Penn State senior guard Ohrnberger overcomes a family crisis to help the Nittany Lions beat the Hoosiers.

Talk about perspective.

Less than a day after Penn State dropped a crushing 24-23 decision to Iowa last Saturday, Nittany Lion senior offensive guard Rich Ohrnberger received a call from his mother, Patricia.

Last Sunday, Ohrnberger's father, also named Rich, suffered a heart attack. When told of the news, the younger Ohrnberger immediately headed home to East Meadow, N.Y., to be with his family.

Ohrnberger talks about his crazy week, which ended with the Nittany Lions' 34-7 win over Indiana at Beaver Stadium Saturday, in the video file below.
