Here Lies: Penn State's 2014-15 Season
It was a tragic end to an excellent season for the Nittany Lions. We were hoping to see them live past this opening tournament day, but they met their untimely season demise at the hands of Ohio State -- a squad they struggled with all season.
Ohio State has now bested PSU seven of the past 10 meetings and completed its third straight victory over the Nittany Lions.
But let's remember the good times of Penn State. The season that saw them improve on years past and a season that showed the nation they weren't at the Division I level by mistake. It was a year capped with a 18-15-4 record and a fourth-place finish in the Big Ten.
The Roar Zone powered the team through the season. At home they proved to be nearly unstoppable at 13-2-3. Pegula saw notable wins over Michigan State, Minnesota and a late-season sweep of Michigan.
While their season lies here, we know they will rise from the dead bigger and stronger next year.
