PHILADELPHIA - Penn State raced out to a 10-0 lead early, but Temple responded with 27 points over the final three quarters to win the season opener, 27-10, Saturday afternoon in Lincoln Financial Field. True freshman wide receiver Brandon Polk started, and on Penn State’s first play from scrimmage, ran 33 yards. It help set up a field goal, and running back Akeel Lynch broke off a 42-yard touchdown run on Penn State’s next possession for a quick 10-0 lead. Temple would not yield another score though, forcing six straight punts after Lynch’s score. On the seventh possession since the score, with the game tied at 10-10 in the third quarter, quarterback Christian Hackenberg was intercepted in the end zone, and the return set up the Owls’ go-ahead score from the two. Quarterback P.J. Walker, who completed 15-of-20 pass attempts for 143 yards, rushed it in himself. Temple running back Jahad Thomas rushed 29 times for 135 yards and rushed for two touchdowns. Sophomore wide receiver Chris Godwin caught five passes for 81 yards for Penn State to lead all receivers. On defense, senior defensive end Carl Nassib made a careerhigh 10 tackles. He recorded his second career solo sack, good for a 12 yard loss, in the second quarter. His 2.5 tackles for loss were also a career-best. Senior cornerback Trevor Williams tied his career-high with six tackles, matching his six stops vs. UCF on September 14, 2013. His 2.0 TFL surpassed his career total entering the game (1.5 TFL). Junior linebacker Brandon Bell forced his second career fumble in the second quarter, and his 2.5 tackles for loss are a career-high, surpassing his 2.0 TFLs at Indiana on Nov. 8, 2014. The loss to Temple snapped a 39-game undefeated streak for Penn State in the series that dated 74 years.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State scored on three consecutive drives starting late in the third quarter en route to a 27-14 victory over Buffalo in the home opener on a rainy afternoon in Beaver Stadium. Buffalo pulled within three points, 10-7, with a touchdown late in the third quarter, but a Penn State field goal before the end of the third quarter and a pair of touchdown on the next two drives to start the fourth put the game out of reach. Carl Nassib once again led the defense for Penn State, hauling in an interception that led to a field goal, posting three sacks and forcing two fumbles. The Nittany Lion defense held Buffalo to 274 yards (69 rushing, 205 passing) of total offense. It was the fewest rushing yards allowed since yielding 68 against Illinois last season. On the other side of the ball, Penn State totaled 200 yards rushing, led by true freshman running back Saquon Barkley, who totaled 115 yards on 12 attempts with a touchdown. He is the first PSU true freshman to rush for more than 100 yards in a game since Silas Redd had 131 yards on 11 carries and scored one touchdown against Northwestern in 2010. Barkley broke off back-to-back runs totaling 50 yards to start Penn State’s first possession of the fourth quarter, which led to a touchdown and 20-7 Penn State lead. He also found the end zone with 9:02 remaining in the contest from nine yards out for a 27-7 lead. Another true freshman, Brandon Polk, totaled 45 yards on three carries, scampering 22 yards for a touchdown for the Lions’ first score of the game, and adding another to setup a short field goal attempt late in the third quarter. It marked the first time since 2005 that Penn State had two true freshmen score a touchdown in the same game. Christian Hackenberg finished with one touchdown and 128 yards passing, completing 14-of-27 attempts in wet conditions. He connected on a 38-yard pass play to Chris Godwin, who led the receiving corps with five receptions for 75 yards, to set up Barkley’s fourth quarter score. DaeSean Hamilton hauled in a 5-yard touchdown reception on the drive keyed by Barkley’s big runs and totaled three catches for 15 yards. The offense was strongest in the second half, totaling 202 yards, and did not yield a sack in the game for the first time since 2013 in a win over Wisconsin. The Lions did not turn the ball over either for the first time since last season’s tilt against UMass. Contributing on defense in addition to Nassib were Austin Johnson and Troy Reeder. Johnson posted a career-high nine tackles, including 2.5 for loss and 1.5 sacks. Reeder also surpassed a career high with seven tackles in his first career start.

The Nittany Lion special teams contributed, as well, returning both a punt return and kick return for at least 58 yards in the same game for the first time since 2007, when they accomplished the feat against Notre Dame. Buffalo quarterback Joe Licata completed 24-of-35 pass attempts for 205 yards and two touchdowns, but was sacked six times for 47 yards and picked off once. Ron Willoughby was his top target with eight catches for a touchdown, and Marcus McGill caught four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown. Anthone Taylor added 93 yards on the ground with 18 carries. The game had an electrifying start as Penn State’s Nick Scott returned the opening kickoff 58 yards to the Buffalo 42. It was the longest for Penn State since Chaz Powell had a 92-yard return against Purdue in 2011. A 22-yard touchdown run on a sweep to Polk was the game’s first score and gave Penn State a 7-0 lead with 6:57 remaining in the first half. A 58-yard punt return by DeAndre Thompkins, on which he was barely tripped up by UB punter Tyler Grassman on a diving play, setup the two-play scoring drive at Buffalo’s 24. It was the longest punt return by a Nittany Lion since Derrick Williams’ 63-yard punt return for a touchdown at Wisconsin in 2008. With Buffalo on its own 33 on the ensuing possession, Anthony Zettel burst through the UB line and tipped a Licata pass, and Nassib was able to haul it in with one hand for the interception, which he returned10 yards to the UB 12. Joey Julius converted a 22-yard field goal to cap the drive with 3:58 left in the half. After the halftime break, Willoughby capped a 11-play, 78yard drive with a 14-yard touchdown reception to cut Penn State’s lead to three. Penn State converted a field goal on its next possession, and then after a UB three-and-out, Barkley broke free on the first PSU play for 33 yards to the Buffalo 29, and then ran down the middle and leapt over a safety before being brought down after a 17-yard gain. Hackenberg threw for seven yards to Godwin and connected with Hamilton on a 5-yard touchdown reception for a 20-7 lead with 12:04 remaining in the game. Another three-and-out led to Penn State’s final scoring drive, as the Lions drove 74 yards on just six plays, a 15-yard pass interference penalty and a 38-yard connection between Hackenberg and Godwin led to Barkley’s 9-yard touchdown run. Buffalo drove 82 yards on 13 plays to reach the end zone on a 10-yard reception by McGill with 4:38 remaining, but two sackfumbles by Nassib helped prevent UB from mustering another scoring drive.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Saquon Barkley rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns to lead Penn State past Rutgers, 28-3, in the Big Ten opener on a rainy night in Beaver Stadium. The Nittany Lions took command of the game in the second quarter with three touchdowns in front a “Stripe Out” crowd of 103,323. Penn State led Rutgers 21-0 at halftime and did not allow the Scarlet Knights to reach the red zone until doing so once in the fourth quarter, yielding a field goal. The three points allowed was the fewest for the Nittany Lions since 2011 against Iowa. The Nittany Lion ground game keyed the offense totaling 330 of 471 total offensive yards, with 174 coming in the first half. It was the most yards gained on the ground for the Lions since 2009 when they totaled 338 and the first time they broke the 200-yard mark in consecutive games since the same year. Barkley posted his second consecutive game of more than 100 yards, finding the end zone twice and totaling his season-high 195 yards on 21 carries, the most yards for a PSU true freshman rusher since 1998 and the most for any PSU rusher since Bill Belton totaled 201 in 2013. Barkley was particularly strong in the second half, totaling 140 yards and a touchdown on 11 rushes. Fellow running back Akeel Lynch also broke 100 yards, totaling 120 on 10 carries, with nine carries and 115 yards coming in the first half, including a career-best 75-yard touchdown run. It was the first time Penn State had two 100-yard rushers in a game since Lynch and Belton accomplished the feat in 2013. The Nittany Lion defense forced Rutgers to punt on its first five possessions before Grant Haley hauled in an interception on the sixth and final RU drive of the first half. John Reid hauled in his first interception and recovered a late fumble, as the Lions pulled in a season-high three turnovers. The Blue and White continued to penetrate the backfield as well, totaling 9.0 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks. Defensive tackle Austin Johnson led the team with 2.0 backfield stops, including a sack. Carl Nassib continued his strong start, tallying his team-best fifth sack as part of 1.5 backfield tackles. Safety Marcus Allen led the team with 11 tackles, including seven solo stops. Christian Hackenberg completed 10-of-19 passes with one interception for 141 yards, and was not sacked for a second consecutive game. His top target was DaeSean Hamilton who totaled 81 yards on four catches in the first half, and finished with five for 86 yards. Chris Godwin also caught four passes, totaling 49 yards. Rutgers quarterback Chris Laviano completed 27 of 42 passing attempts for 251 yards with two interceptions. Josh Hicks led the ground game with 49 yards, but the Scarlet Knights only totaled 43 for the game, the fewest Penn State had allowed since holding Maryland to 33 last season. Carlton Agudosi led 10

