JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Brandon Bell's junior season at Penn State has not gone as smoothly as he would have liked with nagging injuries that kept him out of two games and left him at less than 100 percent for a few others. But like the rest of his teammates, the linebacker and graduate of Oakcrest High School in South Jersey has had a chance to rest and recuperate since the Nittany Lions' final regular-season game on Nov. 28, and he's ready to end his season Saturday in the TaxSlayer Bowl against Georgia on a successful note.

Bruiser Flint's head dropped when he saw the ball spin through the hoop on the other end of the floor. He knew his team had let yet another one slip out of its hands. Drexel allowed Penn State to rally from a 17-point first-half deficit, falling to the Nittany Lions, 63-57, at the Palestra on Saturday. "We got tentative," Flint said. "We did what we have been doing all season. We have leads, and we play not to lose. That's what we have been doing. We have lost a lot of games like this.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - The time is drawing near for Christian Hackenberg to think about his future, whether he will return to Penn State for his senior year next season or leave for the NFL draft. But for Hackenberg, the Nittany Lions' starting quarterback and leader, the future consists of resting up and then diving headlong into preparations for his team's bowl game. "Again, I'm not really thinking about my future too much," he said after the Lions were crushed, 55-16, by No. 6 Michigan State at Spartan Stadium.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - When Penn State scored just before halftime Saturday at Spartan Stadium to cut into its deficit against No. 6 Michigan State, the Nittany Lions ran to the locker room with some optimism, and their newfound fans from Ohio State had a reason to be encouraged. But in the second half, the Nittany Lions played terribly, perhaps their worst half of the two-year James Franklin era, and the Spartans showed why they deserved to go to the Big Ten championship game. Michigan State (11-1, 7-1 Big Ten)

As the unquestioned leader of the Penn State offense, Christian Hackenberg knows he must keep a tight focus on preparing for the next game, making sure there are no distractions getting in the way of the Nittany Lions for them to perform at their best on Saturday. The junior quarterback, however, provided an interesting perspective this week as the Lions prepared for their final regular-season game, at No. 6 Michigan State. "We're just focused on Penn State and what we need to do to continue to have a great season and win another football game," he said this week.

It's been the same old story for Penn State football this season, with the same issues keeping James Franklin's team from joining the elite teams in the Big Ten. An offensive line that has blocked poorly for the run and the pass. A quarterback who has been sacked 36 times. Special teams that keep making mistakes. A team that continues to commit errors substituting or lining up in formations, forcing Franklin to waste timeouts. Meanwhile, the fans wonder why the Nittany Lions (7-4, 4-3)

PENN STATE will assume the role of giant-killer for its regular-season finale Saturday at Michigan State, though it's not a role everyone embraces. "Obviously, it's a very highly ranked team, and they're a great team," offensive tackle Andrew Nelson said Tuesday of the sixth-ranked Spartans. "They just beat Ohio State (17-14, on the road), and that's huge. But the way we're approaching this game, it's the same as any other game. " Uh, really? MSU is 10-1, and on Saturday (3:30 p.m., ESPN)

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.
