’24/7 College Football’ With Penn State Preview

Unlike Hard Knocks, the HBO documentary series that covers an NFL team as it prepares for the regular season, 24/7 College Football features four different college football teams, with each of the four installments detailing a single game week for one team.

Last week’s debut episode chronicled the Florida Gators’ preparation for the Towson Tigers, culminating in Florida’s 38-0 victory. Wednesday’s iteration will feature the Nittany Lions in the week leading up to their homecoming win over the Purdue Boilermakers on October 5.

“Obviously Penn State wouldn’t agree to do something like this if we weren’t completely comfortable with all the details and specifics of it,” head coach James Franklin said last week, according to The Morning Call. “So that was this thoroughly vetted on the front end and [we] had great discussions. And so far, they have been great partners.

“But yeah, I think you know Penn State. We are fairly conservative, and you know, we’re going to be very diligent on the front end of looking at those things.”

He added: “We’ve got just such a wonderful university here and program and history and traditions and obviously the community and the type of support that we get. I want to make sure that everybody in the United States knows how special this place is. And to be able to have somebody like HBO, that has tremendous expertise in doing this, to be able to peek behind the curtain and allow people maybe a more comprehensive review of how we do things, I think is important.”

Penn State pounded Purdue 35-7, improving to 2-0 in the Big Ten and 5-0 overall.

“You just kind of get numb to it after a while. It’s just like, ‘Oh there’s cameras,'” defensive tackle Robert Windsor said days before the win, according to the Centre Daily Times. “At first it’s kind of weird and you’re not yourself, but you learn to be yourself. It’s like they are there all the time.”

The series’ third episode, airing next week, will feature the Arizona State Sun Devils as they work toward a Pac-12 tilt with the Washington State Huskies. A week later, the finale will chronicle the Cougars’ preparation for another Pac-12 squad, the Colorado Buffaloes.

“For many years, we have been enamored with the storylines and unrivaled traditions of college football,” HBO Sports executive producer Rick Bernstein said in a press release, “and we’re excited for the opportunity to expand the 24/7 franchise into the realm of college sports.”
