There was a lot of happiness around the Penn State Nittany Lions last season as the team started 7-2. The problem is that the team lost their last four games to finish 7-6. Penn State also will begin life after Christian Hackenberg now as well and with a tough schedule to deal with. The one saving grace is that Saquon Barkley will be back at running back and while opponents may try to stack the box to stop him, Barkley will be expected to carry a lot of the load this season. Home games against Ohio State and Michigan State will be big tests along with a trip to Michigan early in the season. Can Penn State believe in Trace McSorley’s arm enough to get this team to a major bowl game in 2016?
