Penn St. 56 – Illinois 21

Penn State’s football season has come to a conclusion one week after it was originally intended to. The Nittany Lions added an extra game against the Fighting Illini of Illinois and came up with the win in a route, 56-21. Although Penn St. completes the year with a losing record, they also do so on a 4-game win streak after beating Illinois, Michigan St., Rutgers, and Michigan. Although its not the season that James Franklin’s team hoped for, the final four victories helped sweeten an otherwise bitter year of disappointment, and hopefully signals great things to come in 2021.
