Indiana's fake punt against Penn State goes horribly wrong

Indiana's fake punt against Penn State goes horribly wrong

IN cut the deficit to 27-24 in the final quarter, but Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford responded with an 18-play, 75-yard TD drive that ate up 9:01 of clock and gave the Nittany Lions a double-digit lead.

Brown turned another IN turnover into a score when he raced 35 yards early IN the third.

IN outgained Penn State through the air, but the Nittany Lions' running game was dominant, more than doubling up the Hoosiers' 92 yards with 192 yards of their own. IN could never regain the momentum lost from that series of plays.

Penn State QB Sean Clifford's 38-yard touchdown run: Clifford was seen flexing his leg early in the game, and there was some question as to whether last week's late limp vs. Minnesota carried into this week.

The Nittany Lions' next opponent needs no introduction. I was ticked off we weren't able to finish for a variety of reasons.

There was a pose to strike with Pat Freiermuth, the tight end crossing his arms after Hamler first crossed his and waited for a hug.

What followed was one of the season's worst special-teams plays.

Still, with two games to go in the season, Penn State is still in the mix for the Big Ten title. On the season, Clifford has thrown for 2,271 yards and 21 touchdowns. "We did not come here to be close". "He was a little sad because he wasn't out there to be with us, but he knows he's going to bounce back and do whatever he has to do to get back out there".

Ohio State is second in the CFP rankings and is on the verge of returning to the playoff for the first time since 2016. On the ground, he also had 55 yards and two scores.

The team also attempted to utilize backup quarterback Will Levis in the game, but with little success.

"Both allegations are now being assessed", it said in a statement, noting its special enquiry team is responsible for investigating such cases.

Gophers freshman Jared Moe made 25 saves in his seventh career start, while Peyton Jones made 35 saves for Penn State.

It appears as if Penn State's running game is fresh, whether they feature the rotation or not.

In his press conference, James Franklin talked about how important it was to the program that they implement some "12 personnel" in its package. "We're a good football team too".

After forcing a three-and-out on Penn State's first drive of the game, junior receiver Whop Philyor muffed the punt as the Nittany Lions jumped on the ball, leading to their first touchdown of the game. "It's essentially a fullback".

Another freshman, left-tackle Matthew Bedford was another young player that struggled all afternoon against Penn State's talented front-seven.

On Penn State's final drive, the Nittany Lions were able to milk the clock, ending IU's chance at an upset as they were on the field for over nine minutes, giving IU just 1:44 to score 10 points. Heading into its game on Saturday against Rutgers, the Buckeyes had not been challenged for four quarters by any opponent.

The team has yet to score fewer than 34 points in a game this year, meaning Penn State's defense will need a almost flawless game if they expect to come away with the victory.

Penn State: The Nittany Lions, who hadn't allowed a first-quarter touchdown all season before last week, have now allowed four over their last two games.

The teams will kick off at noon on the Fox Network from Ohio Stadium.
