HEALTHY Parmesan White Wine Cream Sauce Recipe

Get a bowl full of creamy Alfredo pasta for less than 420 calories!

We've got a guit-free bowl of pasta and cheese! Just make our Creamy Parmesan White Wine Cheese Sauce with whole wheat noodles, peas, mushrooms and chicken for a mere 419 calories! Compare that to some restaurants' alfredo for 1500 calories! We used a bright and approachable pinot gris with veggie broth to replace the cream and butter. Then we serve up the healthiest and craveable alfredo you've tried.

Wine fraudster Rudy Kurniawan, 37, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail and ordered to pay $20m (£11.8m) for his role in selling millions of dollars worth of fake wine.

Mr Kurniawan used old bottles and faked labels to fool investors, including billionaire William Koch

high quality replica watches for men As an Indonesian national, Mr Kurniawan will be deported once his sentence is served. He has already spent two years in jail since being arrested in March of 2012.
Analysis: Michelle Fleury, New York Business Reporter
Rudy Kurniawan was rumbled selling fake vintage wines to fuel a lifestyle of fast cars and expensive art.
But we still don't know exactly how many bogus bottles he sold. And perhaps we never will.
Part of the problem is that many of his rich and famous clients kept quiet. Perhaps they were embarrassed.
Or maybe they were hoping to resell some of the wines they'd bought from him.
Only a handful of his victims ever stepped forward during his trial.
They included a billionaire (Bill Koch), a real estate mogul (Peter Fascitelli) and a California restaurateur (David Doyle).
'Extravagant purchases'
An avid collector himself, Kurniawan was once considered one of the best aficionados in the world.
In 2006 alone, it was believed he sold up to 12,000 bottles at auction.
But authorities were said to have found thousands of labels for fine Burgundy and Bordeaux wine along with full, unlabelled bottles in Kurniawan's home.
Prosecutors argued Kurniawan deserved a longer sentence because he flaunted his ill-gotten gains "with extravagant purchases of authentic wine, luxury cars, a Beverly Hills mansion, flights on private jets, designer watches and clothing, fine art and much more".

* - Per Game Statistics | All Statistics from 2013 Season

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - A number of firsts will take place when Penn State travels to Dublin, Ireland to face UCF in the Croke Park Classic on Saturday, Aug. 30 at 8:30 a.m. ET. It will be the beginning of the James Franklin era and mark the first international contest in Penn State's 128-year football history.
This will be the fourth meeting between the Nittany Lions and Knights on the football field, with Penn State looking to reverse last season's 34-31 loss at Beaver Stadium. Penn State claimed the first two on-field meetings with UCF in 2002 and 2004.
The Blue and White enter the 2014 season opener with seven returning starters on both offense and defense. Sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg will look to add to his impressive freshman campaign that saw him throw for 2,955 yards and 20 touchdowns. A talented running back corps returns in seniors Bill Belton and Zach Zwinak , along with sophomore Akeel Lynch , and a deep and athletic tight end corps will look to help a youthful, but gifted, wide receivers unit that will need to replace two-time Big Ten Receiver of the Year Allen Robinson , who was a second round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Senior linebacker Mike Hull will captain an experienced defense from the middle linebacker post after ranking second on the team with 78 tackles last season. Adrian Amos and Jordan Lucas return to lead the secondary, while C.J. Olaniyan and Deion Barnes are just two members of a talented and tenacious defensive front.
UCF also returns the bulk of its roster for 2014, but will have to replace quarterback Blake Bortles, who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and NFL-bound running back Storm Johnson and a trio of offensive linemen. The Knights posted a 12-1 overall mark in 2013 and defeated Baylor, 52-42, in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl to earn their first AP top-10 finish in school history (No. 10).
The Knights return a talented corps of wide receivers return, led by Ranell Hall, J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman. The trio combined for 143 catches, over 2,400 yards and 16 touchdowns. Running the offense will be redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who was named the starter midway through fall camp by head coach George O'Leary.
Penn State departs late Tuesday evening and returns Saturday evening. The Nittany Lions will practice at University College Dublin.
GAME ONE - NEWS AND NOTES
UCF Head Coach George O'Leary
George O'Leary is in his 18th season as a head coach and his 11th season as the leader of the UCF program. He owns a career record of 124-89 and is 72-56 as head coach of the Knights.
O'Leary was the head coach at Georgia Tech from 1994-2001, where he led the Yellow Jackets to five straight bowl game appearances. He took the head job at UCF in 2004. He helped Tech earn the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship in 1998.watches
Last season, O'Leary guided UCF to new heights with a school record 12 wins - seven coming away from Orlando - and a nine-game winning streak which is still active heading into 2014. UCF was undefeated in conference play for the first time (8-0) en route to the outright AAC title.best replica watches
The 2013 squad posted UCF's first two wins over top-10 teams (No. 8/6 Louisville and No. 6/5 Baylor) captured the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl with a 52-42 triumph over Big 12 champion Baylor. The Fiesta Bowl win helped O'Leary's program grab their first top-10 ranking by placing 10th in the final AP Top 25 Poll.swiss replica watches
Prior to joining the AAC, O'Leary helped UCF to the Conference USA East Division Championship four times. The Knights also won the Conference USA Championship Game twice (2007, 2010).best swiss replica watches
Scouting the Knights
UCF may have lost starting quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Storm Johnson, but they return 49 letterwinners and 15 starters (9 Defense, 6 Offense) from a squad that went 12-1 and won the Fiesta Bowl.swiss watches
The offense was hit hardest with departures after 2013, with Bortles, Johnson and a trio of offensive linemen off to the NFL, but a talented corps of wide receivers return, led by Ranell Hall, J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman. The trio combined for 143 catches, over 2,400 yards and 16 touchdowns.best replica watches
Sophomore William Stanback will lead the rushing attack in to 2014 after gaining 443 yards on 105 carries (4.2 ypc) and six scores.
Running the offense will be redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who was named the starter midway through fall camp by head coach George O'Leary. DiNovo hasn't thrown a pass for the Knights, but was the Scout Team Player of the Year in 2013 and the 2012 Tampa Bay Times Suncoast Player of the Year as a senior at East Lake High School.
The defense returns nearly all of the major players from last season's 12-1 squad, including the top two tackles on the squad in linebacker Terrance Plummer (110 tkls) and safety Clayton Geathers (100 tkls).
Placekicker and leading scorer Shawn Moffitt is back in 2014 and will look to build off of a season that saw him set a single season school record by hitting 91-percent of his field goal tries. He was 21-of-23 on field goals and hit all 49 of his extra point tries to total 112 points.
Last Meeting
The two teams met at Beaver Stadium for the third time in the short history of the series, but UCF's 34-31 victory over Penn State was not short on memorable moments.
Penn State trailed 21-10 at halftime and entered the fourth quarter behind 31-17 before mounting a comeback that fell just short.
Zach Zwinak piled up 147 all-purpose yards and scored three rushing touchdowns and quarterback Christian Hackenberg was 21-of-28 passing for 262 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn't enough in Penn State's first loss of the season.
Of Hackenberg's passing totals, 143 of those yards came on nine catches by Allen Robinson. The duo also connected on a touchdown with 2:51 left in the game to pull the score within a field goal at 34-31, but the Knights ran the clock out behind a strong rushing performance from Storm Johnson.
Johnson ended the game with 117 yards rushing, including a 58-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for three scores and totaled 288 passing yards.
First Time Travelers
Although many of the players on the Penn State football team have done their fair share of traveling, this will be the first time that a major portion of the squad will travel outside of North America. Approximately 85-percent of the players that comprise the Nittany Lions' roster will be making their first trip outside of North America when the team plane departs for Dublin, Ireland and the Croke Park Classic.
PSU-UCF Coaching Connections
Penn State offensive coordinator/tight ends coach John Donovan worked with UCF head coach George O'Leary for three years at Georgia Tech as an offensive graduate assistant from 1998-2000. Donovan also worked with former Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien while on O'Leary's staff at Georgia Tech.
During that time, the Yellow Jackets made three straight bowl appearances and claimed a share of the 1998 ACC championship with a 10-2 overall record.
Penn State head coach James Franklin and Donovan both worked with UCF offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Charlie Taaffe while at Maryland from 2001-04. Taaffe served as the OC/QB coach, while Franklin coached the Terrapins wide receivers. Donovan was the programs recruiting coordinator.
Josh Gattis will look across the field at two familiar faces, in UCF special teams coach Mike Buscemi and tight ends coach Allen Mogridge. While Gattis was an offensive graduate assistant and wide receivers coach at North Carolina in 2010 he worked with Buscemi (offensive quality control) and Mogridge (tight ends/recruiting coordinator).
Terry Smith also worked with Mogridge, with the two serving on the offensive staff at Temple in 2013. Smith coached the wide receivers and Mogridge tutored the offensive line for the Owls.

