  • Report: Penn State Preparing for Texas A&M to Pursue James Franklin

He's led a resurgence over the last two years, winning the Big Ten championship last season and now has the Lions ranked No. 3 after a 6-0 start.

Per CBS Sports, Penn State is preparing for Texas A&M to make a run at James Franklin this offseason if the Aggies fire current coach Kevin Sumlin. Meanwhile, Franklin has a $2 million buyout with the Nittany Lions.

With the success that Penn State head coach James Franklin has experienced over the past 16 games, reports on what schools may be trying to woo him away from Happy Valley are bound to appear. With Saquon Barkley leading a vaunted offense, the Nittany Lions have scored at least 31 points in five of their six games.
