Penn State rebounded from its tough loss at Michigan to beat Wisconsin at Beaver Stadium Saturday afternoon. As expected, it was a physical game, and the Nittany Lions got the best of the Badgers, 22-10. Why was the win so important? What were the keys to victory? What are PSU’s bowl scenarios now? We are about to discuss all of that and more.
Welcome to the podcast version of “The Nitwits” TV show, featuring Penn State beat veterans Mark Brennan of Lions 247 With Fight On State (me) and Neil Rudel of the Altoona Mirror. We are now in our 21st year of leading a weekly roundtable discussion of the Nittany Lions during the college football season. For folks who would like to listen to the show on the run, we offer it here in podcast format.
This week, the Nitwits are joined by former Nittany Lion quarterback Wally Richardson, who is now the director of the Penn State Football Letterman’s Club. They go into detail breaking down the Wisconsin game. The guys also look ahead to the Rutgers game with their score predictions.

OUR GUEST: Wally Richardson lettered as a QB for the Nittany Lions in 1992, ’94, ’95 and ’96. He was the starting QB in 1995 and ’96, and ranked 10th among the school’s all-time leading passers (4,419 yards) until Trace McSorley bumped him out of the top 10 last year. Richardson then played in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens (1997-98) and Atlanta Falcons (1999) before embarking on a career as an academic counselor and later being appointed director of the PSU Football Letterman’s Club.
