It's not even November and the No. That loss at Wisconsin last month dropped fifth-year coach Jim Harbaugh to on the road against ranked opponents. This is Penn State's annual "Whiteout" game, and the Nittany Lions are looking to build on their hard-earned win at Iowa last week and avenge last year's lopsided loss at Michigan.

Mike Gundy and Boone Pickens were involved in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to trumpet the grand opening of Boone Pickens Stadium.

Postgame As the final seconds of the game ticked away, a chant of "Big 12, Big 12, Big 12" cascaded from the stands down onto the field as the Cowboys rushed to join the student section in celebrating their win.
After the game, Gundy was asked if the win was a program changer.
His answer was telling: "I would like to think overall that we're a little bit beyond that," Gundy said. And I think the players start to believe we can play with anybody if we can play our best game.
