  • McSorley, Barkley leads Penn State to 35-6 win over Rutgers

Sure, Penn State has lost two of it's last three games, but there's no logical explanation for Barkley's 78 all-purpose yards - even with a 30-yard kick return - in his team's 35-6 victory over Rutgers on Saturday. Penn State returned to Beaver Stadium on Saturday humbled but determined, then deflated the crowd again.

McSorley broke the school mark with his 66th career touchdown on a option run in the second quarter as he scampered into the end zone for a 20-yard score.

He's not oft-discussed, but you might be hardpressed to find a Nittany Lion having a better under the radar season than Hamilton is. On the ground, McSorley has 305 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns.

The Penn State defense, which was torched in the last two weeks, had a decent day, holding the Scarlet Knights to 200 total yards. "He came in his redshirt-freshman year in the Tax Slayer Bowl and started slinging it and he's been making plays ever since". It was Penn State's first loss of the season, but the team had control most of the game. However, the Lions' defense held the Scarlet Knights to just a field goal. Penn State is giving up an average of just 14.8 points and 331.4 yards per game while the offense is putting up 38 points and 443.6 yards per contest. However the start of Saturday's game with Rutgers didn't go as planned. The Scarlet Knights are 5-4 with the over this season, hitting it in four of their last five games.

"It's part of the game", Barkley said.

Barkley, who managed a season-low 35 yards on 14 carries, did run for two short TDs in the third quarter.

Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights let a rare chance to win back-to-back games slip away after a solid first half.

Head coach James Franklin should still be concerned about the lack of a run game. "He keeps people honest, keeps them on their toes". Edwards has over 630 yards and six touchdowns this year. McSorley's top receiver is DaeSean Hamilton with 36 catches for 606 yards and 6 touchdowns. Luckily, Rutgers is just the team they need.

The Knights also bridged the first and second quarters with a 15-play, 57-yard march that consumed 7:45 and resulted in Harte's 25-yard field goal.

Penn State generated just one sack and four tackles for loss as Ryan Buchholz again sat out.

"Jason's been tremendous in his entire career here", Franklin said. He does a great job of getting us lined up. Love was in the air at Beaver Stadium that night, and with Nebraska and Maryland left on their schedule, things are looking up for the Nittany Lions.