Rutgers pass catchers with six receptions for 80 yards. After playing the field position game on its first two drives of the game, pinning Rutgers on its own 2- and 10-yard lines, respectively, with punts from Chris Gulla, the Penn State offense found the end zone on its third possession, driving 80 yards on 12 plays in a season-long six minutes, two seconds. Hackenberg found Godwin along the right sideline for a 30-yard gain on the first play, and then the Nittany Lions pounded the ball into the red zone with eight consecutive running plays. On 3rd-and-3 from the 17, Hackenberg found Hamilton for a 13-yard gain to the 4-yard line, setting up an end-around to redshirt freshman wide receiver DeAndre Thompkins from two yards out for his first career touchdown with 12:10 remaining in the second quarter. The Lions went three-and-out on their next possession, but scored on their next two. Starting at the Penn State 10, the Lions drove 90 yards on eight plays for their longest drive of the season. Hackenberg found Hamilton with a short pass in the middle of the field that Hamilton was able to turn into a 48-yard gain to the Rutgers’ 42. The Nittany Lions then handed off to Barkley on six of the next seven plays, and he capped the drive with a 15-yard touchdown run with 2:06 remaining in the half. After another Rutgers’ punt, Penn State took over on its own 25 with 1:14 on the clock. Lynch broke through a hole in the middle and ran 75 yards to the end zone. Rutgers assembled the longest drive of the scoreless third quarter, advancing 54 yards on seven plays before Reid ended it with his first career interception. Rutgers reached the red zone for the first time with just under 12 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, capping a 16-play, 71yard drive with a 34-yard field goal. The drive took 7:13. A 40-yard rush by Barkley keyed Penn State’s ensuing drive, but a Hackenberg pass from the Rutgers’ 28 was intercepted by Anthony Cioffi at the 1-yard line with 7:57 remaining. Rutgers reached midfield on their first two plays, but three consecutive sacks by Nassib, Jordan Lucas and Johnson, respectively, moved Rutgers back to its own 21. Barkley responded on the ensuing possession, breaking off a 54-yard run to the Rutgers’ 16 on the first play, and rushing into the end zone on the next for the final margin.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State scored three touchdowns off three San Diego State fumbles en route to a 37-24 victory in non-conference action in Beaver Stadium. Quarterback Christian Hackenberg completed 21-of-35 pass attempts for 296 yards and three touchdowns, while defensive tackle Austin Johnson returned a fumble 71 yards for a touchdown to put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter. The game turned in Penn State’s favor late in the first half when San Diego State muffed a punt and fumbled in Nittany Lion territory in the final 2:33. The Aztecs led 14-13 but the turnovers allowed Penn State to take a 27-14 lead into the locker room after Hackenberg capped both resulting drives with touchdown passes. Chris Godwin and DaeSean Hamilton led the Lions with five receptions each, with Godwin totaling 78 yards and a touchdown. Godwin also recovered the muffed punt late in the second quarter. Saeed Blacknall led in yardage, totaling a career-high 101 yards on four receptions, including career-long receptions of 45 and 46 yards. Running backs Saquon Barkley and Mark Allen both factored in the passing game, each notching their first receiving touchdowns. Barkley led the team on the ground with 62 yards on eight carries, all in the first quarter and early second quarter. Penn State was strong defensively, yielding only two drives longer than 36 yards, and 242 total yards. The Nittany Lions’ 141 passing yards allowed were their fewest against an FBS nonconference opponent since holding Kent State to 134 in 2013. SDSU’s first touchdown came on a 100-yard kickoff return by Rashaad Penny, and its last came after getting the ball on the Penn State 21-yard line after a Nittany Lion muffed punt early in the third quarter. Not including special teams scores, the Nittany Lion defense has not allowed more than seven points in the first half of 10 consecutive games. Defensive tackle Anthony Zettel led the unit with a career-high seven tackles, including a team-best 2.5 for loss and a half sack. He also recovered a fumble that led to a touchdown and broke up one pass. Defensive end Carl Nassib had 2.0 of the team’s five sacks, including the sack-forced fumble that led to Johnson’s touchdown run. Defensive end Garrett Sickels forced the fumble that Zettel recovered and recorded a half sack and pass breakup in addition to three tackles.

