Not certain, but I've looked through nearly ALL the wolf spider species on Bug Guide (procrastinating on homework...), and this seems the closest match. Definitely wolf spider. Pretty confident of genus Hogna. Species could also be carolinensis, lenta, or helluo - all are in PA. That black triangle right behind its waist is pretty distinctive. I bet KarenL will know!

I think it's a wolf spider of some sort.
