    Heisman Winner Salaam Dead

    By Pat Graham and Arnie Stapleton – (AP) Heisman Trophy winner Rashaan Salaam was found dead Monday night in a Boulder, Colorado park less than two miles from Folsom Field, where he carved his name into the University of Colorado record books as one of the greatest players in the program’s history. The Boulder County coroner’s office was still investigating the cause of the death of the 42-year-old Salaam, who won the Heisman in 1994. The body of the one-time running back was found at Eben G. Fine Park in Boulder. Police say foul play was not suspected. Salaam’s mother, Khalada, told USA…

    We Are…B1G Champions!

    By Michael Marot – INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — As Penn State’s band played and Lucas Oil Stadium rocked, thousands of fans clad in their traditional white shirts chanted “We Are Penn State.” It might have been more fitting if had it been “We are Penn State — and we are back.” Quarterback Trace McSorley put the Nittany Lions squarely back in the national spotlight Saturday night with an epic 38-31 come-from-behind victory over No. 6 Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. It was the largest comeback in the six-year history of the game. Before coach James Franklin left the field,…

    PSU B1G East Champions!

    By Travis Johnson (AP – State College, PA) – Trace McSorley has gotten used to seeing extra defenders crowding the line of scrimmage this season and he’s become adept at taking advantage of it. With another defense selling out to stop star running back Saquon Barkley, McSorley completed 17 of 23 passes for 376 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 8 Penn State to a 45-12 victory over Michigan State and the Big Ten East title Saturday. Penn State (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten, No. 7 CFP) edged No. 2 Ohio State for the East title, setting up a conference…

    GoPSUSports.com – UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – No. 12 Penn State led from the game’s opening drive to the finish, as another 200-plus all-purpose yard performance by Saquon Barkley and a staunch run defense that yielded just 30 yards carried Penn State to a 41-14 victory over Iowa in Big Ten football action Saturday night Beaver Stadium. A raucous crowd of 106,194 cheered the Nittany Lions to their fifth straight victory and their sixth straight at home. At 7-2, Penn State is off to its best start since starting the 2011 season 8-1. The Lions have won 12 out of their…