Penny led SDSU with 192 all-purpose yards, including the 100-yard kickoff return and a 55-yard rush that keyed a touchdown drive. Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and caught four passes for 51 yards. Quarterback Maxwell Smith completed 10-of-30 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown, targeting Mikah Holder for 78 yards and a touchdown. SDSU’s fumbles before halftime allowed Penn State to score two touchdowns in the final 1:03 before the break. Lloyd Mills muffed a 44-yard punt from Penn State’s Chris Gulla at the SDSU 27. The Nittany Lions found the end zone in four plays, as Allen capped the short drive with a 13-yard touchdown reception with 1:03 remaining in the half. Allen pulled in the short pass near the line of scrimmage and leapt into the end zone as he was tripped up. He was originally marked down at the two, but the spot was overturned upon video review. After the ensuing kickoff, SDSU took over on its own 25-yard line, but Sickels stripped Pumphrey of the ball on the first play from scrimmage, and Zettel pounced on it, giving the Lions the ball back on the 23 with 55 seconds remaining in the half. After a sack, Hackenberg led the Lions to the 11, completing an 8-yard pass to Kyle Carter and a 7-yard pass to Hamilton on 3rd-and-5. Hackenberg then converted another third down after a pair of incompletions, finding Godwin in the middle of the field for an 11-yard touchdown with 17 seconds left before the break. Hackenberg completed 16-of-24 pass attempts in the half for 234 yards and three touchdowns. Blacknall caught three of the passes for 98 yards. The Nittany Lions outgained SDSU in total offense 297-81 yards. San Diego State threatened in the second half, taking advantage of a muffed punt for a six-play, 21-yard touchdown drive. Pumphrey capped the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run. Late in the third quarter when SDSU began to drive on offense again. Starting at their own 18, a 31-yard pass from Smith to Holder moved the Aztecs to the PSU 24. The drive came to an abrupt end though when Nassib forced Smith to fumble on the next play, planting his helmet on the quarterback’s arm just before it could come forward. The 6-4, 323-pound Johnson scooped up the resulting fumble and rumbled 71-yards to the end zone for a 34-21 lead with 13:44 remaining. Joey Julius would convert his third field goal of the game with 9:52 remaining for the final margin. A 32-yard pass from running back Nick Scott to Godwin moved the Lions into range at the SDSU 13.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Linebacker Jason Cabinda made a career-high 14 tackles and forced a fumble, as Penn State’s defense led the Nittany Lions to a 20-14 victory over Army West Point on a rainy afternoon in Beaver Stadium. The unit recovered three fumbles for a second consecutive game and Cabinda also secured the victory with a sack on fourth-and-5 in Penn State territory in the game’s final two minutes. It was Penn State’s fourth consecutive victory in its fourth consecutive home game, giving the Nittany Lions their best home start since 2008. The Lions led the game from their second offensive possession until the end. Penn State running back Nick Scott totaled 54 yards on the ground on 12 attempts and gave the Lions the early lead with an 11-yard touchdown run for his first career score. He also caught one pass for 22 yards. Quarterback Christian Hackenberg completed 10-of-19 passing attempts, for 156 yards. Ninety-one yards came on what proved to be the game-deciding scoring drive late in the third quarter, as he marched the Lions down the field on just three plays, connecting with wide receiver Chris Godwin on a 49-yard pass and finding tight end Mike Gesicki for a 33-yard touchdown reception. It was Hackenberg’s 37th career touchdown pass to tie Chuck Fusina for seventh all-time at Penn State. Godwin finished with 66 yards and four catches, while Gesicki’s touchdown was the first of his career which fittingly came on his birthday. Quarterback A.J. Schurr led the Army’s triple-option offense, running 24 times for 74 yards and both of the team’s touchdowns, including a 56-yard touchdown run. He completed his lone pass attempt for 32 yards, leading to his first touchdown in the third quarter. Dropping back to pass only a handful of times, Schurr was sacked three times, twice by Cabinda and once by Carl Nassib, who entered the game leading the country in the category and has recorded a sack in each game this season. Army’s single completion matches the lowest total of the year, and its one attempt is also the lowest thus far this year. Nine different Black Knights carried the ball, totaling 261 yards. The wet conditions made handling the ball difficult for both teams. It made the passing game difficult for the Lions, while Army fumbled seven times with only two being forced, by Cabinda and Anthony Zettel, respectively. Manny Bowen, Von Walker and Garret Sickels each recovered fumbles. Penn State’s six fumble recoveries in consecutive games (3 vs. San Diego State and 3 vs. Army) are its most since having six at Virginia (3) and vs. Navy (3) in 2012.

