    Could this be one of the best defense's to see the field in NCAA 12? Here are some interesting facts.

    Penn State finished the regular Season 12-0 Beating 4 users and 8 computer opponents.

    The Penn State defense:

    • 85 points allowed in 12 games
    • 7 points per game
    • Allowed only 7 offensive TDs
    • 2 shutouts
    • 412 yds rushing allowed
    • 34 rushing yards per game
    • 45 interceptions
    • 9 fumble recoveries
    • +44 on turnovers. 10 gives to 54 takes
    • 16 defensive TDs
    Now the million dollar question is can they close? They rely on their defense to score, give the offense short fields and force the opponents into mistakes. IF the defense should falter a bit can the offense pick it up? We shall see but the game will not change.
    2 more games left to see if this team can get the monkees off thies back! All I know it has been a fun season so far and we will miss this senior filled defense next season.

    Yeah the conference championship game will decide it all. Do that to Nebraska again (or just shut them down offensively) and yes this is a phenomenal defense.

    That is unreal. I know one thing: good luck beating a very frustrated Mo.

    I'm dedicating this next game to twister. With a Nebraska win and some help Michigan can get into the title game and nothing would be sweeter than seeing Michigan possibly winning a title before PSU ;)

    Yeah some of those points came directly because of turnovers..... Had a good shot at it yesterday, and you seemed to get your composure back for a minute then just made a mistake...
