They are the Final Six, a portion of the 46th and last recruiting class gathered in 2011 by head coach Joe Paterno. Defensive tackle Anthony Zettel, defensive end Carl Nassib, offensive lineman Angelo Mangiro, tight end Kyle Carter, linebacker Ben Kline, and wide receiver Matt Zanellato all redshirted that first season on campus, a season that went horribly wrong after revelations in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal and the firing of Paterno....

The Penn State pass defense, which has been ranked near the top of the FBS rankings in yards allowed this season, will get a major test from Michigan quarterback Jake Rudock on Saturday in a senior day matchup against the 14th-ranked Wolverines at Beaver Stadium. But the leader of the defense, senior cocaptain Jordan Lucas, will be watching from the sidelines. The Nittany Lions' starting strong safety suffered a season-ending injury in the first half of the team's Nov. 7 loss to Northwestern.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - During his team's bye week, Penn State coach James Franklin watched Michigan's double-overtime, 48-41 win over Indiana last Saturday. "A heck of a game as a fan of college football to watch," Franklin said. But he was also watching as a coach, trying to learn from Indiana's offensive effort as his Nittany Lions (7-3, 4-2 Big Ten) prepare to face Michigan (8-2, 5-1) on Saturday at Beaver Stadium. The Wolverines defense ranks second in the Football Bowl Subdivision, allowing an average of 268 yards per game.

Things are looking up for Penn State football. The program has all its scholarships back after three years of limited numbers under NCAA sanctions. The Nittany Lions will lose only six seniors who have played regular roles on offense or defense this season. The one thing that would reinforce this surge would be a signature win. The Lions have yet to defeat a ranked team in the two-season run of coach James Franklin, and will get another chance to pick one up Saturday on senior day at Beaver Stadium against No. 14 Michigan.

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.
