Clay Helton was asked tonight what beating UCLA and winning 5 of the last 6 games would mean for his future. “I’ve watched this team improve,” he said. “I’m proud of our coaches for the way they’ve developed young people and to watch them play.

USC could easily pay Franklin $8-10 million next season. I’m not saying he would take it but money is not the reason to stay at Penn State.
