Pence's Quick Thoughts

Is Penn State better than Bryant?  Yep. 

******

Penn State hosts BC for the second consecutive year in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, in what has become known as the "Flaming Bus 500."

Penn State takes on a young Boston College team (2-5) at the BJC tonight at 9:15pm. The Nittany Lions faced Steve Donahue's squad in last year's Big Ten/ACC Challenge, beating the Eagles on their own floor 62-54. This is Penn State's 12th Challenge appearance all-time, and they have won four of their last five in this competition.

If Penn State, who just defeated a decent Bucknell team is in for a rough season without Tim Frazier, then what does a healthy BC losing to Bryant University say about them? While the Eagles have defeated a major-conference team in Auburn (which is grasping at straws, to be honest), Donahue's third go-round appears to be a non-starter. However, that isn't to say the Eagles are completely devoid of talent.