Across the Pond for Season-Opener
Penn State will play its first international game since the program's 1887 inception when it opens the season against UCF in the Croke Park Classic on August 30 in Dublin, Ireland. The contest will be played at Croke Park, the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and will have a capacity of 69,000 for the contest.
UCF also will be playing in its first international game. The Knights were 12-1 last season, defeating Baylor in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, and finishing No. 10 in the final Associated Press poll.
The Penn State-UCF contest will be the eighth American college football game held in Ireland. The last American football game hosted in Croke Park was in 1996 when Notre Dame played Navy. The Irish and Middies played in Dublin's Aviva Stadium to open the 2012 season.
Penn State will be the first Big Ten Conference team to play internationally since Michigan State and Wisconsin met in Tokyo in the 1993 regular-season finale.
2013 Coin Toss Commemorated Croke Park Classic
When Penn State hosted UCF at Beaver Stadium in 2012, officials from Ireland's Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and Croke Park Stadium attended the contest to continue their planning for the 2014 Croke Park Classic between the two schools.
Among the dignitaries visiting Happy Valley were Páraic Duffy, GAA Director General and Dan Rooney, the Pittsburgh Steelers' team chairman and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland. Duffy and Rooney participated in pregame the coin toss.
The winning team in the Croke Park Classic will earn the Dan Rooney Trophy. The Dan Rooney Trophy is a replica football made of bog yew and Pittsburgh steel. The yew comes from what remains of forests which grew six to seven thousand years ago and lie deep in the Irish midlands.
The steel is from Heinz Field, home of the National Football League's Pittsburgh Steelers.
College Football on the Emerald Isle
When Penn State and UCF land in at Dublin Airport, they will begin preparations for the eighth college football game ever played in Ireland.
This will mark the eighth overall college football game played in Ireland, with five of them taking place in Dublin (*), one in Galway (#) and one in Limerick (^).
This will be the second college football contest played in Croke Park Stadium. The first came in 1996 when Notre Dame defeated Navy, 54-37, in front of 38,651 fans. That game was called the Shamrock Classic.
Five of the eight games featured teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Two match-ups of Division III opponents and one between team's from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) have also been played on the Emerald Isle.

Hackenberg Looks to Build Off Strong Rookie Campaign
Quarterback Christian Hackenberg impressed everyone with his abilities and moxie during his freshman campaign in 2013. The second-year signal caller will look to build on his impressive rookie campaign when the season begins against UCF.
Hackenberg completed 231-of-392 passes (59 percent), for 2,955 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes in 12 starts last season.
He broke the Penn State freshman single game record for passing yards twice in 2013. He threw for 340 yards at Indiana on Oct. 5 after a 311-yard effort against Eastern Michigan on Sept. 7. Zack Mills twice threw for 280 yards (Ohio State & Southern Miss) during his freshman year in 2001.
His nine games with at least 200 yards broke Mills' freshman record of five from the 2001 season. He currently ranks tied for eighth with Todd Blackledge and Wally Richardson in career 200-yard passing games in career.
He is one of only four quarterbacks in PSU history to post multiple 300-plus yard passing games in career, ranking tied for second with Kerry Collins in school history with four such games. Hackenberg trails Matt McGloin (six) on the career 300-yard passing games list.
Hackenberg's 55 passing attempts at Indiana in 2013 marked just the fourth time in PSU history a signal caller amassed 50 passing attempts in a game. It broke Collins' school record of 54 in 1992 at BYU.
Eight of his 20 scoring strikes were 45 yards or longer, including a career-long 68 touchdown pass to Adam Breneman in the 2013 season finale at Wisconsin.
He ranked second in the Big Ten and is 35th in the nation in completions per game (19.25) and was third and 34th, respectively, in passing yards per game (2246.3).
Hackenberg has thrown for at least 250 yards in five of the team's 11 games, including three 300-yard efforts, and
He had 14 completions of 40-plus yards or longer in 2013, which tied for eighth nationally. That total was also tied for tops among freshman quarterbacks in the NCAA (Winston, FSU).
On the awards front, Hackenberg is a preseason candidate for the Maxwell and O'Brien Awards.
In 2013 he was named the Big Ten Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year, earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week five times and garnered Freshman All-American honors from Athlon Sports, Phil Steele's College Football and CollegeFootballNews.com.
Lions Backfield Primed for Success
When Penn State takes the field at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland the Nittany Lions will have one of the most formidable backfields in the Big Ten.
Among the components will be a pair of career 1,000-yard backs, a sophomore that averaged six yards per carry, the star of the 2014 Blue-White Game and a stable of highly touted rookies.
Seniors Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton headline the group, while sophomores Akeel Lynch and Cole Chiappialle had strong showings in the spring and fall.
They will also have four other experienced returnees and a rookie trio of Mark Allen , Nick Scott and Johnathan Thomas .
Belton, Lynch and Zwinak all posted 100-yard rushing games in 2013. The last time Penn State had three 100-yard rushers in the same season was during the 2007 season when senior Rodney Kinlaw , freshman Evan Royster and senior Austin Scott all delivered such games.
Zwinak enters the season just four yards shy of cracking the 2,000 career yard mark. The senior has 1,996 yards in his career to rank 18th on the all-time list. He also ranks tied for 10th in Penn State history with 11 100-yard rushing games.

