Number 4 Penn State Tops Pitt, 33-14

By Will Graves – STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Trace McSorley threw for three touchdowns, including Saquon Barkley’s 46-yard catch-and-run, and No. 4 Penn State pulled away from Pittsburgh for a 33-14 win. McSorley completed 15 of 28 passes for 164 yards, helping the Nittany Lions (2-0) avenge a loss to their in-state rivals a year ago. Tight end Mike Gesicki had two touchdown receptions and Barkley ran for 88 yards as Penn State ended a two-game skid against the Panthers. Qadree Ollison rushed for 96 yards for the Panthers (1-1), but Pitt’s offense struggled to finish drives early on…

Penn State 1st Shutout Since 2007

By Travis Johnson – STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Each time Penn State’s offense drove toward Beaver Stadium’s south end on Saturday, Saquon Barkley passed 16 Penn State students in the front row whose bare chests, painted blue and white and beginning to smear from the rain, spelled out S-A-Q-U-O-N F-O-R H-E-I-S-M-A-N. Barkley has tried to block out personal hype to keep focused on his responsibilities as a team leader. He’ll need to keep doing it, especially if he keeps playing like this. The junior running back racked up 226 total yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 6 Penn…

PSU B1G East Champions!

By Travis Johnson (AP – State College, PA) – Trace McSorley has gotten used to seeing extra defenders crowding the line of scrimmage this season and he’s become adept at taking advantage of it. With another defense selling out to stop star running back Saquon Barkley, McSorley completed 17 of 23 passes for 376 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 8 Penn State to a 45-12 victory over Michigan State and the Big Ten East title Saturday. Penn State (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten, No. 7 CFP) edged No. 2 Ohio State for the East title, setting up a conference…

PSU 41, Iowa 14

GoPSUSports.com – UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – No. 12 Penn State led from the game’s opening drive to the finish, as another 200-plus all-purpose yard performance by Saquon Barkley and a staunch run defense that yielded just 30 yards carried Penn State to a 41-14 victory over Iowa in Big Ten football action Saturday night Beaver Stadium. A raucous crowd of 106,194 cheered the Nittany Lions to their fifth straight victory and their sixth straight at home. At 7-2, Penn State is off to its best start since starting the 2011 season 8-1. The Lions have won 12 out of their…

Penn State 38, Maryland 14

GoPSUSports.com – UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Running back Saquon Barkely and quarterback Trace McSorley combined for 283 of Penn State’s 372 rushing yards to lead the Nittany Lions past Maryland, 38-14, in Big Ten football action Saturday in Beaver Stadium. It was Penn State’s most prolific rushing game against an FBS or Big Ten opponent since posting 390 against Michigan State in 2002, and the 372 yards rank as its third-most against a Big Ten opponent. Barkley posted a career-high 202 yards and a touchdown on a career-high 31 carries to lead Penn State (4-2, 2-1 B1G), while McSorley set career highs…

PSU Over Kent St 33-13

By Travis Johnson/STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Trace McSorley isn’t offended when he sees defenders packing the line of scrimmage, knowing their primary goal is to stop the electric running back lined up next to or behind him on any given play. The Penn State quarterback is content to build his own reputation as a playmaker, and eventually, a downfield-passer to be reckoned with. Although he and the rest of Penn State’s new-look offense started slowly in a 33-13 win over Kent State on Saturday, McSorley believes he made positive first steps toward that goal. “When you’ve got Saquon (Barkley)…
