Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature praise from FOX Sports writers Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel and 2018 quarterback recruit Justin Fields’ expected return for the Blue-White game.
Penn State was a talking point for Feldman and Mandel on their “The Audible” for FOX Sports. Feldman was just on campus to check out the Nittany Lions and came away gushing about Trace McSorley, Saquon Barkley, Mike Gesicki and the overall potential of the offense. The two writers were right to “fawn” over this Penn State team, writes Chris Grovich for Roar Lions Roar in a good recap of the podcast.
The full show can be found below. The Penn State discussion begins around the 4:00 mark.