Ficken Nears Record Books After Successful 2013 Season
There aren't many people who would have believed that Sam Ficken would be among the top kickers in Penn State history after a five-miss game at Virginia in 2012.
However, entering his senior season Ficken has already set two school records and is approaching rare company on a pair of scoring lists.
Ficken connected on a then-career-long 47-yard field goal in the second quarter against UCF to mark his 15th consecutive successful FG attempt, which is now the school standard. Ficken made his final 10 attempts of 2012 and then connected on his first five field goals in 2013 to break Craig Fayak's previous mark of 13 straight makes in 1992.
One of just 11 Nittany Lions to convert 30 career field goals, Ficken is just five successful tries away from moving into the top-10 on career field goals made. His 30 field goals trail only Chris Bahr's 35 from 1973-75 for 10th on the career list.
Ficken is just 20 points shy of pushing his name into the top-15 in school history in points scored. He has 171 points in his career, making 30 field goals and 81 extra points.
Ficken again wrote his name into the Penn State record books on Sept. 21 vs. Kent State when he converted a career-best 54-yard field goal. His effort was the longest field goal by a Penn State player in home game history and tied for fifth in the NCAA in 2012.
The 54-yard field goal also ranks tied for fourth on the career charts with Herb Menhardt (1979) and trails only three 55-yard conversions by Chris Bahr in 1975. The other four field goals all came on the road.

