With losses in each of their last three games, the Nittany Lions are sputtering. And things didn't get much better Monday.


Regardless of what happened last week, Northwestern knew it was going to face a big challenge in Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg and the Nittany Lions' league-best passing attack.


The Big Ten is jam-packed with incredible running backs. Nearly every team has a featured back that's doing great things on a week-to-week basis.


For a team that entered the week as the second-worst rushing team in the Big Ten, Penn State proved its offense was much more than one-dimensional Saturday.


If you have one great running back, that's apparently not enough. Two? That won't be enough either.
