There are very few things that elicit as much joy in this world as Mariah Carey's 1994 unequivocal hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Save, maybe an insane double overtime victory by a rival team to keep you in the playoff picture. Well, Penn State found themselves in the enviable position of both listening to Mariah Carey's 1994 unparalleled hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and getting the news that their Playoff hopes were still alive today, and boy was it joyous.
Now that Ohio State has won out, Penn State has a potential path to the Big 10 Championship game against Wisconsin—but only if and after they beat Michigan State today. (Halftime score of 12-10, Michigan State.) Regardless of the difficult road ahead for Penn State, it was reason enough for fans to celebrate, pre-kickoff, with a little bit of Mariah Carey's 1994 incontrovertibly wonderful hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You." -oooooooo-oooo, baby!