Penn State Claims Unprecedented 29th Lambert Trophy in 2013
Penn State captured an unprecedented 29th Lambert Trophy, symbolic of Eastern football supremacy, for the 2013 season. The Nittany Lions were honored March 27 at the Eastern College Football Awards Banquet, hosted by the ECAC, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Prior to 2013, Penn State's most recent Lambert Trophy selection had been in 2009, which was the 24th Lambert Trophy title captured under Coach Joe Paterno .
Eighteen institutions have captured the Lambert Meadowlands Trophy, but no four schools combined can match Penn State's 29 titles.
Established in 1936 by brothers Victor and Henry Lambert in memory of their father, August, the Lambert Trophy was first captured by Penn State in 1947 under Coach Bob Higgins. Coach Rip Engle guided Lambert Trophy winners in 1961, '64 and '65. The first of Paterno's Lambert titles came in 1967.
Penn State finished the 2013 season with a 31-24 victory over No. 14 Wisconsin, claiming its first on-field Top 15 win since beating No. 13 LSU in the 2010 Capital One Bowl.
Cappelletti's No. 22 To Be Retired
John Cappelletti , who won the Heisman Trophy in leading Penn State to a 12-0 record in 1973, will have his No. 22 jersey retired.
The announcement was made by Director of Athletics Dave Joyner during the Sept. 7, 2013 game against Eastern Michigan, as the 1973 team celebrated its 40th reunion.
Cappelletti is the first Penn State student-athlete to have his or her number retired.
The No. 22 jersey will be retired at the end of the career of redshirt sophomore running back Akeel Lynch , a request that was made by Cappelletti.
From Upper Darby, Pa., Cappelletti was a consensus first-team All-America running back in 1973 for Coach Joe Paterno and won the Maxwell Award, and the Walter Camp, ABC-TV and UPI Player-of-the-Year in addition to the Heisman.
A defensive back his first two years as a Nittany Lion, Cappelletti ran for 1,522 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior in 1973. His 1,522 yards remain No. 4 on the Penn State season list. His 2,639 career rushing yards rank No. 11 in Penn State history and he scored 29 career touchdowns.
Cappelletti posted 13 100-yard rushing games and strung together three consecutive 200-yard games in the final month of the 1973 season, topped by 220 yards in a win over North Carolina State. Cappelletti captured the nation's heart when he dedicated the Heisman Trophy to his younger brother, Joey, who would pass away from childhood leukemia. The story of Cappelletti's family and the 1973 season inspired the TV movie '"Something For Joey."
A first-round draft choice of the NFL's Los Angeles Rams, Cappelletti played 10 seasons in the NFL, six with the Rams and four with the San Diego Chargers.
Cappelletti was enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1993.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - A number of firsts will take place when Penn State travels to Dublin, Ireland to face UCF in the Croke Park Classic on Saturday, Aug. 30 at 8:30 a.m. ET. It will be the beginning of the James Franklin era and mark the first international contest in Penn State's 128-year football history.
This will be the fourth meeting between the Nittany Lions and Knights on the football field, with Penn State looking to reverse last season's 34-31 loss at Beaver Stadium. Penn State claimed the first two on-field meetings with UCF in 2002 and 2004.
The Blue and White enter the 2014 season opener with seven returning starters on both offense and defense. Sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg will look to add to his impressive freshman campaign that saw him throw for 2,955 yards and 20 touchdowns. A talented running back corps returns in seniors Bill Belton and Zach Zwinak , along with sophomore Akeel Lynch , and a deep and athletic tight end corps will look to help a youthful, but gifted, wide receivers unit that will need to replace two-time Big Ten Receiver of the Year Allen Robinson , who was a second round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Senior linebacker Mike Hull will captain an experienced defense from the middle linebacker post after ranking second on the team with 78 tackles last season. Adrian Amos and Jordan Lucas return to lead the secondary, while C.J. Olaniyan and Deion Barnes are just two members of a talented and tenacious defensive front.
UCF also returns the bulk of its roster for 2014, but will have to replace quarterback Blake Bortles, who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and NFL-bound running back Storm Johnson and a trio of offensive linemen. The Knights posted a 12-1 overall mark in 2013 and defeated Baylor, 52-42, in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl to earn their first AP top-10 finish in school history (No. 10).
The Knights return a talented corps of wide receivers return, led by Ranell Hall, J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman. The trio combined for 143 catches, over 2,400 yards and 16 touchdowns. Running the offense will be redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who was named the starter midway through fall camp by head coach George O'Leary.
Penn State departs late Tuesday evening and returns Saturday evening. The Nittany Lions will practice at University College Dublin.
GAME ONE - NEWS AND NOTES
UCF Head Coach George O'Leary
George O'Leary is in his 18th season as a head coach and his 11th season as the leader of the UCF program. He owns a career record of 124-89 and is 72-56 as head coach of the Knights.
O'Leary was the head coach at Georgia Tech from 1994-2001, where he led the Yellow Jackets to five straight bowl game appearances. He took the head job at UCF in 2004. He helped Tech earn the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship in 1998.watches
Last season, O'Leary guided UCF to new heights with a school record 12 wins - seven coming away from Orlando - and a nine-game winning streak which is still active heading into 2014. UCF was undefeated in conference play for the first time (8-0) en route to the outright AAC title.best replica watches
The 2013 squad posted UCF's first two wins over top-10 teams (No. 8/6 Louisville and No. 6/5 Baylor) captured the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl with a 52-42 triumph over Big 12 champion Baylor. The Fiesta Bowl win helped O'Leary's program grab their first top-10 ranking by placing 10th in the final AP Top 25 Poll.swiss replica watches
Prior to joining the AAC, O'Leary helped UCF to the Conference USA East Division Championship four times. The Knights also won the Conference USA Championship Game twice (2007, 2010).best swiss replica watches
Scouting the Knights
UCF may have lost starting quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Storm Johnson, but they return 49 letterwinners and 15 starters (9 Defense, 6 Offense) from a squad that went 12-1 and won the Fiesta Bowl.swiss watches
The offense was hit hardest with departures after 2013, with Bortles, Johnson and a trio of offensive linemen off to the NFL, but a talented corps of wide receivers return, led by Ranell Hall, J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman. The trio combined for 143 catches, over 2,400 yards and 16 touchdowns.best replica watches
Sophomore William Stanback will lead the rushing attack in to 2014 after gaining 443 yards on 105 carries (4.2 ypc) and six scores.
Running the offense will be redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who was named the starter midway through fall camp by head coach George O'Leary. DiNovo hasn't thrown a pass for the Knights, but was the Scout Team Player of the Year in 2013 and the 2012 Tampa Bay Times Suncoast Player of the Year as a senior at East Lake High School.
The defense returns nearly all of the major players from last season's 12-1 squad, including the top two tackles on the squad in linebacker Terrance Plummer (110 tkls) and safety Clayton Geathers (100 tkls).
Placekicker and leading scorer Shawn Moffitt is back in 2014 and will look to build off of a season that saw him set a single season school record by hitting 91-percent of his field goal tries. He was 21-of-23 on field goals and hit all 49 of his extra point tries to total 112 points.
Last Meeting
The two teams met at Beaver Stadium for the third time in the short history of the series, but UCF's 34-31 victory over Penn State was not short on memorable moments.
Penn State trailed 21-10 at halftime and entered the fourth quarter behind 31-17 before mounting a comeback that fell just short.
Zach Zwinak piled up 147 all-purpose yards and scored three rushing touchdowns and quarterback Christian Hackenberg was 21-of-28 passing for 262 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn't enough in Penn State's first loss of the season.
Of Hackenberg's passing totals, 143 of those yards came on nine catches by Allen Robinson. The duo also connected on a touchdown with 2:51 left in the game to pull the score within a field goal at 34-31, but the Knights ran the clock out behind a strong rushing performance from Storm Johnson.
Johnson ended the game with 117 yards rushing, including a 58-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for three scores and totaled 288 passing yards.
First Time Travelers
Although many of the players on the Penn State football team have done their fair share of traveling, this will be the first time that a major portion of the squad will travel outside of North America. Approximately 85-percent of the players that comprise the Nittany Lions' roster will be making their first trip outside of North America when the team plane departs for Dublin, Ireland and the Croke Park Classic.
PSU-UCF Coaching Connections
Penn State offensive coordinator/tight ends coach John Donovan worked with UCF head coach George O'Leary for three years at Georgia Tech as an offensive graduate assistant from 1998-2000. Donovan also worked with former Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien while on O'Leary's staff at Georgia Tech.
During that time, the Yellow Jackets made three straight bowl appearances and claimed a share of the 1998 ACC championship with a 10-2 overall record.
Penn State head coach James Franklin and Donovan both worked with UCF offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Charlie Taaffe while at Maryland from 2001-04. Taaffe served as the OC/QB coach, while Franklin coached the Terrapins wide receivers. Donovan was the programs recruiting coordinator.
Josh Gattis will look across the field at two familiar faces, in UCF special teams coach Mike Buscemi and tight ends coach Allen Mogridge. While Gattis was an offensive graduate assistant and wide receivers coach at North Carolina in 2010 he worked with Buscemi (offensive quality control) and Mogridge (tight ends/recruiting coordinator).
Terry Smith also worked with Mogridge, with the two serving on the offensive staff at Temple in 2013. Smith coached the wide receivers and Mogridge tutored the offensive line for the Owls.

Across the Pond for Season-Opener
Penn State will play its first international game since the program's 1887 inception when it opens the season against UCF in the Croke Park Classic on August 30 in Dublin, Ireland. The contest will be played at Croke Park, the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and will have a capacity of 69,000 for the contest.
UCF also will be playing in its first international game. The Knights were 12-1 last season, defeating Baylor in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, and finishing No. 10 in the final Associated Press poll.
The Penn State-UCF contest will be the eighth American college football game held in Ireland. The last American football game hosted in Croke Park was in 1996 when Notre Dame played Navy. The Irish and Middies played in Dublin's Aviva Stadium to open the 2012 season.
Penn State will be the first Big Ten Conference team to play internationally since Michigan State and Wisconsin met in Tokyo in the 1993 regular-season finale.
2013 Coin Toss Commemorated Croke Park Classic
When Penn State hosted UCF at Beaver Stadium in 2012, officials from Ireland's Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and Croke Park Stadium attended the contest to continue their planning for the 2014 Croke Park Classic between the two schools.
Among the dignitaries visiting Happy Valley were Páraic Duffy, GAA Director General and Dan Rooney, the Pittsburgh Steelers' team chairman and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland. Duffy and Rooney participated in pregame the coin toss.
The winning team in the Croke Park Classic will earn the Dan Rooney Trophy. The Dan Rooney Trophy is a replica football made of bog yew and Pittsburgh steel. The yew comes from what remains of forests which grew six to seven thousand years ago and lie deep in the Irish midlands.
The steel is from Heinz Field, home of the National Football League's Pittsburgh Steelers.

