Friendly wagers amongst NFL teammates over games between their respective alma maters is nothing new. It was just two years ago that JJ Watt donned Penn State gear after the Nittany Lions won the Big Ten title over his Wisconsin Badgers. Now, it's James Conner's turn, after losing to (presumably) a few of his Steelers teammates.
Conner, who was featured in last week's pregame hype video, shares the Pittsburgh locker room with former Nittany Lions Jesse James, Marcus Allen, and of course Malik Golden.

In case you have forgotten, Conner lost this wager due to Penn State's 51-6 victory over Pitt, which works out to a 45 point loss for the Panthers. Ouch.
