  10/10/20 - RB Journey BrownrJr/2022, Penn State, 5-11, 215 (DS#2 RB) + More +

  Journey Brown is in unfamiliar territory. When the redshirt junior running back first arrived at Penn State in 2017, Saquon Barkley was putting the finishing touches on one of the most exciting careers ever by a Nittany Lion running back. Then, in 2018, it was Miles Sanders who led the Penn State running backs room with an All-Big Ten season. Even last year, Brown wasn't the featured back right away in a crowded rotation. Now, Brown is the oldest member of a position group that is made up of himself, two sophomores and two freshmen. And after bursting onto the scene at the end of 2019 by rushing for 593 yards total in the Nittany Lions' final five games, he knows his younger teammates will look to follow his lead this fall.

"I'm an old head and these young guys kind of look up to me," Brown said last week on a Zoom call with reporters during Penn State's virtual media days. "I got them calling me, texting me, asking me questions and stuff. And for me to be able to answer those questions, I got to know it myself and prepare for it myself." Brown - a former three-star recruit - went from a 44-yard season in 2018 to rushing for 890 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He capped off the year with a 202-yard performance in the Cotton Bowl against Memphis, breaking the Penn State record for most rushing yards in a bowl game. - Centre Times

  Penn State football could return sooner than most expect once the program gets the go-ahead from government and health officials that its safe to do so, head coach James Franklin said Wednesday on a teleconference with media. The NCAA's Football Oversight Committee has suggested a six-week period of practice before teams return to games, according to Stadium's Brett McMurphy. But Franklin believes that window could be shortened. Franklin said he could see a world where his team is ready to take the field for a game a month after it returns to practice.

"People forget, very quickly we forget, that when I played college football and a lot of people played college football, you weren't there all summer," Franklin said. "You were at home, working out on your own. You'd show up and you'd be in training camp for three weeks or a month before the season started and you went and played. I think you definitely can do it under six weeks. I think you can do it in a month. Because that's how it was always kind of run before." If Franklin's potential timeline was followed, that would mean his Nittany Lions would have to be back on campus Aug. 5 in order to play their season opener against Kent State on Sept. 5 as scheduled. - Centre Times

  Few players broke out in the second half of Penn State's 2019 season like Brown did. He closed his redshirt sophomore season out as the team's best running back and looks to be the clear-cut starter heading into his redshirt junior year. Brown has a unique blend of size, strength, speed and balance that will attract NFL teams, even in a world where his position has lost value. It's highly unlikely Brown becomes a surefire first-round pick because of the position he plays, but it's easy to see a world where he becomes a second-round pick. - Centre Times

  It's easy to pencil Journey Brown as Penn State's starting running back next season. The last time he took the field for the Nittany Lions he ran for 202 yards and two touchdowns on only 16 carries in their 53-39 Cotton Bowl win over Memphis to close out 2019. While Brown may have finished last season at the top of the depth chart, run game coordinator and running backs coach Ja'Juan Seider isn't ready to count anyone out of the races for touches. "I think (Brown and Noah Cain) are going to do a great job going forward," Seider said Tuesday morning in a teleconference with the media. "But be cautious. Don't count out Devyn Ford. ... I think he's a kid that you're going to see another whole level of Devyn going forward. ... I view all three of those guys as starters in my mind right now."

The trio of backs rushed for 1,627 yards and should see that number increase for a myriad of reasons. Cain and Ford should see improvement now that they've each and a year in the program, while Brown didn't hit his stride late into the season. "The last four or five games, and I know I'm biased, but I thought Journey Brown was playing as good as any running back in the country," Seider said. "He's got freakish athletic ability and strength that he's finally starting to tap into." Brown has shown the most production of the three backs, racking up 890 rushing yards to lead the team last year. He did so despite being the only back on the roster who was rated as a three-star running back out of high school, with the others ranking as four stars. - Centre Times

