Penn State QB Sean Clifford Has A Message For Ohio State

The second big mistake IN made on special teams was to attempt a fake punt early IN the third quarter on fourth-and-inches.

Penn State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 9 CFP) got three touchdowns from quarterback Sean Clifford who completed 11 of 23 passes for 179 yards and ran for 55 yards in Penn State's 34-27 win over No. 24 in (7-3, 4-3). This was one they wanted to prove that they could hang and have a chance to win at the end. Brown also added two catches for 20 yards. "And I think it helps our defense as well, because our defense sees things from our offense that it's going to see throughout the year".

Clifford, who went 23 for 43 for 340 yards and one score, connected with Jahan Dotson for 49 yards to get Penn State to the 11. The Hoosiers never recovered as two plays later, Penn State's Journey Brown rushed 35 yards for a touchdown that extended the Lions' lead to 27-14. Daniel George was called for offensive pass interference during an over-the-middle catch by Brown that reached the 2. The Lions finished with 192 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and the hosts pieced together an 18-play, 75-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter that included 16 runs.

On the outside, the guys who will be catching the ball from Clifford are some of the best young weapons in the Big Ten.

Antoine Winfield Jr. had the first two picks in the first half, matching the FBS lead and setting the all-time Minnesota record with seven on the season. The Lions took over at their own 25-yard line after the kickoff and powered their way downfield.

For the Nittany Lions, they will look to bounce back after their first loss of the 2019 season, falling on the road to Minnesota last week, and remain in the College Football Playoff hunt.

Best kick: Jake Pinegar's 47-yard field goal in the first quarter gave the Lions a 10-7 lead. For a while, Penn State was playing great football, which resulted in an 8-0 record.

Penn State scored the final five goals of the game to defeat the Gophers hockey team 6-3 on Saturday night at 3M Arena at Mariucci and sweep the Big Ten series.

Hidden statistic: Not counting sacks, Penn State got 76 yards rushing on 13 carries out of its quarterback position (Sean Clifford and Will Levis). They have a two-game lead in the West Division with three to go.