Penn State received the opening kickoff and went three-andout, but received the ball back immediately when Army fumbled the snap on their very first play and Sickels recovered it at the Army 42. The Nittany Lions were then able to drive to the end zone on eight plays. Hackenberg converted a fourth-and-4 with a 12-yard pass to DaeSean Hamilton to the Army 11 to keep the drive alive. Scott then rushed across the goal line on the next play for the touchdown. Army was unable to cross midfield until early in the second quarter, when an 11-yard gain by Drue Harris placed the Black Knights at the Penn State 43. Jordan Asberry fumbled on the next play though and Walker recovered it. Another fumble on Army’s next drive set up a Penn State field goal drive starting at the Army 41. A career-long 19-yard rush by Hackenberg keyed the drive, and placekicker Joey Julius converted from 37 yards with just 25 seconds remaining in the half for a 10-0 advantage. The Nittany Lions added a field goal on their first drive of the third quarter, as Julius connected from 27 yards for a 13-0 lead. Penn State held Army to just 77 yards of offense in the first half, but was able to make progress in the second half. Army responded on its ensuing possession with an eight-play, 76-yard touchdown drive, as Schurr completed a 32-yard pass to Edgar Poe to move the Black Knights to the Penn State 12. Schurr then rushed himself the next three plays, finding the end zone from three yards out. Both teams then traded punts, resulting in Penn State taking over at its own 9-yard line with 1:13 remaining in the third quarter, but Hackenberg was able to engineer a three-play, 91-yard touchdown drive. Hackenberg found Kyle Carter for a quick 9-yard gain, but then connected with Godwin on a 49-yard pass down the middle, and the capped the drive with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Gesicki at the conclusion of the quarter for a 20-7 lead. However, Schurr broke free for a 56-yard touchdown run on Army’s next possession to cut the deficit to six points again with 11:04 remaining in the fourth quarter. Penn State was only able to get one first down after the kickoff and was forced to punt, giving the Black Knights the ball at their own 15 after a holding penalty during the return. The Nittany Lion defense only yielded 42 yards on nine plays in more than six minutes before Cabinda dropped Schurr for a 10-yard loss on fourth-and-5 with 1:21 remaining.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg accounted for all four touchdowns and became the second player in school history to surpass 7,000 career passing yards, as he led the Nittany Lions past Indiana, 29-7, in Big Ten football action on a sunny afternoon in Beaver Stadium. The Penn State defense held Indiana’s league-leading offense, which was averaging 498.2 yards per game entering the contest, to just 234 yards and a first-quarter touchdown. Defensive end Carl Nassib registered two sacks and two forced fumbles, as the Lions totaled four sacks - one more than Indiana had allowed prior all season. Defensive tackle Austin Johnson also recorded a sack and was one of three Lions with nine tackles. Hackenberg used both his arm and his legs to move the ball downfield. He completed 21-of-39 passing attempts for 262 yards and two touchdowns, while setting career-highs rushing with two more touchdowns, 21 yards and a career-best 22-yard run. Wide receiver Chris Godwin was his top target with four catches for 14 yards, while fellow receivers DaeSean Hamilton and Brandon Polk both caught 39-yard touchdown passes. Hackenberg targeted eight different receivers in the contest. The Lions used seven different ball carriers to total 154 yards rushing on 32 attempts. Nick Scott and Mark Allen had eight carries each, with Scott totaling a career-best 57 yards and Mark Allen totaling a career-best 45. Indiana quarterback Zander Diamont led the Hoosiers in the air with nine completions on 17 attempts for 90 yards, and also led on the ground with 11 rushes for 38 yards and the team’s lone touchdown. However, he left the game in the third quarter and freshman Danny Cameron completed 6-of-16 passes for 65 yards with one interception in relief. Ricky Jones was the game’s leading receiver with five catches for 59 yards. Marcus Oliver paced the Indiana defense with a game-high 13 tackles, while Nick Mangieri and Zack Shaw recorded two sacks each. Hackenberg did most of his damage in the first half, throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for one. He completed 12-of-23 passing attempts for 186 yards, while rushing five times for 28 yards. Both teams scored touchdowns in the first quarter. Penn State struck first on its third offensive drive, taking advantage of an Indiana personal foul that negated a lost fumble on third-and-10 from Penn State’s own 36. The penalty moved the Nittany Lions to the Indiana 49, and they scored two plays later. Hackenberg threw a short pass to Scott out of the backfield for 10 yards, and then Polk used his speed to get behind the Hoosiers’ secondary for a 39-yard

touchdown reception - the first of his career - with 7:35 remaining in the first quarter. Indiana would answer on its ensuing possession, driving 65 yards on eight plays for a game-tying touchdown. Diamont moved Indiana into Penn State territory with a 10-yard rush, and then after a rushing attempt for no gain, connected on passes of 14 and 17 yards on consecutive plays to reach the PSU 12. He called his own number on the next play and rushed to the right for a touchdown with 4:11 remaining in the quarter. Indiana caught Penn State off guard with an onside kick and kept the ball on offense, but the Nittany Lion defense forced a three-and-out - one of six on the day. Penn State took over at its own 7 and drove 50 yards on seven plays into Hoosier territory, but Mark Allen failed to hold onto a hand off and fumbled the ball away with four seconds remaining in the opening quarter for the Lions’ first lost fumble on offense this season. Penn State’s defense continued to hold, and the Lion offense found the end zone again on its second drive of the second quarter after starting at its own 20. Mark Allen rushed for a career long 28 yards, and Hackenberg connected with Godwin for 14 yards to the IU 38-yard line. Allen lost a yard on his next carry, but Hackenberg found Hamilton down the right side for a 39-yard touchdown completion with 5:40 remaining in the half. The extra point attempt was no good, giving Penn State a 13-7 lead. After an Indiana three-and-out, highlighted by Johnson’s sack for a loss of 10 yards, Hackenberg used his legs to key Penn State’s next touchdown drive. Hackenberg used a 9-yard rush to advance to Indiana’s 35 and, one play later, a 22-yard rush to Indiana’s 6. One play later from the 1, he ran around the right end untouched into the end zone with 36 seconds remaining in the half. The extra point try attempt failed again, and Penn State took a 19-7 lead into the halftime break. The defenses ruled the third quarter, as Penn State was held to just 29 yards and Indiana was unable to get into scoring range despite 118 yards of offense. Indiana regained possession late in the third after a Penn State three-and-out, but cornerback John Reid intercepted a dropped pass at the Penn State 48. The play led to a seven-play, 52-yard touchdown drive that Hackenberg capped with a 5-yard run and dive into the end zone. A 21-yard completion to Kyle Carter on third-and-3 from the Indiana 45 kept the drive going. A 30-yard field goal for Penn State from Tyler Davis in the fourth quarter resulted in the final margin.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Penn State freshman running back Saquon Barkley rushed for 194 yards in his return from injury, but the Nittany Lions were unable to hold on to an early lead against No. 1 Ohio State, as the Buckeyes won, 38-10, in a Big Ten football contest Saturday night in Ohio Stadium. Penn State assembled a six-play, 61-yard field goal drive on its first possession and forced punts on Ohio State’s first three drives to hold a 3-0 lead after the first quarter. The Buckeyes found their rhythm in the second quarter though, as they scored rushing touchdowns on their next three possessions to take the lead for good, including two from quarterback J.T. Barrett. Barkley led all rushers with 194 yards on 26 carries, including a career-long 56-yard rush to Ohio State’s 21-yard line early in the fourth quarter on Penn State’s first offensive play after Ohio State extended its advantage to 24-10 with a field goal. The Lions reached the 13, but were unable to convert on third-and-2 and fourth-and-2, and turned the ball over on downs. Barkley also had a 44-yard touchdown run in the first quarter nullified by a penalty, and Penn State would eventually be forced to punt. Barkley’s 194-yard performance ranks as the fourth most by a true freshman at Penn State, trailing his third-ranked 195-yard performance against Rutgers earlier in the season. His three 100-yard rushing games are tied for second on the all-time true freshman season list, while D.J. Dozier’s five 100-yard rushing games in 1983 top it. Elliott and Barrett both broke 100 yards on the ground to lead Ohio State’s offense. Elliot totaled 153 yards on 27 carries with a touchdown, while Barrett amassed 102 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries, while completing all four passing attempts for 30 yards and two more touchdowns. Six different rushers ultimately totaled 315 yards. Trailing 21-3 after halftime, the Nittany Lions would fight back into the game at the start of the second half, as they covered 78 yards on just three plays for a touchdown. Quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw a 56-yard pass to Chris Godwin to flip the field from the Penn State 22 to the Ohio State 22 on the first play, and then Barkley rushed for 14 yards to the 8, setting up a quick strike to DaeSean Hamilton along the right sideline, on which he broke tackles and leapt into the end zone to reduce Ohio State’s lead to 21-10.

