Video: Team awards O'Brien the game ball after the win
Good post game locker room footage here following Penn State's 34-7 win over Navy.
After noting that they're on the right path, and to use this momentum heading into their week 4 match up with Temple, the team awards the game ball to Coach O'Brien before breaking things down.

New uniforms at Tennessee Tech
Tennessee Tech will be wearing a fresh look for their match up with Oregon tomorrow.
The style of the uniforms are actually pretty smooth. The Golden Eagles that are used on the sleeves and down the side of the uniforms are defintely a nice, somewhat subtle, touch as the purple fades to white. And the helmets are said to be a throwback tribute to the 1972 conference championship team that rocked a similar style.
Tech and Oregon face off tomorrow at 3 and the game can be seen on the Pac 12 Network.
Stump Mitchell out at Southern?
This past off-season there was plenty of noise in the wind about Southern head coach Stump Mitchell returning to an NFL staff. Didn't happen; but there were a lot of questions in Baton Rouge.
Last night, Southern lost to Mississippi Valley State and is now 0-2. After the game, athletic director William Broussard said, "No decision [on making a change] at this time."
This morning Broussard issued a statement saying, "For the record, there was no meeting with coach Mitchell this morning to ask him to resign."
It's never a good thing with the AD has to even address these kinds of questions. Doesn't sound like a good situation. We'll keep you posted.
Interesting high school uniform
This uniform is making it's rounds on Twitter and creating quite the buzz.
The interesting combination comes from Delray Beach Atlantic high school (FL), and is one of the....well... more "interesting" uniform combinations that we've come across here at The Scoop.
On the other hand, the helmet they plan to wear doesn't look too bad.
Quality video from Western Kentucky
Well done video here from Western Kentucky using highlights from their 35-0 loss to Alabama last week.
Although they got shut out, Western Kentucky did end an impressive streak for Alabama. Coming into the game, the Crimson Tide had forced at least one three and out in 77 consectutive games, dating all the way back to 2006.
That streak came to an end against the Hilltoppers.
Alabama led the country in three and outs in two of the past three seasons, winning a national title in each of those seasons.
This week, the focus for the Hilltoppers has shifted to Kentucky, as you can see in the video. The two teams will face off in Lexington tomorrow night at 7 on ESPNU.
Keep an eye on these two sets when West Virginia plays tomorrow
Tomorrow at 4:30, West Virginia heads up to Maryland to take on James Madison. If you remember, back in 2010 James Madison upset Virginia Tech in week 2 before the Hokies went on to rattle off 11 straight wins and finish 11-3.
ESPN Stats and Information put together some interesting statistics on Mountaineer quarterback Geno Smith since 2011 and found that when they come out in pistol and two running back sets, they are most efficient.
In two running back formations, Smith has thrown 17 touchdowns to only 1 interception, and all but one of those touchdown passes came out of the shotgun.
Out of their pistol formations, Smith has thrown 18 touchdowns and only 2 picks.
Thats an impressive 35 touchdowns to only 3 interceptions out of the combined pistol and two back looks.
Keep an eye on those two groupings come tomorrow.
