Ohio State looked like they were about to boat race Penn State when they took a 21-0 advantage, but the Nittany Lions clawed back. It was too much to overcome as they lost 28-17 and Penn State fell to 9-2 on the season.

After a week where quarterback Sean Clifford said he received threats on social media following the Minnesota game, we're heading in a different direction. Each week I look at James Franklin's Twitter mentions and usually it's a mess of people saying to firing him or everyone around him. Saturday was no different, but I am not going to focus on those people this week. Today, I'm going to shine a light on the more positive tweets and though this may be shorter, I will be better for it.

Away we go.

OK, just two more of these I have to get through after this week.

Look at all this love.

It's been a grinder of a schedule and no game is harder than the one vs. Ohio State.

Penn State down 14-0 at the half and there were plenty of tweets questioning punting inside Ohio State territory and the offensive play calling, but Sue was just there to offer support.

More positive tweets as Penn State pulled closer in the game.

After Penn State cut it to four, Ohio State responded with a big touchdown.

Sue is just a sweet person it seems.

Sue, thank you for making this journey through the mentions bearable.

The team showed some fight, but in the end, they couldn't quite get over the hump. With Senior Day coming this Saturday against Rutgers, a 10-win season seems likely and then we will have to wait and see what bowl game comes calling. We'll be back next week for some more Twitter mentions.