It was Hackenberg’s 40th career touchdown pass, giving him sole possession of No. 6 all-time at Penn State. Godwin finished with three catches for 103 yards, while Hamilton caught his 100th and 101st receptions to become the 13th player all-time at Penn State to reach 100 career completions. The score would prove to be the only one of the quarter and Penn State’s last. Ohio State would score on each of three drives in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach, kicking a 39yard field goal with 12:54 remaining before Barrett completed touchdown passes to Braxton Miller (6:25 remaining) and Michael Thomas (4:14). Field position was a factor in the game, as Penn State was pinned inside its own 10 four times and inside its own 20 a total of six times out of 12 offensive drives. Its best drive start came at its own 35. Ohio State had four drive starts in Penn State territory and started inside its own 20 just twice. The nation’s sack leader, Carl Nassib, led the Penn State defense with 1.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss, also tying for second on the team with eight tackles. The Lions totaled 10.0 tackles-for-loss to mark its fourth game with at least 9.0 TFLs. It was also the most surrendered by Ohio State this season. Joey Bosa led Ohio State with seven tackles, a sack and 3.0 TFLs.

BALTIMORE - Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns on just 13 completions to lead the Nittany Lions past Maryland, 31-30, in a wild game Saturday in M&T Bank Stadium, home of the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens. Penn State became bowl eligible with the win and extended its dominance over the Terrapins to 36-2-1 all-time. Hackenberg became the school record holder for career completions (608) and yards passing (7,453), surpassing Zach Mills in both. Penn State went ahead for good early in the fourth quarter when Geno Lewis made a spectacular 27-yard touchdown reception. All three of Hackenberg’s touchdown tosses came from long range, as Chirs Godwin pulled in a 37-yard score for a 14-13 lead late in the first half, and DaeSean Hamilton caught a 20-yard completion for a 24-20 lead with 5:32 remaining in the third quarter. Godwin totaled 96 yards on five receptions, while Hamilton totaled 135 on four. Maryland quarterback Perry Hills threw for 225 yards and a touchdown on 19-of-28 passing and rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown on 26 attempts, but was picked off three times and lost a fumble. Safety Malik Golden nabbed his first career interception on Maryland’s final drive of the game to seal the victory. Defensive end Garrett Sickels came up with his second fumble recovery of the season - and his career - in the fourth quarter and returned it 36 yards. Cornerback Grant Haley grabbed his second interception of the season and third career to end Maryland’s first drive of the game. Cornerback John Reid forced his first career fumble and safety Marcus Allen made his first career fumble recovery in Penn State territory on Maryland’s third possession of the game. Defensive tackle Austin Johnson tied his career high with nine tackles, marking the third time this season he has recorded nine stops. Troy Reeder posted a career-high 11 tackles to lead Penn State in the category. The Nittany Lions forced a season-high five turnovers for a total of 17 this season and recorded 11.0 tackles-for-loss.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Penn State defense limited Illinois to just 167 yards of offense and quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw for two touchdowns and caught another as the Nittany Lions cruised to a 39-0 victory over the Fighting Illini. The shutout was Penn State’s first since 2013 and first in the Big Ten since 2009. Penn State improved to 7-2 overall and 4-1 in the Big Ten for first time since 2012, and its margin of victory was the largest against a Big Ten opponent in a shutout since a 49-0 win vs. Northwestern in 2002. It was also Penn State’s largest win in a Big Ten game since a 41-point win (48-7) at Wisconsin in 2008. The 167 yards of offense (37 rushing, 130 passing) by Illinois was the fewest allowed by the Nittany Lions this year, and the fewest since holding Minnesota to 138 yards (37 rushing, 101 passing) in 2009. The Fighting Illini entered the game leading the Big Ten in protecting the quarterback, but yielded a season-high four sacks. Carl Nassib, who entered the game as the national sack leader, extended his own streak to nine games with a secondhalf sack. Fellow linemen Austin Johnson and Anthony Zettel also recorded a sack. Linebacker Jason Cabinda led the team with seven tackles. Additionally, 10 different Lions totaled nine tackles for loss for the 16th straight game with at least 5.0 TFLs. Hackenberg set a Penn State record with his 19th career 200plus yard passing game, totaling 266 yards and two touchdowns after completing 21-of-29 passing attempts. He also caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from running back Nick Scott, and left the game early in the fourth quarter with Penn State comfortably ahead. Hackenberg is the first Penn State quarterback with a touchdown catch since Zack Mills against Akron in 2004. In his last six games, Hackenberg has 12 touchdown passes, one touchdown reception, no interceptions and four games with at least 250 yards passing. Hackenberg’s top targets were Chris Godwin and DaeSean Hamilton. Godwin tied a career best with seven receptions, including one touchdown reception and a total of 76 yards. Hamilton had four catches, giving him 110 for his career and moving him into a tie with Bryant Johnson for ninth place at Penn State. Running back Saquon Barkley led the game with 142 allpurpose yards, rushing 20 times for 84 yards and a touchdown, while also catching a career-high three passes for a career-best 58 yards. Defensive back Clayton Fejedelem led Illinois with 13 tackles, a forced fumble and a blocked extra point. Quarterback Wes Lunt was held to 129 yards on 16-of-37 passing with one interception.

