Penn State football gets a late afternoon kickoff for senior day

13 November 2017

McSorley threw for two touchdowns, ran for another and set up a pair of Saquon Barkley touchdowns with his arm Saturday to lift the 17-ranked Nittany Lions to a 35-6 victory over Rutgers before a homecoming crowd of 107,531 at Beaver Stadium.

"Their skill players were the difference in the game, including him", Rutgers coach Chris Ash said.

Worst tackle (s): Penn State missed several early, allowing Rutgers to control the clock in the first quarter (10:35-4:25). It will be a tall order for the Scarlet Knights.

Robert Martin led Rutgers with 71 yards on 11 carries. Quarterback Gio Rescigno completed only seven of 20 passes for 43 yards.

The Blue Devils played without coach Donyell Marshall and assistant Anthony Anderson, both of whom were suspended for the first two games in what school officials called a "personal matter". "Obviously I'm aware of what teams are going to try and do and teams are going to try to take away our run game and take away our backs".

After missing a bunch of tackles in the run game, Penn State finally got itself into a favorable position. Franklin didn't elaborate and didn't answer a reporter's question, walking out of the media room when asked whether Bowen would return.

Receiver Janarion Grant also was seen receiving treatment on the bench for what appeared to be a lower body injury during the final few minutes of the game.

Central Connecticut State jumped out to a 10-2 lead, and Rutgers did not lead until a Williams jumper put the Scarlet Knights ahead 24-23 with 3:26 to go in the first half.

Mifflin) made a career-high four tackles for Penn State.Guard Michal Menet (Exeter) saw time on special teams and then on offense in the fourth quarter.Wilson graduates Justin Weller of Penn State and Austin Rosa of Rutgers were in uniform but did not play.
