“Beau will be ready to go,” Franklin noted.

Allar exited Saturday’s win over Rutgers in the third quarter, one play after taking a hard hit on his throwing shoulder on a designed quarterback run.
While the sophomore quarterback exited the medical tent with his helmet in hand a few minutes later, Allar did not return to action against the Scarlet Knights and backup quarterback Beau Pribula helped Penn State seal the win, primarily on the ground.
In talking to the media at the post-game press conference Saturday, Franklin mentioned regarding Allar’s status, “I don’t see this being significant…but we will see.”
With Allar’s status now confirmed for Michigan State, Penn State should head to Detroit Friday full strength on an injury front in the quarterback room.