Penn State found the end zone on its second drive for the game’s first score. A career long 31-yard reception by DeAndre Thompkins moved the Nittany Lions into Illini territory, and a 19-yard reception by Barkley advanced the Lions to the Illinois 6. After a pair of rushes placed the ball on the 5, Hackenberg zipped a pass through traffic over the middle to Godwin with 5:52 remaining in the quarter. The extra point try was blocked. Lunt was intercepted at midfield on Illinois’ ensuing possession by Troy Reeder. It was the first pick of Reeder’s career and he returned it 44 yards to the Illinois 6. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Hackenberg lofted a pass to Lewis along the left sideline in the end zone, and Lewis leapt, pulled it down and got one foot in bounds for the touchdown. The extra point was blocked again though, giving Penn State a 12-0 lead with 4:16 remaining in the first quarter. Penn State forced an Illinois punt and drove into Illini territory early in the second quarter, but Thompkins was stripped of the football, ending the drive at the Illinois 37. Both teams would trade punts though until Tyler Davis converted a 42-yard field goal with 4:16 remaining in the half. Penn State would take a 15-0 lead into the locker room. The Nittany Lions would receive the kickoff to start the second half and Koa Farmer returned it from the end zone a career-long 57 yards to the Illinois 43, setting up a seven-play touchdown drive. The Lions converted a pair of third-and-longs on the drive as Hackenberg connected with Hamilton on 16-yard pass on third-and-10 from the 43, and again on a 19-yard pass on thirdand-16 from the 33. The latter set up a 14-yard touchdown pass by Scott to Hackenberg, who rolled out down the left sideline, wide open after handing off to Scott. It gave Penn State a 22-0 lead with 11:18 remaining in the third quarter and was the first reception by a Nittany Lion quarterback since Matt McGloin had a 16-yard catch from Curtis Drake against Nebraska in 2011, and the first touchdown reception by a quarterback since Zack Mills had an 18-yard touchdown reception from Michael Robinson in the 2004 season opener against Akron. Davis added a 28-yard field goal with 3:56 remaining in the quarter for a 25-0 lead, and Barkley capped a seven-play, 80yard touchdown drive with a 7-yard scoring run after hurdling Illinois defenders and losing a shoe at the goal line. Mark Allen added a career-long 20-yard touchdown run with 6:33 remaining for the final margin.

EVANSTON, Ill. - Defensive end Carl Nassib set Penn State’s single-season sack record with No. 15.5 of the year and Penn State rallied from a 13-point deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter, but a 35-yard field goal by Jack Mitchell with nine seconds remaining gave Northwestern a 23-21 victory over the Nittany Lions, Saturday in Ryan Field. Trailing 13-0 in the second quarter, Saquon Barkley scored the first of two touchdowns on the day from seven yards out, but Solomon Vault returned the kickoff for a touchdown. It was the last score for the Wildcats until Mitchell’s game-winning kick. A gadget play by the Nittany Lions cut the deficit to six with 5:04 remaining in the third quarter, as quarterback Christian Hackenberg pitched the ball to wide receiver Geno Lewis, who threw a perfect 32-yard pass to DaeSean Hamilton for a touchdown. Barkley Put the Lions ahead for the first time with 13:22 remaining, and he finished the day with 120 yards rushing on 25 carries and catching six passes for 50 more yards. Hackenberg went 21-of-40 passing for 205 yards with an interception, his first in 203 consecutive passing attempts. Wide receiver Chris Godwin had eight catches for 104 yards to lead all in the game. Northwestern quarterback Zack Oliver entered the game in relief and threw for a touchdown and ran for another. He completed 11-of-24 passing attempts for 111 yards, also throwing an interception. Running back Justin Jackson was a catalyst for Northwestern rushing for 186 yards on 28 attempts. The Penn State defense posted 10.0 tackles for loss, marking the seventh time this season and fourth straight game they recorded nine or more TFLs. Nassib also forced his sixth fumble of the season, the most forced by a Penn Stater since Michael Haynes forced seven in 2002. Defensive tackle Austin Johnson posted a career-high 10 tackles.

UNVERSITY PARK, Pa. - It was Senior Day inside of a Whited Out Beaver Stadium, but the Penn State football team couldn’t produce enough offense to topple Michigan in a 28-16 setback. There were 19 seniors honored prior to playing in their final home game in front of 107,418 white-clad supporters on a sun-splashed day inside of the nation’s second-largest stadium. Junior quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw for 137 yards with one touchdown pass. His lone touchdown toss was to Saeed Blacknall and pushed him into a tie atop Penn State’s career passing touchdowns list with the 46th in his career. He is now tied with Matt McGloin, who threw 46 scoring strikes from 2009-12. Hackenberg also became the first Nittany Lion quarterback to surpass the 8,000-yard passing mark, and in the process moved into the top spot on the career total yards ledger. Brandon Bell grabbed his first interception of the season and second of his career midway through the first quarter. He returned the pick 25 yards to the Michigan 40. In the third quarter, Bell forced his fourth career fumble and recovered the ball at the UM 42, which eventually led to a 24-yard field goal from Tyler Davis. Davis was successful on a career-high three field goals in the game. He connected on all three tries, converting from 23, 24 and 18 yards in the game. Junior tight end Brent Wilkerson set a career high with three receptions, accounting for 16 yards. Sophomore Chris Godwin also caught three passes, logging 51 yards, and moved into the top 20 in career receiving yardage with 1,180. Godwin also moved into a tie for No. 9 on the single season receptions list with his 52nd catch of the season, earning him a tie with Bobby Engram (1994). Defensively, junior Malik Golden – wearing No. 9 to honor injured senior safety Jordan Lucas – posted a career-high with eight stops. It is the second straight game Golden eclipsed his career-high, logging six stops at Northwestern Nov. 7. Sophomore Marcus Allen also registered a career high in the tackles column with 12 stops. He had collected 11 tackles on three occasions. Penn State scored first for the 11th time in its last 12 games after Saquon Barkley broke off a 56-yard rush to move the Nittany Lions down to the Michigan 9-yard line. After three run plays netted three yards, Davis connected on a 23-yard field goal to push Penn State ahead early, 3-0. Michigan responded with a six-play, 73-yard drive that was capped by a 26-yard touchdown pass from Jake Rudock to Jake Butt. Along with the touchdown pass, Rudock found Jehu Chesson for two completions, gaining seven and 39 yards, respectively.

