Obrien's Lions - Penn State vs Wisconsin

Coach O'Brien never gave up on Sam Ficken - "stickin with Fickin!" I knew he was a good kicker, by his leg arch and distance he was getting with his kicks and I think Coach O'Brien knew that too. This magnificent 37-yard kick on a brutally cold November night can easily be seen as the ball just passes inside the left upright. It had plenty of distance; it sure must have felt good for Sam!

The above image illustrates the inner workings of the Penn State offense. Look how number 76 Donovan Smith is set to fill the gap created by number 60 Ty Howle as he reaches and blocks to his left. This blocking combination gave the opening for Zwinak to make a beautiful run for a second quarter touchdown. It wasn't easy, but he did it. Penn State 24 Wisconsin 21.


Alma Mater

Coach O'Brien started a tradition this year, having the players sing the Alma Mater after each game serenaded by the Penn State Marching Blue Band. No Alma Mater has been so sweet as this one. I saw people with tears in their eyes.
