Penn State fans test college football gods with Alabama chant during Michigan win
The Nittany Lions want the Crimson Tide after dismantling the Wolverines
The glow of No. 2 Penn State's 42-13 win over Michigan is still hanging over Happy Valley, Nittany Lions fans could not even wait until the end of the game to demand more. During Saturday's night's game, Onward State captured a video of Penn State fans chanting -- what else -- "We want Bama!"
Alabama and Penn State are ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in the AP Top 25, and that doesn't figure to change when Sunday's new rankings are released. But just because those two programs are considered the top two in the nation doesn't mean they'll get a chance to meet. Penn State's next game, in fact, is at Ohio State. The line for that game should be a coin flip. There might not be a playoff appearance at all for the Nittany Lions without a win in Columbus, Ohio, next Saturday afternoon.
So compare the "We want Bama!" chants to Penn State coach James Franklin, who (not so earnestly) doesn't even seem to know he's coaching against the Buckeyes in Week 9.

All of this is to say: Enjoy the journey.
