The Penn State football team will hit the road Tuesday for Ireland.

The Nittany Lions will meet with the media before taking off.

The focus has been on Central Florida for about the last week.

James Franklin and company have not only watched a ton of film, they've talked to a few people that know the Knights.

And coach Franklin says his guys do a lot of little extra things in order to know their opponents inside and out.

“But yeah we have a whole plan we got. We talked about it at all the caravan stops, and everything else about how we study. we talk to other coaches. We talk to Navy, we talked to Notre Dame. I think we talked about all these things and the preparation that's going into the trip to Ireland. But yeah we've done a lot of things, a lot of research," Franklin says.
