Comment: What a far fall for Penn State. The Nittany Lions finished second in the East division last season and started the year 8-0 before dropping to the Gophers and Ohio State. Now they’re winless through three games of a nine-game schedule, and the performances keep trending down, from a one-point overtime loss at Indiana to a 38-25 defeat against the Buckeyes to a 35-19 failure to Maryland.
