Penn State's James Franklin throws shade at Pittsburgh after 33-14 victory

Posted September 11, 2017

James Franklin slighted rival Pitt after Penn State handled the Panthers 33-14 on Saturday. We want to be a balanced team. "Everybody just made sure they played to their best abilities today". 11, 2016. Penn State beat Lock Haven 4-1.

"I know previous year for their win it was like the Super Bowl, but for us this was just like beating Akron", Franklin said.

While Nittany Lion fans could be disappointed about the current spot in the poll, college football rankings are very fluid and change from week to week. They held onto that win all season. Ehlinger went 15-of-27 for 222 passing yards and one TD and added 48 more yards on the ground.

KANSAS STATE 55, CHARLOTTE 7 Kendall Adams scored two defensive touchdowns in the first half to propel No. 19 Kansas State (2-0) over visiting Charlotte (0-2).

"People kind of keep asking me about this game", Franklin said.

Clairton's Lamont Wade made a reference to the Pitt coaching staff getting keychains made after previous year victory on Twitter. I think kind of how a year ago ended, I think that was playing a lot into it.

The game started much easier for him.

Pittsburgh is coming off a 28-21 OT win over Youngstown State at home last week. "I'd like to see us sustain some more drives, but overall we showed that we could score at any moment".

Pitt's defense kept Penn State out of the end zone until Barkley, a Heisman Trophy candidate, came through with the type of play that will help make his case.

STOPPING SAQUON: Barkley lit up the Panthers for 130 total yards and five touchdowns last fall.

Penn State controlled field position all afternoon with kicker Tyler Davis, punter Blake Gillikin, punt returner DeAndre Thompkins and terrific coverage.

"I think emotions were high", McSorley said. So we need to be better there, obviously. Mike Gesicki had 58 yards and two touchdowns while Barkley contributed 54 yards in three catches.

Starter Max Browne completed 19 of 32 passes for 138 yards with two interceptions.

In his opening statement to the media after the win, Franklin delivered a serious truckload of shade directed at the Pitt's program.

NOTES: Penn State DE Shareef Miller missed all but a couple of plays last week with an ankle injury.

VIRGINIA TECH 27, DELAWARE 0 Greg Stroman returned a punt for a touchdown, and Josh Jackson threw two scoring passes to carry No. 18 Virginia Tech (2-0) to a victory at home over DE (1-1). Pitt RB Qadree Ollison and TE Matt Flanagan were shaken up with apparent lower leg injuries in the first half.

Penn State hasn't been sharp in this game, one it should have run away with, on paper.

Freshman Alessia Russo watched as her shot from outside the box was deflected over the crossbar by Penn State goalkeeper Rose Chandler with just under three minutes to play-ending UNC's chances of tying the affair.
