With nearly all of Penn State's divisional opponents in the Big Ten East showing substantial improvement early in the 2021 season and a number of difficult road contests still awaiting the Nittany Lions, there look to be precious few breathers on the upcoming schedule. That makes this weekend's visit from the FCS Villanova Wildcats an important opportunity to sit starters early and get playing time for players down the depth chart. It also offers an opportunity to pause and reflect on an entertaining three-game opening stanza that has seen the Lions rocket up the rankings. Ben Jones, Penn State beat reporter for StateCollege.com, joins the show to reflect on covering a team that has pleasantly surprised many of even its most devoted fans on the way to the program's first-ever 3-0 start to feature two wins over ranked opponents.
