My Predictions For 2013 Penn State Football

     Despite getting off to a rocky 0-2 start last year, Penn State bounced by to finish the season at 8-4. Penn State does lose some key players; Matt McGloin, Mike Mauti, Gerald Hodges,

Matt Stankiewtich, Jordan Hill, Sean Stanley.  On the flip side Penn State returns a lot of key players on both sides of the ball as well; Tight Ends Jesse James, Kyle Carter, Matt Lehman(All whom played a huge part of success in Bill O'Brien's Offense) 2012 Big Ten Wide Receiver of the Year Allen Robinson also returns. Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton both return and look to combine power and speed to the run game. On the Offensive Line the Nittany Lions return Garry Gillam(who played some Tight End last year and could still see some time there) John Urschel, Adam Gress, Ty Howle, Eric Shrive, Miles Dieffenbach, and Donovan Smith. Penn State's Defensive Front returns some key starters as well; 2012 Big Ten Freshman of the Year Deion Barnes, whom recorded 6 sacks last year leads the way with fellow Defensive End Anthony Zettel (who recorded 4 sacks of his own) and DaQuan Jones at Tackle. Mike Hull looks to be at the helm at Linebacker with Adrian Amos and

Stephen Obeng-Agyapong returning in the defensive backfield. With that said, here are my predictions!
                                                                            My Prediction                         Actual Result
Penn State - Syracuse                                         Penn State 31-13                Penn State 23-17              
Penn State - Eastern Michigan                           Penn State 34-10                Penn State 45-7
Penn State - Central Florida                               Penn State 38-17                Central Florida 34-31
Penn State - Kent State                                       Penn State 35-8                  Penn State 34-0
Penn State - Indiana                                            Penn State 42-10                Indiana 44-24
Penn State - Michigan                                        Penn State 35-24                 Penn State 43-40
Penn State - Ohio State                                       Ohio State 42-20                Ohio State 63-14
Penn State - Illinois                                             Penn State 45-6                  Penn State 24-17
Penn State - Minnesota                                       Penn State 31-17                Minnesota 24-10
Penn State - Purdue                                            Penn State 41-14                 Penn State 45-21
Penn State - Nebraska                                         Penn State 35-28                Nebraska 23-20
Penn State - Wisconsin                                       Wisconsin 38-31                 Penn State 31-24
While it maybe a bit of a stretch, I do think Penn State has a realistic chance at 10-2 so I will go out on a limb and say that they will do so!  WE ARE PENN STATE!
