(State College) -- Penn State will wrap up the 2013 football season on the road this afternoon against the 14th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers in Madison.

Coach Bill O'Brien stresses he's focused on stopping a powerful Wisconsin team that's averaging nearly 300 rushing yards per game.

But when asked about the program's future, he says recruiting has gone well and he feels good about where it's headed.

"I think our program, with the two year sanctions that we've been under and things like that with the limited amount of guys we could offer and guy that's left the program, I think our program stands on pretty solid ground right now," O'Brien explained at his weekly news conference.

The Nittany Lions enter game with a 6-5 record. But, this is the second consecutive year they will not be eligible for the postseason due to NCAA sanctions.

Penn State and Wisconsin are meeting in the regular season finale for the third straight year. Kickoff is set for 3:30.
