ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit gave his thoughts about Penn State's chances to win a title in 2017.

Penn State shocked much of the college football world last year when the Nittany Lions won the Big Ten and made it to the Rose Bowl. Although they lost to USC in a tight game, Kirk Herbstriet thinks the Nittany Loins can repeat the success they had during the 2016 season.

Herbie was asked if Penn State is a national title contender for the 2017 season.

His answer: Absolutely.

The road won't be easy. Their toughest tests of the season come in back-to-back weeks at home against Michigan and then on the road against Ohio State.
