Penn State, Trace McSorley overcome Pitt's game of keep-away

  • Penn State fans hold fall wedding the right way

That makes Narduzzi's Panthers the team with everything to gain. "There are a lot of guys on (Penn State's) sideline I know personally, and there are lot of guys on our sideline that they know personally".

Offensively, Pittsburgh football averages 28.0 points and 348.0 total yards, 140.0 in passing and 208.0 in rushing. That second half was the first time they realized the explosive ability offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead's scheme contained, that they could come back quickly from deficits - knowledge that made the early deficit they faced against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game three months later seem like a climbable hill.

Mike Gesicki had a pair of first-quarter touchdown receptions and Barkley finished with 183 total yards and two scores as Penn State ended a two-game skid against the Panthers in front of the largest crowd to pack Beaver Stadium in almost a decade. The host Nittany Lions won, 52-0, as Barkley rushed for 172 yards and two scores. It seemed like Pitt was in position to score a. McSorley had a Hail Mary try at the end of the first half intercepted. Pitt is a decent team, but this Penn State squad will have an advantage in this one due to some big defensive stars being suspended.

Once gain, the Lions defense held up their end during a 33-14 pounding of Pitt, keeping the Panthers out of the end zone until it was way too late and limiting them to two measly field goals through the first three quarters. In Week 2 a year later, the No. 5 Sooners returned the favor, outplaying, overmatching and overwhelming the No. 2 Buckeyes in every facet of the game in a 31-16 win.

Pittsburgh pulled off the upset in 2016 by defeating the Nittany Lions 42-39, and it seems Franklin noted the Panthers celebration. Even though the Panthers started with the ball, the Lions quickly gained possession. The play mimicked the pass that resulted in an interception against Akron. The Nittany Lions continued their scoring momentum with their third drive.

Penn State's offense, which started and stayed hot in Week 1, was inconsistent in the first half Saturday.




The game drew a crowd of 109,898, the seventh-largest in Beaver Stadium history and the largest since 2008, six years before Franklin arrived.

Max Brown throws a pick on his second throw of the day.

Penn State never looked back after that touchdown, which opened an 18-point margin.

Some more tailgating outside Beaver Stadium.

Pitt Chancellor Pat Gallagher and Athletic Director Heather Lyke are on the field.

"The Panthers come out in white throwback uniforms with the Nittany Lions in their standard blue shirt, white trousers combination".
