Penn State Football: Nittany Lions Could Be Featured On HBO Per Report

Penn State football might be taking part in an HBO show similar to "Hard Knocks," if a Monday night report by is accurate.

According to the report, Penn State would join three other programs -- Arizona State, Alabama, and Washington State — as part of the HBO series airing later during the season. It's unclear what the broadcast would showcase and when that might take place, though the report indicated that Arizona State would be featured during its game against Washington State.

A Penn State spokesperson had the following to say about the report: “As we do with all opportunities we feel can enhance our program, we are exploring the prospect of working on this project with the appropriate officials from all parties involved.”

With so little known about the potential behind-the-scenes look, it's difficult to forecast which game or games might fit the bill. The Nittany Lions host Michigan this season as well as Pitt and a potentially rising Purdue program for Homecoming, among other games at Beaver Stadium.

This wouldn't be the first of its type for Penn State. The Nittany Lions were part of a preseason show produced by ESPN while Bill O'Brien was still in State College.
