Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno addressed the Nittany Lion faithful Friday night in preparation of the team's season opener Saturday. The Nittany Lions host Indiana State at noon ET on BTN, one of five Week 1 games we'll have on our air. The legendary Paterno is back for his unprecedented 46th campaign at the helm of the Nittany Lions.  A season ago, Penn State struggled to a 7-6 record in its first year without star quarterback Daryll Clark. The Nittany Lions expect much better results in 2011. Watch now as Paterno fires up the Penn State crowd, like only Joe Paterno can.

Paterno, the Penn State head coach since 1966, became the first FBS coach to reach the 400-win milestone last season in a comeback win over Northwestern. Overall, he's 401-135-3, good enough for a 74 percent winning percentage.