The two teams remained scoreless until the 2:01 mark of the second quarter when Penn State logged its own six-play touchdown drive, this one covering 43 yards in 2:04. Hackenberg completed passes for five, nine and four yards to set up the scoring strike to Blacknall. On third-and-6 from the UM 29-yard line, Hackenberg threw a pass into the right corner of the south end zone that Blacknall came back to and made the jumping catch to push Penn State back in front, 10-7. The lead didn’t last long, as Michigan marched 70 yards on seven plays to recapture the lead, 14-10, with under one minute to play in the opening half. The Wolverines used passes of 26, 11 and 18 yards to move down to the Penn State 11-yard line. Rudock then found Amara Darboh on a wide receiver screen for an 11-yard score. A muffed punt by Penn State helped the Wolverines build a 21-10 lead with 6:07 left in the third quarter. After Michigan took over at the Penn State 9-yard line, they used a six-yard gain by Jabrill Peppers and a two-yard rush by De’Veon Smith set up third-and-goal from the PSU one. Sione Houma took the handoff on third down and bulled his way into the end zone for the score. Bell was the catalyst on Penn State’s third scoring drive of the game, coming away with a sack-fumble of Rudock, a fumble which he recovered at the Michigan 42. After gaining just one yard on the first three plays of the drive, Hackenberg found Godwin streaking down the middle of the field. Godwin made the catch at the 20-yard line and drug a pair of Michigan defenders down to the UM three. The Lions were unable to find the end zone on the first three plays of the fourth quarter and Davis connected on his second field goal of the day, this one from 24 yards. The Nittany Lions marched 62 yards on 10 plays to draw within five points on another Davis field goal, this time from 18 yards out. On the drive, Hackenberg rushed for 17 yards on a big third-and-14 play to keep the drive alive. He then found Barkley for a 14-yard catch-and-run, before Brandon Polk rushed for five yards to take the ball inside the UM 2-yard line. After an incomplete pass in the end zone, Davis came on to convert his third kick of the day. The final scoring drive came from the visiting sideline on the next drive. After a 55-yard return of the kickoff by Jourdan Lewis, Michigan benefited from a pass interference call and Peppers ran for five yards to take the ball down to the Penn State 1-yard line. From there, Smith drove over the pile for the 1-yard rushing touchdown and a 28-16 lead for Michigan.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Penn State gained 418 yards of offense, Chris Godwin caught a career-high 11 passes, Christian Hackenberg set the school’s career record for touchdown passes and Saquon Barkley became the Nittany Lions all-time leading freshman rusher, but turnovers proved costly as No. 5 Michigan State claimed the regular season finale, 55-16, Saturday in Spartan Stadium. Hackenberg completed 22-of-39 passes for 257 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted twice, including in the end zone on the team’s first possession. Michigan State was able score a touchdown on the ensuing drive, and later Demetrious Cox returned a fumble 77 yards for a touchdown and 20-3 lead late in the first half. Godwin caught an 8-yard touchdown reception with 35 seconds remaining in the half, but that was as close as Penn State would come. Godwin finished with 11 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns. His second score would come at the start of the fourth quarter to make it 34-16, but Michigan State added three more touchdowns, including an interception return of 13 yards for a touchdown by Malik McDowell. DaeSean Hamilton added eight catches for 78 yards. Barkley rushed for 103 yards on 17 carries, giving him a freshman-record 1,007 for the season. Hackenberg’s two touchdown passes gave him 48 for his career, making him the sole record holder at Penn State. Safety Malik Golden made a career-high nine tackles after setting a career high of eight the previous week against Michigan. Freshman linebacker Manny Bowen forced his first career fumble in the fourth quarter and defensive tackle Tarow Barney had his first career fumble recovery on the same play. Barney was made his first career start, becoming the 14th Nittany Lion to make his first career start this season. Defensive backs John Reid and Troy Apke tied their career highs for tackles with five each. The Nittany Lions were held without a sack for the first time since the UCF game in 2013.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Facing a 21-point deficit in the third quarter, Penn State rallied to come within a touchdown of Georgia, but the Nittany Lions ran out of time as the Bulldogs held on, 24-17, to win the 71st annual TaxSlayer Bowl Saturday afternoon in EverBank Field. Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin became the school’s career leader in bowl receiving yards and just the second to surpass 1,100 receiving yards in a season. Leading 24-17, Georgia (10-3) tried to ice the game with less than two minutes remaining by going for it on fourth-and-2 from the Penn State 23. Jason Cabinda and Garrett Sickels stuffed Georgia’s Keith Marshall for a 2-yard loss, giving the Nittany Lions (7-6) a chance to tie the game with a touchdown and extra point with 1:52 remaining. Redshirt freshman quarterback Trace McSorely, who entered the game midway through the second quarter after quarterback Christian Hackenberg left with an injury, led the Nittany Lions to the Georgia 39 with eight seconds remaining, but his Hail Mary pass attempt was batted down near the goal line. McSorely finished completing 14-of-27 pass attempts for 142 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing seven times for 31 yards. Running back Saquon Barkley totaled 69 yards on 17 carries. Godwin caught six passes for 133 yards, giving the sophomore 273 receiving yards between the 2014 Pinstripe and 2016 TaxSlayer Bowls for a new school record. He finished the season with 1,101 receiving yards, ranking second only to Allen Robinson’s 2013 effort (1,432 yards). Georgia took a 24-3 lead on a Sony Michel touchdown run with 4:15 remaining in the third quarter, but the Lions started their rally on the next drive, scoring their first touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter on fourth down, capping a 10-play, 75yard touchdown drive. A 21-yard completion to Godwin on thirdand-6 moved the Lions to midfield and a 29-yard rush by Barkley to the Georgia 15 set up the drive. Facing fourth-and-7 though, a false start penalty backed PSU to the 17, but McSorely found Geno Lewis just inside the right sideline in the end zone following the final quarter break. Both teams would punt and Penn State forced another Bulldog punt before finding the end zone again. A 20-yard run by Barkley started the seven-play drive, and a leaping catch by DaeSean Hamilton for a 20-yard touchdown capped it with 6:14 remaining. Georgia was able to run 4:15 off the clock on its ensuing possession, and withstood Penn State’s final rally.

