Week two is here and it's on national TV against the turmoiled Penn State! The last time the Lions were in Charlottesville, in 2001, Virginia took care of business, 20-14. I don't think I really need to go over the backstory of this game, as you've kept up with Penn State all summer long. It's an important win for Virginia to get, just to keep the ship going straight. If the Hoos win, it means nothing. If the Hoos lose, it can either mean we're in for a long season, or it can mean that PSU has more fight than people expected, but most likely the former.

In case you missed it, Tiki's game preview is here and the folks over at Black Shoe Diaries answered some questions on Penn State for us right here.

I certainly don't want to be the "1" in a Penn State 1-65 record. Leave your thoughts here and Go HOOS!
