Theyll probably try to avoid it, but no one can blame members of Penn States football team if they are playing a little scoreboard-watching during warm-ups Saturday.Three-and-a-half hours before the eighth-ranked Nittany Lions (9-2, 7-1 Big Ten) take the field for their Senior Day finale against Michigan State (3-8, 1-7), there is a pretty significant conference game taking place at the Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio, between No. 3 Michigan (10-1, 7-1) and No. 2 Ohio State (10-1, 7-1).If the favored Buckeyes take care of business and defeat the Wolverines for the 12th time in 13 years, Penn State will take the field with a chance to go to the Big Ten title game in Indianapolis by virtue of its dramatic 24-21 comeback win over Ohio State earlier this season. However, Michigan, which defeated the Nittany Lions 49-10 back on Sept. 24 at the Big House, owns the tiebreaker if it can upset the Buckeyes.Penn State was just 2-2 after that ugly loss in Ann Arbor and some restless Nittany Lions fans were calling for head coach James Franklin to be fired. But seven consecutive Big Ten wins, including one that featured a 17-point fourth quarter and 14-point comeback against Ohio State, has changed the atmosphere in State College dramatically.Its surreal, defensive end Evan Schwan said. I never thought as a freshman that wed be in the position we are now. Im very proud of everyone on the team, the fans and staff for sticking with us and working through the tough times.Schwan knows all about those times. He was an underclassmen during the toughest years in program history, when the NCAA levied brutal sanctions -- banning the team from a bowl game for two years, gutting its scholarship counts and allowing players to transfer without having to sit out.Now, Schwan is one of 12 seniors who are helping lead the way and getting crucial contributions from their younger teammates who have elevated their game in whats been a dominant run since their last loss to the Wolverines.An offensive turnaround under first-year coordinator Joe Moorhead has reaped massive reward. The defense has done the same with two of its biggest pieces -- linebackers Jason Cabinda and Brandon Bell back.Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions arent erring on special teams and are winning second halves every week.Theyll try to continue those trends against a Michigan State team that has gone the other way. The Spartans won the Big Ten title last season but havent been able to ride a youth movement like the Nittany Lions. Michigan State has started nine true freshmen this season and will likely be without top defensive lineman Malik McDowell again in this one.Obviously, this is a unique situation, Franklin, who went 6-6 and 7-5 in his first two seasons at Penn State, said. Like I mentioned before, were tough to beat at home when that stadium is rocking with 107,000. Were going to need that on Saturday.Michigan State has shown that it wont go down easily. The Spartans nearly upset Ohio State last week at home, losing 17-16 after failing to convert a go-ahead two-point conversion with 4:41 remaining. Running back LJ Scott continues to play his best football, running for a career-high 160 yards and a touchdown against the Buckeyes while also catching a 64-yard touchdown pass. The sophomore has run for more than 100 yards in four of the last five games.There are positives out there, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. There are a lot of positives and were a very young football team in a lot of respects, but it doesnt help ease the pain when you lose and you lose close.Michigan State has led in every game it has played this season but still finds itself at 3-8 overall and 1-7 in the Big Ten heading into the finale at Penn State. Last weeks loss to Ohio State was no different as missed opportunities and a handful of crucial penalties kept the Spartans from the win.The failure to convert the two-point conversion in the fourth quarter was just one example of not executing down the stretch and it was followed by a sack and interception in the last minute.I think weve had chances throughout every football game weve played this year, Dantonio said. Weve been ahead, and then somethings happened. Thats the game. We gotta be able to make plays at the end of a football game, this ones no different. http://www.nflcardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Chandler-Jones-Jersey/ . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care.

Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. http://www.nflcardinalsrookiestore.com/Hoodie/ .

The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out.
