Michigan State Vs. Penn State: Eleven Seniors To Play Last Game For Nittany Lions

Saturday marks the final game in the collegiate careers of eleven Nittany Lions, including some very familiar names. The Pride of Bridgeville, Stefan Wisniewski, will lead the offensive line for the last time in Beaver Stadium, putting an end to a great career, one that will surely continue in the NFL.

In addition, all-time leading Penn State rusher Evan Royster, who eschewed the draft last year to come back for his senior season, will end a record-setting career Saturday against Michigan State. Royster passed Curt Warner earlier this season as the Nittany Lion with the most career rushing yards.

The best of the rest to be honored this Senior Day:

Wisniewski is one of 11 Penn State seniors scheduled to be recognized in pregame ceremonies, including offensive linemen Doug Klopacz and Lou Eliades, running back Evan Royster, wide receivers Brett Brackett and Graham Zug, defensive tackle Ollie Ogbu, linebackers Chris Colasanti and Bani Gbadyu, cornerback Shelton McCullough and kicker Collin Wagner.

While the Penn State faithful will certainly be sad to see these players go, the upside is that none of them leave any major holes on the team that can't quickly and at least adequately be filled.

Good luck with the rest of your careers, seniors!
