The state of Pennsylvania is known for its football team.
So when you hear the name “Pennsylvania State” and the phrase “The Big Blue Nation” you think of a football team that won the Big Ten West title in 2009 and is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation.
However, that was just a preview of what the team will look like in 2019, when the Penn State Nittany Lions visit Memorial Stadium for the first time since they moved to Lincoln Financial Field.
Penn State has won just one game in its two seasons at Memorial Stadium, and it will be looking to extend that streak with another win in 2019.
While that victory may not have been a marquee one, it was one the team could get by.
The Nittas entered the game ranked No of 1 in the country and were facing a 1-3 record at the time.
After a comeback win over Notre Dame, Penn State came back from a 13-point deficit to defeat Michigan in overtime.
That came in front of a crowd of over 40,000 people, including former Penn State linebacker and current Penn State head coach Mike Riley.
Penn Staters coach Joe Moorhead will lead the team into the 2019 season as the interim head coach.
Moorhead is the nephew of the legendary Penn State coach, Joe Moorack, who is credited with winning more Big Ten titles than any other coach.
He has also been in the NFL, college basketball, football, and baseball.
He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and is the father of two children, and his wife, Michelle, is a former NFL player.
After winning back-to-back Big Ten Championships, Penn Statters head coach Kevin Hogan is in the first year of his second season at Penn State.
Hogan is the first head coach to take the Nitties to a Rose Bowl since 1990, and he is expected to be a factor on both sides of the ball in 2019 and beyond.
The Penn Statics are led by quarterback Josh Rosen, who has been one of the best quarterbacks in the conference in 2019 after completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 2,087 yards and 15 touchdowns.
The former Notre Dame signal-caller threw for 3,542 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2019 to lead the Nits to a perfect season record.
His best performance came in the loss to Notre Dame on Sept. 11 when he threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns.
Rosen was also named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.
Rosen is the No. 1 quarterback in the 2019 class and the No, 4 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
