It was Conference Championship Saturday and even though their game didn’t get Penn State a Conference Title, it was a big Win for Penn State. In Penn State’s very first play, Sean Clifford finds Jahan Dotson, who finds open space and a 75 yard Touchdown. What a way to open up this game. On their next drive, Clifford fumbles on the first play. Fast forward and the Nittany Lions get the ball back. James McCourt with a 65 yard kickoff return Touchdown. Penn State putting up 12 points in 3 plays. This First Half was all Offense, with 21 points from the Fighting Illini and Dotson makes it 42 points from the Nittay Lions. Dotson had two Touchdowns before half time.
On the Defensive side of the ball, PJ Mustipher at 300 pounds taking Isiah Williams to the ground. 3 Sacks total on the night from the Defense. The scoring slowed down in the Second Half, but not for Penn State. Will Levis passes to Tight End Brenton Strange for a Touchdown and a helmet full of grass as a keepsake. What a game for Penn State, 327 yards in the air, 253 on the ground, and an over 50 point performance in Beaver Stadium. Penn State wins 56-21.
