With Penn State opening the football season in Dublin, Ireland, Nittany Lions staffers have been scrambling around the clock to prepare for the overseas trip.
On the field, if one thing is clear, it's that James Franklin and his coaches are trying to keep things as normal as possible.
The Nittany Lions are keeping practice times the same despite the time change, which is all part of maintaining a familiar routine.
"Each game week is the same week. It doesn't matter if we're at Michigan, at Alabama, in Ireland, in London. It doesn't matter. Our Monday is the same, our Tuesday is the same, our Wednesday is the same, our Thursday, and we're going to do everything we can to stick to that plan and that process," linebackers coach Brent Pry says.
