NINETEEN PENN State players will be honored Saturday in Beaver Stadium, before they play their final home game, against Michigan. Christian Hackenberg will not be one of them. Doesn't mean the junior quarterback will spurn the NFL and return for his final season in 2016. Just means that nothing is certain right now. Hackenberg was asked during a news conference Tuesday afternoon if he has thought about whether this will be his last home appearance. "Not really," he said.

A newcomer who listens to the weekly news conference conducted by Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh must be prepared for a ride down some roads that most head football coaches never travel. The 14th-ranked Wolverines (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten), play Saturday at Beaver Stadium against Penn State (7-3, 4-2). They are coming off a 48-41 double-overtime victory over Indiana that saw quarterback Jake Rudock pass for 440 yards and a school-record six touchdowns. Rudock, a graduate transfer from Iowa, had seven straight games earlier this season in which he did not reach the 200-yard mark for passing.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The right arm of Christian Hackenberg has been the focus of Penn State fans for three seasons. On Saturday, his hands and his feet attracted attention as well. The 6-foot-4 junior quarterback delighted the crowd of 94,417 at Beaver Stadium by catching a cross-field pass from running back Nick Scott and dashing for a 14-yard touchdown. That play, plus his two early touchdown passes, provided plenty of cushion in the Nittany Lions' 39-0 rout of Illinois. In posting their first Big Ten shutout since a 20-0 win over Minnesota in 2009 - and largest margin of victory in the conference since defeating Wisconsin, 48-7, in 2008 - the Nittany Lions (7-2, 4-1)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Pressed up against the metal barricade of Gate A at Beaver Stadium on a Saturday morning, hundreds of Penn State students - clad in blue and white jerseys and wearing paw-print face tattoos - lowered into their best running stances. The gate rose, and they were off, sprinting through the empty stadium to their front-row seats in the south end zone. These students had camped out for days, studying, socializing, and sleeping in tents on the concrete outside the stadium before the homecoming game against Indiana earlier this month.

IT IS A TIME to reflect for Illinois interim football coach Bill Cubit, a Delaware County native, and a time to deflect for Penn State coach James Franklin. Franklin, a Langhorne native, strongly denied Tuesday that he has any interest in the job at the University of Miami, left vacant when Al Golden was fired Sunday. Dennis Dodd, of CBSSports.com, speculated in an online report that Franklin was one of 12 potential candidates for the position, writing that there were "rumblings" that the PSU boss might want to make a move, if for no other reason than he would have an easier time winning in the ACC Coastal than the Big Ten East.

Bill Cubit may be the first-year head coach at Illinois but he hasn't forgotten his Delaware County roots, and his old friends from that area haven't forgotten him, either. Cubit, 62, a native of Sharon Hill who became Illinois' offensive coordinator in 2013, took over the main job on Aug. 28 after Tim Beckman was fired amid allegations of mistreatment by former players. The move touched off a major reaction from the folks back home. "The reaching out of the kids from Sharon Hill and Academy Park and Widener is unbelievable," Cubit said Monday from his office in Champaign, Ill. "I'm touching base with a lot of the guys, a lot of the players from Widener and Sharon Hill.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - These have been a tough two weeks for the usually solid Penn State defense. The Nittany Lions have yielded more than 400 yards of total offense to both Ohio State and Maryland, the two worst performances statistically in the 13-game tenure of defensive coordinator Bob Shoop. Lions coach James Franklin outlined a few reasons for the uncommon run of his defense Tuesday at his weekly teleconference: poor tackling, up-tempo opponents with running quarterbacks and possible fatigue from not having had a bye yet this season.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - For weeks, Penn State coach James Franklin has talked about being more aggressive on offense, taking more shots downfield, and being less conservative in play-calling. In Saturday's 29-7 win over Indiana at Beaver Stadium, the Lions finally did it. The game plan didn't always work out, with quarterback Christian Hackenberg not always connecting with his intended downfield receiver. But the wideouts appeared more confident and energized on the field. It was a marked improvement from the unit's dismal performance in last week's 20-14 win over Army.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Its nonconference schedule concluded, Penn State now can hunker down for Big Ten play, a seven-game stretch where the Nittany Lions will see how they stack up in the loaded East Division with top-ranked Ohio State, No. 4 Michigan State and No. 18 Michigan. For players like sophomore tight end Mike Gesicki, it's an exciting time. "This is the part of the season that you work for all year," Gesicki said this week. "You play the nonconference games and we were able to get through them.

For more than a year-and-a-half, Anthony Zettel watched his father, Terry, battle the cancer that would take his life. He'd try to return to his Michigan home as much as he could, but whenever he did, Terry always had the same advice. "When I would come home," recalled Zettel, Penn State's fifth-year senior defensive tackle, "and he was going through chemo sessions, he would be telling me to 'get back to college and go do your thing because sitting here with me, you're not doing anything you want to do and bettering yourself.' " Zettel spoke Tuesday in the Beaver Stadium interview room, the first time he has met with reporters since his father passed away on Sept.
