8 games
This past season, Penn State football won their first Big Ten Championship since 2008 and their fourth conference title overall.
In addition, they made it to the Rose Bowl for the third time in school history.
They also had two consensus All-Americans who were finalists for the Heisman Trophy.
Lastly, they were ranked #8 in all four major polls at season’s end.
With all this success, it’s easy to see why some people would think that Penn State football is the best team in America.
We always beat Ohio sorry, it’s true!
As we all know, football season has finally come to an end.
And what a season it was!
We had a tough start, but we pulled together and won 8 games in a row to finish 10-2 and win our second Big Ten Championship of the decade.
But that’s not why they call us Linebacker U for nothing. Our defense was just as good as our offense this year with
All Americans like DaQuan Jones and Anthony Zettel and ranked 4th nationally in points allowed per game.

Our coach gets back on the horse after getting kicked off.
Harder than it looks, too.
Coach Joe Paterno’s career at Pennslyvania State University spans nearly half a century and has been one of the most successful coaching careers in college football history.
He served as head coach for 46 years and won two national championships, but on November 9, 2011
he was fired amid allegations that he had failed to report an incident of sexual abuse by his former assistant coach.
Following his dismissal there were protests on campus by students and alumni demanding his return.
The Board of Trustees refused to reinstate him, but did agree to give him the title of President Emeritus with no compensation.
On January 12th 2012 it was announced that Joe would be returning as the interim head coach.
In light of the recent sanctions imposed by NCAA President Mark Emmert which included a $60 million fine and 4 year ban from postseason play, many people are speculating about what could happen if Joe returns as head coach next season.
We are not Ohio State.
Penn State football has a long history of success.
From Joe Paterno to Bill O’Brien, Penn State football has been led by great coaches and players for decades.
And now we have a coach that embodies all of those great qualities.
James Franklin personifies everything that makes this program so special.
He’s tough, he’s smart, he loves his players and he cares about winning at all costs.
After three weeks into his first season with the Nittany Lions, he has shown that there is no limit to what he can do for this team.