Lions Backfield Primed for Success
When Penn State takes the field at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland the Nittany Lions will have one of the most formidable backfields in the Big Ten.
Among the components will be a pair of career 1,000-yard backs, a sophomore that averaged six yards per carry, the star of the 2014 Blue-White Game and a stable of highly touted rookies.
Seniors Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton headline the group, while sophomores Akeel Lynch and Cole Chiappialle had strong showings in the spring and fall.
They will also have four other experienced returnees and a rookie trio of Mark Allen , Nick Scott and Johnathan Thomas .
Belton, Lynch and Zwinak all posted 100-yard rushing games in 2013. The last time Penn State had three 100-yard rushers in the same season was during the 2007 season when senior Rodney Kinlaw , freshman Evan Royster and senior Austin Scott all delivered such games.
Zwinak enters the season just four yards shy of cracking the 2,000 career yard mark. The senior has 1,996 yards in his career to rank 18th on the all-time list. He also ranks tied for 10th in Penn State history with 11 100-yard rushing games.
Belton became the 41st player in school history to rush for 1,000 career yards in 2013 and currently ranks 35th on the PSU charts with 1,131 rushing yards.
Belton and Lynch both posted 100-yards rushing against Eastern Michigan in 2013 to mark the 32nd time in program history Penn State had two 100-yard rushers in the same game. It was the first time since 2010 against Northwestern that two players topped the 100-yard rushing mark.

Ficken Nears Record Books After Successful 2013 Season
There aren't many people who would have believed that Sam Ficken would be among the top kickers in Penn State history after a five-miss game at Virginia in 2012.
However, entering his senior season Ficken has already set two school records and is approaching rare company on a pair of scoring lists.
Ficken connected on a then-career-long 47-yard field goal in the second quarter against UCF to mark his 15th consecutive successful FG attempt, which is now the school standard. Ficken made his final 10 attempts of 2012 and then connected on his first five field goals in 2013 to break Craig Fayak's previous mark of 13 straight makes in 1992.
One of just 11 Nittany Lions to convert 30 career field goals, Ficken is just five successful tries away from moving into the top-10 on career field goals made. His 30 field goals trail only Chris Bahr's 35 from 1973-75 for 10th on the career list.
Ficken is just 20 points shy of pushing his name into the top-15 in school history in points scored. He has 171 points in his career, making 30 field goals and 81 extra points.
Ficken again wrote his name into the Penn State record books on Sept. 21 vs. Kent State when he converted a career-best 54-yard field goal. His effort was the longest field goal by a Penn State player in home game history and tied for fifth in the NCAA in 2012.
The 54-yard field goal also ranks tied for fourth on the career charts with Herb Menhardt (1979) and trails only three 55-yard conversions by Chris Bahr in 1975. The other four field goals all came on the road.
Hull Among Preseason selections for Butkus Award
Senior linebacker Mike Hull was selected as one of 51 players named to the Butkus Award Preseason Watch List.

Penn State Claims Unprecedented 29th Lambert Trophy in 2013
Penn State captured an unprecedented 29th Lambert Trophy, symbolic of Eastern football supremacy, for the 2013 season. The Nittany Lions were honored March 27 at the Eastern College Football Awards Banquet, hosted by the ECAC, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Prior to 2013, Penn State's most recent Lambert Trophy selection had been in 2009, which was the 24th Lambert Trophy title captured under Coach Joe Paterno .
Eighteen institutions have captured the Lambert Meadowlands Trophy, but no four schools combined can match Penn State's 29 titles.
Established in 1936 by brothers Victor and Henry Lambert in memory of their father, August, the Lambert Trophy was first captured by Penn State in 1947 under Coach Bob Higgins. Coach Rip Engle guided Lambert Trophy winners in 1961, '64 and '65. The first of Paterno's Lambert titles came in 1967.
Penn State finished the 2013 season with a 31-24 victory over No. 14 Wisconsin, claiming its first on-field Top 15 win since beating No. 13 LSU in the 2010 Capital One Bowl.
Cappelletti's No. 22 To Be Retired
John Cappelletti , who won the Heisman Trophy in leading Penn State to a 12-0 record in 1973, will have his No. 22 jersey retired.
The announcement was made by Director of Athletics Dave Joyner during the Sept. 7, 2013 game against Eastern Michigan, as the 1973 team celebrated its 40th reunion.
Cappelletti is the first Penn State student-athlete to have his or her number retired.
The No. 22 jersey will be retired at the end of the career of redshirt sophomore running back Akeel Lynch , a request that was made by Cappelletti.
From Upper Darby, Pa., Cappelletti was a consensus first-team All-America running back in 1973 for Coach Joe Paterno and won the Maxwell Award, and the Walter Camp, ABC-TV and UPI Player-of-the-Year in addition to the Heisman.
A defensive back his first two years as a Nittany Lion, Cappelletti ran for 1,522 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior in 1973. His 1,522 yards remain No. 4 on the Penn State season list. His 2,639 career rushing yards rank No. 11 in Penn State history and he scored 29 career touchdowns.
Cappelletti posted 13 100-yard rushing games and strung together three consecutive 200-yard games in the final month of the 1973 season, topped by 220 yards in a win over North Carolina State. Cappelletti captured the nation's heart when he dedicated the Heisman Trophy to his younger brother, Joey, who would pass away from childhood leukemia. The story of Cappelletti's family and the 1973 season inspired the TV movie '"Something For Joey."
A first-round draft choice of the NFL's Los Angeles Rams, Cappelletti played 10 seasons in the NFL, six with the Rams and four with the San Diego Chargers.
Cappelletti was enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1993.

The meeting also will be the opening game of the Big Ten's 119th football season. The Nittany Lions have played Rutgers nine times in New Jersey, but the last six meetings came at Giants Stadium, most recently in 1995. Penn State has played at Rutgers in 1951, '53 and '55. The teams have met 24 times, with the first game in 1918 and the last meeting in 1995. From 1977-95, the Nittany Lions and Scarlet Knights played every season except in 1980 and '81.
The Terrapins will visit Beaver Stadium on Nov. 1 for the first time since a Sept. 26, 1992 contest. Penn State and Maryland have met 37 times, with the first game in 1917 and the last contest in 1993 in College Park. From 1960-93, the Nittany Lions and Terrapins played every year except 1976, `81 and `83.

