Bill O’Brien came into sanction-ridden Penn State this year, understanding that it would truly be a coaching challenge of the greatest magnitude. Scholarship limits, recruiting limits and more. And the results so far under Bill O’Brien’s first full year as head coach seem to be doing quite well.

O’Brien led the Nittany Lions to victories in eight of their final 10 games, earning an 8-4 overall record and a 6-2 mark in the Big Ten, with the only losses coming to division winners Ohio State and Nebraska. In its final game, Penn State beat eventual Big Ten Champion Wisconsin, 24-21, in overtime. O’Brien’s eight wins are the most by a first-year Penn State coach in the 126 years of the program.
