Game day in Happy Valley is a special thing, and today takes on even greater significance, with the first game of the James Franklin era at Beaver Stadium. Penn State welcomes in Akron for a noon kick-off, after clinching a big win over UCF in Ireland in week one.
Franklin is clearly excited to get things going as well. He tweeted out an incredibly dramatic video about game day at Penn State. Be careful, Penn State fans. Things may get a bit dusty at the tailgate.
