Penn State vs. Wisconsin: Nittany Lions To Share Holiday Together

Unlike most people this Thanksgiving, members of the Penn State football team won't be heading home to celebrate with friends and family. Instead, they'll remain in Happy Valley to prepare for their de facto Big Ten Leaders Division championship game against Wisconsin this coming Saturday in Madison.

Coach Tom Bradley said at his weekly press conference on Tuesday, however, that players and coaches will get to celebrate the holiday as a team.

"We have a Thanksgiving dinner planned for them," Bradley said. "I'm going to take them to a movie on Wednesday night. We'll see how that goes. I guess the NCAA said we're allowed to give them free popcorn and a coke, so that's a good start. We did rent out the whole theater so it'll just be us."

The coach said he has other activities planned in the absence of classes this week as well, though he noted he's going to try and keep the team schedule as close to normal as possible.

Taking a break to see "Immortals" starring Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto and Mickey Rourke, however, will be a welcomed distraction respite from the task of preparing for Penn State's biggest game of the season on Saturday.
