Meadville's Journey Brown scores first college TD

Meadville's Journey Brown scores first college TD

Brown makes it at least seven players who've scored a rushing touchdown for Penn State on the season which falls right in line with the resurgence of the Nittany Lions offensive line who played arguably their best game of the season Friday night.

If the final score was any indication, then No. 10 Penn State must have rolled through another opponent, lit up the scoreboard for the fourth consecutive week and headed back to State College with Ohio State on its mind.

Saquon who? The Nittany Lions sure didn't miss the early National Football League entry, now playing great for the Giants.

"We were getting movement all day and the backs were hitting the holes", said center Penn State Michal Menet, the former Exeter standout. Perhaps the best sign of the night for Penn State - wide receiver Juwan Johnson, who has struggled to catch the ball all season, had four catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. "I don't know if we've played many complete games since we've been here".

Big plays such as Sanders' go-ahead 48-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Slade's 61-yard touchdown run in the fourth were particularly damning.

The 9 p.m. EDT start was the latest for a Penn State game since the 1983 Kickoff Classic against Nebraska in the New Jersey Meadowlands started at the same time.

IL (2-2, 0-1) opened the second half with a 75-yard touchdown drive.

McSorley has now thrown a touchdown pass in 32 straight games.

With things going as well as they were on the ground, there was no need to take risks through the air and with both the run game and passing game seemingly having success whenever they so choose, it makes the match up against the Buckeyes that much more intriguing.




The Lions easily moved the ball up the field in the first two quarters, gaining 324 yards, but a fumble and an interception stopped drives.

"I think we're close", McSorley said.

That pace is going to fall back as Penn State gets further into the Big Ten schedule and with Ohio State coming to town next weekend, it will fall fast.

Tight end Jonathan Holland was the leading receiver, pulling in three receptions for 53 yards. Sanders scored on a 2-yard run after a pass interference penalty in the end zone, and freshman tight end Pat Freiermuth scored on a 5-yard pass from McSorley.

Reggie Corbin ran for 87 yards.

"We didn't play as well as I think we're capable of playing in the first half", Franklin said. They were able to get it to 21-17 at halftime.

Sanders broke a tackle and plowed through three defenders near the goal line for a 14-yard touchdown that gave Penn State a 7-0 lead.