When Penn State running back Bill Belton scored the game-winning touchdown in the fourth overtime against Michigan on Oct. 12, 2013, he capped a 10-point comeback in the final 6:35 and ended the longest game in the 118-year gridiron history of the Big Ten Conference.
The four extra frames were the longest Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) game during the 2013 season.
Penn State's previous longest game was its 26-23, three-overtime victory over Florida State in the 2006 FedEx Orange Bowl.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - A number of firsts will take place when Penn State travels to Dublin, Ireland to face UCF in the Croke Park Classic on Saturday, Aug. 30 at 8:30 a.m. ET. It will be the beginning of the James Franklin era and mark the first international contest in Penn State's 128-year football history.
This will be the fourth meeting between the Nittany Lions and Knights on the football field, with Penn State looking to reverse last season's 34-31 loss at Beaver Stadium. Penn State claimed the first two on-field meetings with UCF in 2002 and 2004.
The Blue and White enter the 2014 season opener with seven returning starters on both offense and defense. Sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg will look to add to his impressive freshman campaign that saw him throw for 2,955 yards and 20 touchdowns. A talented running back corps returns in seniors Bill Belton and Zach Zwinak , along with sophomore Akeel Lynch , and a deep and athletic tight end corps will look to help a youthful, but gifted, wide receivers unit that will need to replace two-time Big Ten Receiver of the Year Allen Robinson , who was a second round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Senior linebacker Mike Hull will captain an experienced defense from the middle linebacker post after ranking second on the team with 78 tackles last season. Adrian Amos and Jordan Lucas return to lead the secondary, while C.J. Olaniyan and Deion Barnes are just two members of a talented and tenacious defensive front.
UCF also returns the bulk of its roster for 2014, but will have to replace quarterback Blake Bortles, who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and NFL-bound running back Storm Johnson and a trio of offensive linemen. The Knights posted a 12-1 overall mark in 2013 and defeated Baylor, 52-42, in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl to earn their first AP top-10 finish in school history (No. 10).
The Knights return a talented corps of wide receivers return, led by Ranell Hall, J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman. The trio combined for 143 catches, over 2,400 yards and 16 touchdowns. Running the offense will be redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who was named the starter midway through fall camp by head coach George O'Leary.
Penn State departs late Tuesday evening and returns Saturday evening. The Nittany Lions will practice at University College Dublin.
GAME ONE - NEWS AND NOTES
UCF Head Coach George O'Leary
George O'Leary is in his 18th season as a head coach and his 11th season as the leader of the UCF program. He owns a career record of 124-89 and is 72-56 as head coach of the Knights.
O'Leary was the head coach at Georgia Tech from 1994-2001, where he led the Yellow Jackets to five straight bowl game appearances. He took the head job at UCF in 2004. He helped Tech earn the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship in 1998.watches
Last season, O'Leary guided UCF to new heights with a school record 12 wins - seven coming away from Orlando - and a nine-game winning streak which is still active heading into 2014. UCF was undefeated in conference play for the first time (8-0) en route to the outright AAC title.high quality swiss replica watches
The 2013 squad posted UCF's first two wins over top-10 teams (No. 8/6 Louisville and No. 6/5 Baylor) captured the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl with a 52-42 triumph over Big 12 champion Baylor. The Fiesta Bowl win helped O'Leary's program grab their first top-10 ranking by placing 10th in the final AP Top 25 Poll.copy watches
Prior to joining the AAC, O'Leary helped UCF to the Conference USA East Division Championship four times. The Knights also won the Conference USA Championship Game twice (2007, 2010).cheap watches
Scouting the Knights
UCF may have lost starting quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Storm Johnson, but they return 49 letterwinners and 15 starters (9 Defense, 6 Offense) from a squad that went 12-1 and won the Fiesta Bowl.best swiss replica watches
The offense was hit hardest with departures after 2013, with Bortles, Johnson and a trio of offensive linemen off to the NFL, but a talented corps of wide receivers return, led by Ranell Hall, J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman. The trio combined for 143 catches, over 2,400 yards and 16 touchdowns.fake watches
Sophomore William Stanback will lead the rushing attack in to 2014 after gaining 443 yards on 105 carries (4.2 ypc) and six scores.
Running the offense will be redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who was named the starter midway through fall camp by head coach George O'Leary. DiNovo hasn't thrown a pass for the Knights, but was the Scout Team Player of the Year in 2013 and the 2012 Tampa Bay Times Suncoast Player of the Year as a senior at East Lake High School.
The defense returns nearly all of the major players from last season's 12-1 squad, including the top two tackles on the squad in linebacker Terrance Plummer (110 tkls) and safety Clayton Geathers (100 tkls).
Placekicker and leading scorer Shawn Moffitt is back in 2014 and will look to build off of a season that saw him set a single season school record by hitting 91-percent of his field goal tries. He was 21-of-23 on field goals and hit all 49 of his extra point tries to total 112 points.
Last Meeting
The two teams met at Beaver Stadium for the third time in the short history of the series, but UCF's 34-31 victory over Penn State was not short on memorable moments.
Penn State trailed 21-10 at halftime and entered the fourth quarter behind 31-17 before mounting a comeback that fell just short.
Zach Zwinak piled up 147 all-purpose yards and scored three rushing touchdowns and quarterback Christian Hackenberg was 21-of-28 passing for 262 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn't enough in Penn State's first loss of the season.
Of Hackenberg's passing totals, 143 of those yards came on nine catches by Allen Robinson. The duo also connected on a touchdown with 2:51 left in the game to pull the score within a field goal at 34-31, but the Knights ran the clock out behind a strong rushing performance from Storm Johnson.
Johnson ended the game with 117 yards rushing, including a 58-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for three scores and totaled 288 passing yards.
First Time Travelers
Although many of the players on the Penn State football team have done their fair share of traveling, this will be the first time that a major portion of the squad will travel outside of North America. Approximately 85-percent of the players that comprise the Nittany Lions' roster will be making their first trip outside of North America when the team plane departs for Dublin, Ireland and the Croke Park Classic.
PSU-UCF Coaching Connections
Penn State offensive coordinator/tight ends coach John Donovan worked with UCF head coach George O'Leary for three years at Georgia Tech as an offensive graduate assistant from 1998-2000. Donovan also worked with former Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien while on O'Leary's staff at Georgia Tech.
During that time, the Yellow Jackets made three straight bowl appearances and claimed a share of the 1998 ACC championship with a 10-2 overall record.
Penn State head coach James Franklin and Donovan both worked with UCF offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Charlie Taaffe while at Maryland from 2001-04. Taaffe served as the OC/QB coach, while Franklin coached the Terrapins wide receivers. Donovan was the programs recruiting coordinator.
Josh Gattis will look across the field at two familiar faces, in UCF special teams coach Mike Buscemi and tight ends coach Allen Mogridge. While Gattis was an offensive graduate assistant and wide receivers coach at North Carolina in 2010 he worked with Buscemi (offensive quality control) and Mogridge (tight ends/recruiting coordinator).
Terry Smith also worked with Mogridge, with the two serving on the offensive staff at Temple in 2013. Smith coached the wide receivers and Mogridge tutored the offensive line for the Owls.

