2020 Penn State Nittany Lions Football Preview

2020 Record:  11-2 (7-2)

2019 Scoring Offense: 35.8 
2019 Scoring Defense: 16.2 

2019 Offensive Rank: 15
2019 Defensive Rank: 8

Returning Offensive Production:  74%
Returning Defensive Production:  63%

2020 Recruiting Rank: 15

Offense: QB Sean Clifford is back with a stable of running backs, a healty and more experienced O-Line and question marks at WR.

Defense:  There are a few holes, but Franklin is turning the Lions into one of those auto reload schools.  The D won't be quite as good, but it will have them in the title hunt.

Overall:  Penn State is back to being an annual contender.  Will they keep pace with Ohio State?  They could.  Brutal 3 gmae stretch at Michigan and home against Iowa and Ohio State will tell.  If they manage to still be standing after that the rest of the road is a cakewalk.



Projected 2020 Record: 11-1
