Hidden Gems: Oregon State 2008

We’re bringing back Hidden Gems! Some of you longtime BSD readers may remember this series where we reflect on the games that we’ve enjoyed over the years that haven’t quite lived on in Penn State lore. We’ll be giving these games their due, as we reflect on a variety of memorable (but not too memorable) games from different Nittany Lions teams over the years.

Next up...Penn State shows some offensive firepower against a worthy Pac-10 (!) program.

Penn State entered the 2008 season with modest expectations. They were ranked No. 22 to open the year, and by and large, most people expected a similar to story to how 2006 and 2007 went — a good, solid team that would finish right around the 9-win mark.
