Following a 41-14 win against Iowa that was never close in any regard, there were a lot of celebrations in Penn State’s corner Saturday night leading into Sunday morning. However, they haven’t forgotten the fans.
Head coach James Franklin and other Penn State coaches tweeted their thanks to the fans that came out to support the home team at Beavers Stadium Saturday night and Sunday morning.
