How they got here

The Nittany Lions had some big wins early in the season, including a Week 3 victory over Auburn. Penn State then faltered several times during the rest of the season, including a nine-overtime thriller against Illinois. It was clear Penn State was the fourth-best team in the division despite looking like a contender. The Razorbacks pulled off some big wins themselves in conference play, including triumphs over Texas A&M and LSU. Sam Pittman has done a great job with this program and is poised to keep making noise going forward.
