Head Coach: Joe Paterno (354-177-3, 40 years; 56th at school) 2005 Record: 11-1,7-1/T1st Big Ten
Location: University Park, PA Turf: Grass Capacity: 107,501 Seating Chart:
Joe Paterno had his squad #2 in the country with a 9-0 record in 1999 but from that point to the end of 2004 was just 27-36 and achieved his 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th losing seasons of his 40 year career. In that span 13 of 22 losses in conf play were by 8 pts or less as they were a snakebitten team. Last year I called Penn St the 3rd most improved team in the country and despite their 4-7 season of 2004 they were the only team in the NCAA that did not allow 21 points in a game all season and had one of the best D's in the country. They had 13 senior starters back, making it the most experienced team in the Big 10 with 16 starters back overall including 9 on defense. I called for the Lions to open up 5-0 before their showdown with Ohio St and they did just that. Their offense, which averaged just 17.7 ppg in 2004, had vastly improved. They began the year with 13 turnovers in 3.5 games but had just 9 in their final 8.5. The Lions broke a school record (55,1947) for points in a half with 56 in the 1H vs Illinois and nearly doubled their scoring averageto 34.4 ppg (highest since 1994) with a balanced offense (213 ypg rush, 209 pass). I rated their defense second best in the country and they held Minnesota's RB Maroney to just 48 yards and UW's Calhoun to 38. They trailed Northwestern 29-27 with 1:39 left but got a 4th & 15 conv from their own 15 and then a 36 yard TD pass with :51 left to pull out the win. They blasted an undefeated Minnesota team 44-14 and then upset #6 Ohio St in a night home game where its crowd was at its best in years. Unfortunately Lloyd Carr convinced the refs to put a few seconds back on the clock and UM got a TD pass with :01 left which cost PSU an unbeaten year. The Lions beat their next 3 B10 foes by 30.7 ppg and wrapped up the Big 10 Title by beating MSU 31-22 despite being outgained 401-293 in the season finale. They earned their first ever BCS bowl berth (started 1998) but needed 3 OT's to get past Fla St in the Orange Bowl. Paterno won the AP Coach of the Year and revealed prior to the game 4 PSU administrators had asked him to quit after the '04 season. This is a much less experienced squad with just 9 starters back. Having a mobile QB like Michael Robinson was a perfect fit for the offense. This year with an inexperienced 0-line and a less mobile QB, the offensive numbers will drop. The D is more inexperienced with just 4 starters back but has the best set of LB's in the I country and will be stronger than expected.