Across the Pond for Season-Opener
Penn State will play its first international game since the program's 1887 inception when it opens the season against UCF in the Croke Park Classic on August 30 in Dublin, Ireland. The contest will be played at Croke Park, the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and will have a capacity of 69,000 for the contest.
UCF also will be playing in its first international game. The Knights were 12-1 last season, defeating Baylor in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, and finishing No. 10 in the final Associated Press poll.
The Penn State-UCF contest will be the eighth American college football game held in Ireland. The last American football game hosted in Croke Park was in 1996 when Notre Dame played Navy. The Irish and Middies played in Dublin's Aviva Stadium to open the 2012 season.
Penn State will be the first Big Ten Conference team to play internationally since Michigan State and Wisconsin met in Tokyo in the 1993 regular-season finale.
2013 Coin Toss Commemorated Croke Park Classic
When Penn State hosted UCF at Beaver Stadium in 2012, officials from Ireland's Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and Croke Park Stadium attended the contest to continue their planning for the 2014 Croke Park Classic between the two schools.
Among the dignitaries visiting Happy Valley were Páraic Duffy, GAA Director General and Dan Rooney, the Pittsburgh Steelers' team chairman and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland. Duffy and Rooney participated in pregame the coin toss.
The winning team in the Croke Park Classic will earn the Dan Rooney Trophy. The Dan Rooney Trophy is a replica football made of bog yew and Pittsburgh steel. The yew comes from what remains of forests which grew six to seven thousand years ago and lie deep in the Irish midlands.
The steel is from Heinz Field, home of the National Football League's Pittsburgh Steelers.
College Football on the Emerald Isle
When Penn State and UCF land in at Dublin Airport, they will begin preparations for the eighth college football game ever played in Ireland.
This will mark the eighth overall college football game played in Ireland, with five of them taking place in Dublin (*), one in Galway (#) and one in Limerick (^).
This will be the second college football contest played in Croke Park Stadium. The first came in 1996 when Notre Dame defeated Navy, 54-37, in front of 38,651 fans. That game was called the Shamrock Classic.
Five of the eight games featured teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Two match-ups of Division III opponents and one between team's from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) have also been played on the Emerald Isle.

Belton, Zwinak Each Over 1,000 Career Yards Entering 2014
Seniors Bill Belton and Zach Zwinak both enter the 2014 campaign among the elite runners in Penn State history. The duo has 14 combined 100-yard rushing efforts and over 3,000-yards rushing combined over the last three seasons.
Only 41 players in Penn State history have totaled 1,000 career rushing yards. Zwinak (1,996) and Belton (1.131) are both among that group.
Zwinak enters the season just four yards shy of becoming the 18th player in school history to eclipse the 2,000-yard barrier in a career.

The Nittany Lions have lost the services of 19 letterwinners -- 13 on offense, five on defense and one specialist.
Hackenberg Looks to Build Off Strong Rookie Campaign
Quarterback Christian Hackenberg impressed everyone with his abilities and moxie during his freshman campaign in 2013. The second-year signal caller will look to build on his impressive rookie campaign when the season begins against UCF.
Hackenberg completed 231-of-392 passes (59 percent), for 2,955 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes in 12 starts last season.
He broke the Penn State freshman single game record for passing yards twice in 2013. He threw for 340 yards at Indiana on Oct. 5 after a 311-yard effort against Eastern Michigan on Sept. 7. Zack Mills twice threw for 280 yards (Ohio State & Southern Miss) during his freshman year in 2001.
His nine games with at least 200 yards broke Mills' freshman record of five from the 2001 season. He currently ranks tied for eighth with Todd Blackledge and Wally Richardson in career 200-yard passing games in career.
He is one of only four quarterbacks in PSU history to post multiple 300-plus yard passing games in career, ranking tied for second with Kerry Collins in school history with four such games. Hackenberg trails Matt McGloin (six) on the career 300-yard passing games list.
Hackenberg's 55 passing attempts at Indiana in 2013 marked just the fourth time in PSU history a signal caller amassed 50 passing attempts in a game. It broke Collins' school record of 54 in 1992 at BYU.
Eight of his 20 scoring strikes were 45 yards or longer, including a career-long 68 touchdown pass to Adam Breneman in the 2013 season finale at Wisconsin.
He ranked second in the Big Ten and is 35th in the nation in completions per game (19.25) and was third and 34th, respectively, in passing yards per game (2246.3).
Hackenberg has thrown for at least 250 yards in five of the team's 11 games, including three 300-yard efforts, and
He had 14 completions of 40-plus yards or longer in 2013, which tied for eighth nationally. That total was also tied for tops among freshman quarterbacks in the NCAA (Winston, FSU).
On the awards front, Hackenberg is a preseason candidate for the Maxwell and O'Brien Awards.
In 2013 he was named the Big Ten Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year, earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week five times and garnered Freshman All-American honors from Athlon Sports, Phil Steele's College Football and CollegeFootballNews.com.
Lions Backfield Primed for Success
When Penn State takes the field at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland the Nittany Lions will have one of the most formidable backfields in the Big Ten.
Among the components will be a pair of career 1,000-yard backs, a sophomore that averaged six yards per carry, the star of the 2014 Blue-White Game and a stable of highly touted rookies.
Seniors Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton headline the group, while sophomores Akeel Lynch and Cole Chiappialle had strong showings in the spring and fall.
They will also have four other experienced returnees and a rookie trio of Mark Allen , Nick Scott and Johnathan Thomas .
Belton, Lynch and Zwinak all posted 100-yard rushing games in 2013. The last time Penn State had three 100-yard rushers in the same season was during the 2007 season when senior Rodney Kinlaw , freshman Evan Royster and senior Austin Scott all delivered such games.
Zwinak enters the season just four yards shy of cracking the 2,000 career yard mark. The senior has 1,996 yards in his career to rank 18th on the all-time list. He also ranks tied for 10th in Penn State history with 11 100-yard rushing games.
Belton became the 41st player in school history to rush for 1,000 career yards in 2013 and currently ranks 35th on the PSU charts with 1,131 rushing yards.
Belton and Lynch both posted 100-yards rushing against Eastern Michigan in 2013 to mark the 32nd time in program history Penn State had two 100-yard rushers in the same game. It was the first time since 2010 against Northwestern that two players topped the 100-yard rushing mark.

