Fourth Quarter

Third Quarter

2:13 — Folks we’ve found Saquon Barkley.

3:42 — Northwestern’s top tackler Paddy Fisher was tossed from the game for his late hit on Trace McSorley, but the Nittany Lions have still struggled to move the ball — especially in the rushing game.

9:33 — Saquon Barkley: 0 yards off nine carries, but now he has a touchdown.


Second Quarter

12:04 — The duo is back at it again — combining to make it 10-0

First Quarter

0:13 — The great field position and a fortunate pass interference call on Northwestern that negated a Trace McSorley interception leads to the first score of the game.

3:38 — Penn State forces a fumble to take over in Wildcat territory.

5:03 — Penn State goes three-and-out and Blake Gillikin boots it 39 yards to the Northwestern 45.

6:41 — Another HUGE defensive performance as Northwestern’s first-and-goal disintegrates thanks for heavy quarterback pressure and Amani Oruwariye’s third interception of the year.

11:19 — The Nittany Lions racked up a few first downs to get into Northwestern territory, but turned the ball over on downs at the 38-yard line after going for it on fourth-and-eight. Bold move to start the game for James Franklin and Co.
