STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — As rain pounded the field during warmups, Penn State’s PJ Mustipher found himself in his natural element.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — James Franklin took a few moments to look over the stats after his team’s latest win.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The story of Sean Clifford and Tanner Morgan's began on a seventh-grade football field.
Their final scheduled matchup is Oct. 22 when Minnesota visits Penn State.
