UNIVERSITY PARK, PA, November 5—Senior Day was a smashing success as the Penn State Nittany Lions (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten) took apart the Wisconsin Badgers (8-2, 5-2) in front of the second largest crowd in Beaver Stadium history. The final score was 35–14.
This win kept the Lions’ BCS bowl hopes alive. If they win their final regular season game against Michigan State, they will win the Big Ten championship outright and with it they will get an automatic BCS bowl bid. So, while it is not yet a done deal, Penn State has taken one more giant step forward toward that lofty goal.
