Tuesday Roundup – Ohio State Week
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – As he does every week, Penn State head coach James Franklin met with members of the media Tuesday afternoon for his weekly press conference. Cornerback Grant Haley and offensive lineman Ryan Bates also joined him for a pair of additional media sessions.
The second-ranked Nittany Lions are fully underway in preparations for an upcoming road trip at No. 6 Ohio State.
“To get into Ohio State, we have so much respect for the university as a whole and the football program and their history and their tradition,” Franklin said. “Obviously Urban Meyer is one of the most respected coaches in college football and has been very successful there and everywhere else he’s been.”
The transition from more than 110,000 cheering fans clad in white to nearly 104,000 fans cheering against Penn State isn’t one that’s unfamiliar for the Nittany Lions, as they prepare to enter another tough road environment at Ohio Stadium.
