Big Ten Elite: 2016 Penn State Football to Debut Friday

Big Ten Elite special airs at 7 p.m. on Big Ten Network

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; September 21, 2017 – The 2016 Penn State Football season will be immortalized in a Big Ten Elite special that debuts Friday at 7 p.m. on the Big Ten Network. The show will also air following the Penn State volleyball match versus Nebraska, which is live on BTN.

 

The Big Ten Elite will feature exclusive interviews with coaches and student-athletes from the 2016 Big Ten Championship team. A listing of all Big Ten Elite: 2016 Penn State Football airings is available at http://btn.com/shows/big-ten-elite/.

 

The 2016 Penn State Football season was one that fans will long remember with a nine-game winning streak, a Big Ten Championship, Rose Bowl berth and a record-setting offense. All totaled, 33 school records were broken during the Big Ten Championship season, including every major passing record. Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Saquon Barkley and Big Ten Championship game MVP Trace McSorley led the offense, while All-Big Ten selections Marcus Allen, Garrett Sickels, Jason Cabinda and Evan Schwan guided a defense that was among the best in the country in penetrating the backfield.

 

The Nittany Lions won their first outright Big Ten Championship since 1994 and fourth overall with a thrilling 38-31 win over Wisconsin. The victory earned Penn State its fourth Rose Bowl berth in program history. The Nittany Lions finished the season No. 5 in the CFP rankings and No. 7 in the Amway Coaches and Associated Press polls, which was the highest finish since 2005.

 

The fourth-ranked Nittany Lions visit Iowa for the first time since 2012 Saturday at 7:30 p.m. on ABC. The game can also be heard on GoPSUsports.com and the Penn State Sports Network.

 

Single-game tickets for the 2017 Penn State football season presented by PSECU are available for three home games (Indiana, Rutgers, Nebraska). For information on joining the Nittany Lion Club and purchasing new 2018 season tickets, as well as club seating in Beaver Stadium, fans can visit www.PSUnrivaled.com, call 1-800-NITTANY weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. or visit the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office weekdays from 9 a.m-4:30 p.m. More than 9,000 new season tickets have been sold and the season ticket allotment for 2017 has been exhausted.

Ohio State Football Postgame Quotes

 

No. 8 Ohio State 38, Army West Point 7

Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017

Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

Attendance: 108,414

 

J.T. Barrett, Ohio State graduate quarterback

On breaking multiple Big Ten records throughout the years

“I honestly never really thought about breaking all of these records. I just wanted to come out here and win a lot of football games. I didn’t really picture this coming into Ohio State, but it’s been great with all.”

Parris Campbell, Ohio State junior wide receiver

On current involvement with team

“I don’t think I’m less involved; I just think it’s the nature of the game. It’s depends on what’s at stake and what the situation is. I think the coaches do a great job of calling plays.”

 

On Army joining the Buckeyes to sing Carmen Ohio

“It was really cool to have them stand behind us. It comes down to a respect thing. Knowing what they do for us – you go to sleep at night knowing guys like that are protecting our country, so it was incredible to share that moment with them.”

J.K. Dobbins, Ohio State freshman running back

On his freshman success out the gate

“To be honest, I knew I would get a good start, but I didn’t think it would be anything like this. I just feel like I can only continue to get better. My offensive line, my receivers, my tight ends – outstanding job blocking. It’s a team effort.”

K.J. Hill, Ohio State sophomore wide receiver

On success of running game

“They had to worry about us on the perimeter, so Mike Weber and JK Dobbins were able to gun up the middle, and it helped our running game out a lot.”

On initial offensive strategy

“Coming in, we had to get our momentum going early because of the style that Army plays. We wanted to go as fast as we could. Our tempo was quick the entire game and that’s what our main focus was.”

Terry McLaurin, Ohio State junior wide receiver

On young guys getting in the rotation

“In the wideout group, Trevon Grimes has really been pushing. As an older guy, I really try to push him because we need him to play. When Marcus [Baugh] isn’t in, we’re running more receivers. In the way we rotate, we need another guy to step up.”

Jeff Monken, Army head coach

On his assessment of the game.

“We lost to a really good football team. That was a talented, tough, physical football team. I’m incredibly proud of our team and the fact that we fought and put in tremendous effort all the way through. We just kept playing, playing as hard as we could. That’s what we ask our guys to do.”

On Ohio State using five defensive backs

“It’s not uncommon for teams that line up like Coach [Greg] Schiano did to put an extra defensive back in at outside linebacker as an overhang player. I think it adds more open field tacklers on the perimeter as we run a lot of pitch plays and toss plays out there on the edge. It gets defensive backs playing against wide receivers and running backs as opposed to linebackers.”

Ahmad Bradshaw, Army senior quarterback

On the momentum following their 99 yard scoring drive

“Absolutely sir, I thought we ran the ball very well. Up front I thought our offensive line blocked them really well, but like coach said they play really hard and are a very talented team and were able to win a lot of one on one battles.”

On his fumble in the third quarter

“Coach always harps on the fundamentals and my job is to get the ball out of the mesh and I didn’t do that before the B-back passed me so it was my fault. I have to pull the ball quickly so I can get it to the next guy. I caused the turnover because I didn’t play fundamentally sound.”
