Penn State Preparing for Texas A&M to Pursue James Franklin

The Nittany Lions now rank as the No. 3 team in the nation in the AP Poll and are coming off a Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl appearance.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports that Penn State "are preparing" for Texas A&M to pursue HC James Franklin if Kevin Sumlin resigns or is let go. This year, Penn State is now ranked No. 3 in the country and could well be headed for a College Football Playoff berth.

But because of the way Texas A&M has played in recent weeks, the Aggies might not be getting rid of Sumlin this winter.

To translate: Dodd is hearing that the Nittany Lions are already bracing for the Aggies to try and hire away their fourth-year head coach, but only if Texas A&M fires its coach, who has his team off to a 4-2 start with a trip to Florida on deck this weekend. There's no guarantee that he gets fired-he's 48-23 in five-plus seasons in College Station-but still, A&M has finished 8-5 for three straight seasons, so if Sumlin can't get past eight wins, he could well get the axe. If Franklin is hired, he would return to his SEC roots.

Franklin guided the Nittany Lions to the Rose Bowl last season, and he was handsomely rewarded for doing so-in August, he signed a six-year contract extension worth almost $20 million.
