Penn State coach James Franklin writes thank-you note after beating Michigan

Penn State is 7-0, ranked No. 2 in the nation and is a leading candidate for the College Football Playoff.

On Saturday, a Beaver Stadium-record crowd watched Penn State rout Michigan, 42-13, in front of a White Out on ABC.

Now coach James Franklin is giving thanks to everyone for their work and support. Franklin’s message thanked everyone involved, from players to fans.

“Thanks to everyone who had a part in it, Players, Coaches, Fans, Lettermen, Community! #WeAre,” Franklin tweeted early Sunday morning.

Franklin is far from the only big name to rave about the impressive atmosphere Saturday night at Beaver Stadium. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit was clearly in awe of the Penn State fans, especially the students.

Herbstreit even tweeted out a video of Penn State fans singing during the game.

“What a scene last night at Penn State!!!!!” Herbstreit tweeted on Sunday.

Penn State has a huge game this upcoming Saturday at Ohio State. In last year’s meeting, the Nittany Lions shocked then-No. 2 Ohio State, 24-21, in a White Out. This year, Penn State is the team with the No. 2 ranking, though Ohio State isn’t far behind at No. 6.
