There's going to be an air of emotion for the Nittany Lions going into this game. This is their bowl game. This is their Senior Day. This is they day they're going to win one for Michael Mauti. (And if you're going to ask why Penn State's all wearing 42's on their helmets? There's your answer.)

But in fairness? Them putting #42 on their helmets is the rough equivalent of us dropping the action W to put up a #44 in tribute to Chris Borland, who's not going to play. Rob Havenstein's lined up with the #1 unit in warmups, but he's visibly limping. So he's going to be up until the final moments.

The Weather Channel says that radar shows there's a real chance for snow between as the game moves into the second half, providing a feel for the game that will make the old school purists among us proud.

So join us as we see if Montee Ball can get the record and the Borland-less defense can stop Allen Robinson from having the greatest single season in the history of Penn State receivers. And of course, if we can't throw a spoiler into State College Senior Night.
