What a Trip

From our September/October 2014 issue: A sleepless night. Broken elevators. Pizza for breakfast. What better way to prepare for the toughest game of the year? Twenty years ago this fall, the Nittany Lions went to Illinois with an unblemished record and dreams of a national championship. They came home with memories of a farcical road trip and an unforgettable win.

Overwhelming Force

From our May/June 2015 issue: The most dominant program in college athletics offers no scholarships and competes in a sport most Americans don’t really understand. None of which bothers the women of the nine-time national champion Penn State rugby team. They’re too busy bulldozing all comers, and having a blast along the way.
