UNIVERSITY PARK, PA, Sept. 2 — The Nittany Lions braved inclement conditions at Beaver Stadium to capture their first victory of the season, beating the defending MAC champion Akron Zips 34–16. The game did not go completely as this Turkey expected; however, we got to see what works and what needs work.
Alas, unless you were lucky enough to have been one of the 106,505 rain-soaked fans at Beaver Stadium, you got to experience it through the veil of ESPN2’s worst announcing crew. The rain would have been preferable. More on this less than dynamic duo later.
