Penn State aiming to improve defense heading into fall

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Penn State players and coaches received their Big Ten championship rings at a picnic on Saturday, a ceremony that coach James Franklin hopes will finally mute talk of his team's sudden rise last fall.

"We're never going to talk about this Big Ten championship again," Franklin said after the team's annual intra-squad scrimmage. "We enjoyed it. We appreciated it. It was awesome. A lot of hard work went into it. Once they get the rings and walk out of the building, we're fully on to 2017 and we're not discussing those things again."

But certain elements from that 11-3 run will keep coming up as Penn State heads into the offseason.
