No one has come forward to report officers using the TigerText messaging platform to conceal evidence, and allegations that they could “make no sense nor do they have any inherent logic,” according to a report released Friday, Dec. 7.

Today's Penn State football news headline feature more breakdowns and predictions for Saturday's big game and a "tone-deaf" Twitter graphic the Ohio State football account eventually removed. Saturday's Penn State-Ohio State matchup features the two highest-scoring offenses in the country. And if the past two meetings are any indication, this one could go down as an instant classic, writes David Regimbal for Eleven Warriors.