Since starting Big Ten Conference competition in 1993, the Nittany Lion football team has had 29 Academic All-Americans®, 23 of whom earned first-team honors.
Ficken Nears Record Books After Successful 2013 Season
There aren't many people who would have believed that Sam Ficken would be among the top kickers in Penn State history after a five-miss game at Virginia in 2012.
However, entering his senior season Ficken has already set two school records and is approaching rare company on a pair of scoring lists.
Ficken connected on a then-career-long 47-yard field goal in the second quarter against UCF to mark his 15th consecutive successful FG attempt, which is now the school standard. Ficken made his final 10 attempts of 2012 and then connected on his first five field goals in 2013 to break Craig Fayak's previous mark of 13 straight makes in 1992.
One of just 11 Nittany Lions to convert 30 career field goals, Ficken is just five successful tries away from moving into the top-10 on career field goals made. His 30 field goals trail only Chris Bahr's 35 from 1973-75 for 10th on the career list.
Ficken is just 20 points shy of pushing his name into the top-15 in school history in points scored. He has 171 points in his career, making 30 field goals and 81 extra points.
Ficken again wrote his name into the Penn State record books on Sept. 21 vs. Kent State when he converted a career-best 54-yard field goal. His effort was the longest field goal by a Penn State player in home game history and tied for fifth in the NCAA in 2012.
The 54-yard field goal also ranks tied for fourth on the career charts with Herb Menhardt (1979) and trails only three 55-yard conversions by Chris Bahr in 1975. The other four field goals all came on the road.
Hull Among Preseason selections for Butkus Award
Senior linebacker Mike Hull was selected as one of 51 players named to the Butkus Award Preseason Watch List.
Presented annually to the nation's top linebacker since 1985, "Linebacker U." All-Americans LaVar Arrington (1999) and Paul Posluszny (2005) are former winners of the Butkus Award.
Hull was second on the team with 78 tackles (44 solo) last year despite missing two full games and most of two others due to injury. He added 4.5 tackles for loss, 0.5 sacks, one forced and one recovered fumble.

Penn State Claims Unprecedented 29th Lambert Trophy in 2013
Penn State captured an unprecedented 29th Lambert Trophy, symbolic of Eastern football supremacy, for the 2013 season. The Nittany Lions were honored March 27 at the Eastern College Football Awards Banquet, hosted by the ECAC, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Prior to 2013, Penn State's most recent Lambert Trophy selection had been in 2009, which was the 24th Lambert Trophy title captured under Coach Joe Paterno .
Eighteen institutions have captured the Lambert Meadowlands Trophy, but no four schools combined can match Penn State's 29 titles.
Established in 1936 by brothers Victor and Henry Lambert in memory of their father, August, the Lambert Trophy was first captured by Penn State in 1947 under Coach Bob Higgins. Coach Rip Engle guided Lambert Trophy winners in 1961, '64 and '65. The first of Paterno's Lambert titles came in 1967.
Penn State finished the 2013 season with a 31-24 victory over No. 14 Wisconsin, claiming its first on-field Top 15 win since beating No. 13 LSU in the 2010 Capital One Bowl.
Cappelletti's No. 22 To Be Retired
John Cappelletti , who won the Heisman Trophy in leading Penn State to a 12-0 record in 1973, will have his No. 22 jersey retired.
The announcement was made by Director of Athletics Dave Joyner during the Sept. 7, 2013 game against Eastern Michigan, as the 1973 team celebrated its 40th reunion.
Cappelletti is the first Penn State student-athlete to have his or her number retired.
The No. 22 jersey will be retired at the end of the career of redshirt sophomore running back Akeel Lynch , a request that was made by Cappelletti.
From Upper Darby, Pa., Cappelletti was a consensus first-team All-America running back in 1973 for Coach Joe Paterno and won the Maxwell Award, and the Walter Camp, ABC-TV and UPI Player-of-the-Year in addition to the Heisman.
A defensive back his first two years as a Nittany Lion, Cappelletti ran for 1,522 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior in 1973. His 1,522 yards remain No. 4 on the Penn State season list. His 2,639 career rushing yards rank No. 11 in Penn State history and he scored 29 career touchdowns.
Cappelletti posted 13 100-yard rushing games and strung together three consecutive 200-yard games in the final month of the 1973 season, topped by 220 yards in a win over North Carolina State. Cappelletti captured the nation's heart when he dedicated the Heisman Trophy to his younger brother, Joey, who would pass away from childhood leukemia. The story of Cappelletti's family and the 1973 season inspired the TV movie '"Something For Joey."
A first-round draft choice of the NFL's Los Angeles Rams, Cappelletti played 10 seasons in the NFL, six with the Rams and four with the San Diego Chargers.
Cappelletti was enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1993.
Nine Game Big Ten Slate in 2016
Big Ten teams will play eight conference games from 2013-15, with a nine-game conference schedule starting in 2016.
The Nittany Lions will play their six East Division rivals and three West Division teams that rotate starting in 2016.
Penn State and all East Division teams will have five Big Ten home games in 2016 and in even-numbered years thereafter.
Penn State Plays Record Three Home Overtime Games in 2013
The Beaver Stadium faithful got their money's worth and more during the 2013 Big Ten schedule, as Penn State became the first team to play three conference overtime home games in one season.
The Nittany Lions joined the 2012 Wisconsin squad as the only two Big Ten teams to ever play three overtime games in one season, with the Badgers playing two overtime games at home and one on the road (at Penn State).
Four of Penn State's last five Big Ten home games have gone into overtime; three in 2013 and the 2012 season-finale with Wisconsin.
Penn State's previous high for overtime games in a season was two during the 2002 campaign.
Maryland, Rutgers Enter Big Ten; East-West Division Alignments Begins
A pair of old Penn State rivals, Maryland and Rutgers, will become members of the Big Ten on July 1, 2014 and join the Nittany Lions in the conference's East Division starting this season.
The Big Ten East Division will consist of Penn State, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Rutgers. The West Division will include Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin. Teams in the same division will play each other annually.
Penn State will provide the opposition for the Scarlet Knights' first Big Ten game, on Sept. 13, 2014 in Piscataway, N.J. The meeting also will be the opening game of the Big Ten's 119th football season. The Nittany Lions have played Rutgers nine times in New Jersey, but the last six meetings came at Giants Stadium, most recently in 1995. Penn State has played at Rutgers in 1951, '53 and '55. The teams have met 24 times, with the first game in 1918 and the last meeting in 1995. From 1977-95, the Nittany Lions and Scarlet Knights played every season except in 1980 and '81.
The Terrapins will visit Beaver Stadium on Nov. 1 for the first time since a Sept. 26, 1992 contest. Penn State and Maryland have met 37 times, with the first game in 1917 and the last contest in 1993 in College Park. From 1960-93, the Nittany Lions and Terrapins played every year except 1976, `81 and `83.
The Nittany Lions and Spartans will end the 2014-16 campaigns against each other as they did from 1993-2010 in the battle for the Land Grant Trophy. In 2017, Penn State will visit Maryland in the regular-season finale.
