Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature an updated look at where the Lions could go this bowl season, plus a take on Sean Clifford and Drew Allar at quarterback.
Two Penn State beat writers addressed James Franklin’s big question at quarterback and whether the Drew Allar era should start now. Frank Bodani from the York Daily Record made the case that this should be Allar’s team now, stating that Penn State’ won’t be an elite team in 2023 regardless of who’s under center for the next four weeks. Mike Poorman from StateCollege.com also addressed the topic, wondering if now was the time to be “bold and aggressive.”
Following Penn State’s 44-31 loss to Ohio State at Beaver Stadium, the Lions slid three spots to No. 16 in the most recent Associated Press poll. They also saw forecasts for their future bowl destination shift mostly away from New Year’s Six territory and toward the most popular projection among national analysts: the Citrus Bowl.
Two predictions were still for a trip to the Orange Bowl and one came in for the Cotton Bowl, all of which were recapped by Daniel Gallen of Lions247.
