How a blocked field goal changed Penn State's season

The double thump of foot hitting ball and then ball hitting hand. A perfect bounce. A race for the end zone barely won.

A blocked field goal in the fourth quarter against Ohio State changed Penn State's season. The Nittany Lions have not lost since and Happy Valley is happier than it's been with its football team in the five years since a scandal shook the program and the school.

Winning might not cure everything, but it certainly makes it easier to shift the focus away from lawsuits , statues and how best to commemorate anniversaries . For the first time in the post-Paterno, post-scandal era, the Nittany Lions are championship contenders. No. 8 Penn State (10-2, No. 7 CFP) makes its first appearance in the Big Ten championship game Saturday.
