Georgia State visits Penn State this week as a quid-pro-quo matter of scheduling. Three years ago, former Georgia State coach Trent Miles invited friend James Franklin and the Penn State coaching staff to work a summer football camp in Atlanta.
That caused quite a stir in the SEC, though Franklin didn’t seem to mind. It also produced this game, a one-time visit by Georgia State worth $1.2 million, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constiution.
Georgia State, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, is playing its eighth season of FBS football. The Panthers have played games like this before, even stretching Wisconsin’s nerves last year. The Badgers trailed 17-13 in the fourth quarter before scoring the game’s final 10 points to win.
Franklin made that known in Penn State’s locker room this week. Surely, the Lions also know that Georgia State lost its opener to FCS Tennessee State 17-10.But Shawn Elliott, Georgia State’s first-year head coach, said he’s not bringing his team to Penn State merely for experience and a paycheck. Asked what his team stands to gain from playing Penn State, Elliott said, “first and foremost is a win.”
“You’ll probably sit there and laugh about that scenario, but we’re coming up there to play a football game just like any other,” Elliott said. “… Win or lose, Penn State is going to know we came up there to play a football game, I can assure you that.”
