The Penn State Nittany Lions are coming off an excellent 11-2 season, where their only two losses were to teams that played in the College Football Playoff. Even just a little improvement may see the Nittany Lions go from a bridesmaid to a bride, with many liking Penn State as a College Football Playoff dark horse candidate.
The biggest question mark entering the season for the Nittany Lions is the quarterback position after the graduation of longtime starter and fan favorite Sean Clifford. Now all eyes are on Drew Allar, a 5-star recruit, who is a physical specimen at 6-5, 240 lbs. Many in the Lion fanbase thought Allar should have been given the keys to the offense last season. Well, coming into this season, it is all Allar's, and he is the guy who is supposed to bring Penn State from conference championship contender to national championship contender.
