Eddie George was so infatuated with Penn State football as a youngster that even his daydreams were in blue and white. The setting was the lush Beaver Stadium turf, and he'd close his eyes and imagine himself falling in line with all the great tailbacks who have passed through Happy Valley. Those dreams were fueled by his memory of jumping up and down in front of his television as a 13-year-old, watching the Nittany Lions grab the 1986 national championship with their win over Miami in the Fiesta Bowl.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - "May no act of ours bring shame" bellowed from the crowd of thousands gathered Monday night outside Beaver Stadium on the Pennsylvania State University campus. Students sang the Penn State alma mater. They climbed atop tall carts and pushed themselves against the metal partition of Gate A, where students enter on game day. And they cheered the NCAA's decision to allow Penn State to compete in a bowl game this postseason and to restore its full number of scholarships for 2015.

Christian Hackenberg has put up solid numbers in Penn State's 3-0 start to the 2014 season, but the sophomore quarterback could be doing so at a price. Hackenberg was sacked five times Saturday in the Nittany Lions' 13-10 victory over Rutgers and took a hit on numerous other occasions. For the season, he has been sacked eight times - a combination of Penn State's inexperienced offensive line and his tendency to wait for a receiver to get open rather than take off running. The Lions' rushing attack has been of minimal help in keeping Hackenberg out of certain passing situations.
