Saturday was Penn State day on the Big Ten Network. The network played classic Nittany Lion games and aired an enhanced version of the 2013 four overtime Michigan game with former players Allen Robinson, Christian Hackenberg, Sam Ficken and Bill Belton on hand to provide commentary. The Big Ten Network tour bus also visited practice, interviewed players, and coaches, and posted a whole host of videos recapping their time.
- The crew has arrived.
- The view and the combo are things Penn State fans are hoping for early and often in 2019.

- Once again, there are plenty of eyes on the offensive line this season. Their play is crucial to a successful year.
I look forward to watching @CoachLimegrover coach every year. Such a good teacher. Told me his group has been sharpened by going against @PennStateFball outstanding DL in camp. Has reminded them several times just how good the group theyre competing with is. pic.twitter.com/eO0lpniUNZ— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 10, 2019
- This one really catches the eye as Walker shows great leverage in blocking a guy who is one of the best players in the conference.

- Brown is also one of the more intriguing players heading into the season. Everyone knows you can't tackle Journey with open arms or it's a highway run into the midnight sun.

- The calling card for Penn State this season is their defense and the line will lead that charge.
DL Group incredibly impressive, as expected. PJ Mustipher blowing this one up. pic.twitter.com/XslAA4jsvf— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 10, 2019
- Speaking of...
The crew offered their final thoughts.
The Big Ten Network has a way of hyping up every team on their tour, but regardless, this was a fun look at the team as the season nears. It was a memorable day on the network for Penn State fans and an interesting look at some of the younger players who will contribute to the success this season.