  Journey Brown ran for 202 yards with two long touchdowns, Garrett Taylor returned an interception 15 yards for a score after another big play by All-America linebacker Micah Parsons and No. 13 Penn State beat No. 15 Memphis 53-39 on Saturday in the highest-scoring Cotton Bowl ever. While Penn State (11-2, No. 10 CFP) gave up its most points and yards all season against the big-play Group of Five Tigers, Parsons was pulling down quarterback Brady White, who flipped the ball right into the hands of Taylor. That put the Nittany Lions up 45-36 in the final minute of the third quarter. American Athletic Conference champion Memphis (12-2, No. 17 CFP) played its first game under coach Ryan Silverfield. The offensive line coach was promoted when Mike Norvell left after four seasons to become Florida State's coach earlier this month.

White was 32-of-51 passing for 454 yards with two interceptions and no touchdowns. Patrick Taylor Jr. and Kenneth Gainwell both had rushing touchdowns for the Tigers, but the rest of their points came on a Cotton Bowl-record six field goals by Riley Patterson, including a record-long 51-yarder. The Tigers finished with 542 total yards, but White was sacked a season-high six times and didn't throw a touchdown for the first time since the season opener. Two of those sacks were by Parsons, who finished with 14 tackles. Freshman running back Noah Cain added 92 yards and two touchdowns rushing for Penn State, which won for the 30th time in its 50 bowl appearances. The Nittany Lions had 529 total yards. Brown got his 202 rushing yards on 16 carries, including a tackle-shredding 32-yard touchdown early and a 56-yard score when he went up the middle virtually untouched. - AP College Football

  Journey Brown ran for 103 yards with three touchdowns and No. 12 Penn State pulled away from Rutgers 27-6 on Saturday. Will Levis played quarterback for the Nittany Lions (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten, No. 10 CFP) in place of injured started Sean Clifford and added 108 rushing yards on 17 carries and a 42-yard touchdown pass to Jahan Dotson in the fourth quarter. Isaih Pacheco led Rutgers (2-10, 0-9 Big Ten) with 102 yards rushing on 18 carries and Johnny Langan completed 12 of 24 passes for 164 yards with 58 rushing yards. Penn State led 7-3 after a sleepy first half that featured six combined punts. The Nittany Lions took control of the game early in the third quarter.

Levis ripped off a 49-yard run on Penn State's first play of the half to set up an 18-yard touchdown run from Brown, who bounced off defenders for his second score of the day. Penn State led 13-3 after Rutgers blocked Jake Pinegar's extra point try. After Rutgers' Justin Davidovicz made a 38-yard field goal, Levis hooked up with Dotson, who spun around three defenders near the goal line to make it 20-6. Brown capped an 8-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run on Penn State's next possession. Penn State wasn't nearly as efficient in the first half when Rutgers jumped out to a 3-0 lead on a 29-yard field goal from Davidovicz. Penn State responded with a six-play, 76-yard scoring drive fueled by Levis' running. He racked up 48 yards before Brown plunged in from 2 to give Penn State a 7-3 lead. - Penn State/AP College Football

  Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi joked before the 100th meeting between the Panthers and 13th-ranked Penn State that the next time the rivals face off, he'll either be retired or "in a coffin." That's a long time to live with some curious decision-making that helped the Nittany Lions escape with a 17-10 win. Pitt opted to kick a field goal on fourth-and-goal at the Penn State 1 trailing by a touchdown with less than 4 minutes to go. Alex Kessman's 19-yard attempt clanked off the upright and the Nittany Lion defense later turned away Pitt's last-ditch possession to win their third straight in the series since it was renewed in 2016.

Journey Brown ran for 109 yards and a touchdown for Penn State (3-0) and Noah Cain's 13-yard third-quarter sprint to the end zone gave Penn State the lead for good. Sean Clifford completed 14 of 30 passes for 222 yards while spending most of the afternoon under heavy duress. Pitt's Kenny Pickett threw for a career-high 372 yards, but Penn State held firm when it mattered. The Panthers had first-and-goal at the Penn State 1 midway through the fourth quarter. Two passes and a run went nowhere, and Narduzzi opted to kick, despite trailing by seven. - AP College Football
