Penn State is playing LSU in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Florida. Orlando has had torential rains all this week making the playing field a quagmire of mud and water.
Anyone my age or older, having never played on artificial turf, knows the ugliness of playing in mud. It is never fun. The ball is wet so the quarterback can never get a good grip on it to pass. The receivers can't get a good grip on it to catch it, and the rest of the team spends their time sliding around in the goo.
Sounds like fun doesn't it?
Penn State finally scored with 1:54 left in the first quarter. LSU in now at the 10 at the start of the 2nd quarter. LSU is going for a field goal, and now the score is Penn State 7, LSU 3.