Hackenberg completed 8-of-14 passing attempts for 139 yards with one interception before leaving the game. He threw for 510 yards in his two bowl games, good for No. 3 on the Penn State career bowl list. In addition to his touchdown, Hamilton caught five passes for 71 yards. Penn State outgained Georgia, 401-327 in total offense. Linebacker Brandon Bell led the defense with 11 tackles, while Austin Johnson and Anthony Zettel each recorded a sack. Penn State received the opening kickoff and advanced from its own 17 into Georgia territory with three consecutive doubledigit passing completions by Hackenberg. The drive stalled after a pair of runs for no gain, and Hackenberg was intercepted by Dominick Sanders on a short pass under pressure that bounced off Barkley’s hands on third and 18. The Bulldogs started at their own 47 and gained 26 yards on seven plays to set up a successful 44-yard field goal attempt with 7:02 remaining in the first quarter. The remainder of the quarter would be scoreless as both teams would punt on their next three possessions. Godwin set up a field goal drive in the second quarter with big receptions of 19 and 51 yards. The 51-yarder moved Penn State to the Georgia 18. Tyler Davis converted a 34 yard field goal with 8:08 remaining in the half. Georgia answered in just three plays on its next drive though. McKenzie broke a 26-yard run to the Penn State 46 on the first play, and then following a 2-yard rush by Michel, wide receiver Terry Godwin threw deep to Malcolm Mitchell on a trick play for a 44-yard touchdown with 6:46 remaining in the half. The Nittany Lions went three-and-out and failed to convert on a fake punt, giving Georgia the ball on the Penn State 46. Both teams traded three-and-outs again, giving the Bulldogs the ball at their own 42 with 1:54 remaining in the half. They drove 58 yards in seven plays for a touchdown, as Lambert capped the drive with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Terry Godwin with 24 seconds remaining in the half for a 17-3 lead. Both teams punted following their first drives of the second half. McKenzie returned Penn State’s punt 37 yards to the Penn State 23, to setup Georgia’s second drive of the half, but a sack by Anthony Zettel backed the Bulldogs to the 31, forcing a 48yard field goal attempt that sailed wide left. A 19-yard completion to Godwin on third down moved the Lions into Bulldog territory, but Penn State turned the ball over on downs at the 44. Michel then capped a seven-play, 56-yard touchdown drive with a 21-yard scoring run with 4:15 remaining in the third quarter.

1923 ROSE: January 1, 1923

Penn State fought a gallant fight, but Southern California was just too strong in a 14-3 victory in the 1923 Rose Bowl, the Nittany Lions’ first post-season game. The Trojans bounced back from an early 3-0 Penn State lead to post the win. The 29-member Penn State travel party departed State College by train on December 19 and, after stops in Chicago and the Grand Canyon, arrived in Pasadena on Christmas Eve. The morning of the game, the team took in the Tournament of Roses Parade, then returned to its hotel. The Lions left in several taxi cabs at 11 a.m. for the Rose Bowl, but as the 2:15 p.m. kickoff approached, the team was mired in post-parade traffic. Only after the cabbies drove over the lawns of local residents did the Penn State contingent finally reach the Rose Bowl. When the team arrived, they found kickoff had already been delayed by 10 minutes. Penn State coach Hugo Bezdek and USC coach “Gloomy Gus” Henderson almost came to blows as the Lions’ skipper successfully lobbied game officials for additional warmup time. The game finally started an hour late and ended in moonlight, with sportswriters lighting matches in order to finish their stories. Even with the 60-minute delay, many of the 43,000 spectators did not reach their seats until the second quarter. Penn State took an early 3-0 lead on Mike Palm’s 20-yard drop-kick field goal, but Roy “Bullet” Baker rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown for the Trojans and the Lions were held to five first downs and 104 yards. Penn State’s share of the proceeds — $21,349.64 — was directed toward the $2 million Emergency Building Fund and in particular the construction of Varsity Hall (now Irvin Hall).

1948 COTTON: January 1, 1948

Penn State climaxed a 25-year climb back to national prominence with a 13-13 tie against Southern Methodist in the Cotton Bowl. Unheralded quarterback Elwood Petchel matched SMU All-American Doak Walker yard-for-yard as the Lions rallied from 13-0 back and had several chances to win the game. Petchel threw for scores in the second and third quarters and nearly had a third at the end of the game, when a defender tipped away the ball at the last second. In the third quarter the Lions tied the game at 13 and Ed Czekaj’s PAT kick appeared to be good, but was ruled no good by a hesitating referee. The Lions outgained SMU 258 to 206, but two lost fumbles hurt their chances. Petchel completed seven of 15 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Fran Rogel gained 95 yards on 25 carries, easily out-rushing Walker. Because two Lions, Wally Triplett and Dennie Hoggard, were African-American, none of the Dallas hotels would allow the team to stay in their facilities, forcing the squad to stay at a Naval Air Station 14 miles from Dallas. Coach Bob Higgins’ squad finished 9-0-1, won its first Lambert Trophy and was No. 4 in the Associated Press poll.

1959 LIBERTY: December 19, 1959

Coach Rip Engle took the advice of veteran bowl participant Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech and installed some new plays to keep his Penn State team busy for the 1959 Liberty Bowl. That advice paid off as Penn State scored on a fake field goal play to upend Alabama, 7-0, in the inaugural Liberty Bowl in Philadelphia. The play came in the final seconds of the first half with Galen Hall passing 18 yards to Roger Kochman for the score. Game conditions at Municipal Stadium (later renamed JFK Stadium) were less than ideal and Penn State’s defense made the points stand up. Directed by quarterback Richie Lucas, the Maxwell Award winner and Heisman Trophy runnerup, the Lions’ offense completely dominated the game, outgaining Coach Bear Bryant’s Crimson Tide 319 to 131, including a 278 to 104 edge on the ground. The victory was the first bowl win for the Nittany Lions, improving their postseason mark to 1-1-1. Penn State has not been below the .500 mark in bowl games since the historic win.

1960 LIBERTY: December 17, 1960

Penn State’s second team — the “Reddie” unit — proved the value of depth as the Nittany Lions rolled over Oregon, 41-12, for their second straight Liberty Bowl win in as many years. Twenty-one unanswered points in the second quarter gave the Lions a lead they would not relinquish on a cold, windy day in Philadelphia. Oregon’s long first-quarter TD drive produced an early lead, but quarterback Dick Hoak and his second unit marched for two scores, while quarterback Galen Hall led another in the second quarter for a 21-6 halftime bulge. The Ducks scored in the third quarter, but again the Reddie unit produced three TDs in the fourth quarter. Hoak enjoyed an outstanding day on defense as well as running and passing on offense. He ran for 61 yards and two scores on nine carries; and completed three of five passes for 67 yards and a TD strike. It was the running game that was the difference as the Lions outgained Oregon 301 to 187 and 420 to 360 overall. The 420 yards of total offense was a school bowl record until 1975. The Lions also forced four turnovers. Oregon Penn State

Penn State justified its selection as the Lambert Trophy winner with a decisive 30-15 victory over Georgia Tech, notching its third straight bowl victory in as many years in its first post-season game in the South. Despite three early-season losses, the Lions downed the Yellow Jackets, who had allowed only 4.4 points a game, registering four shutouts. Galen Hall threw three touchdown passes as Penn State rallied from a 9-0 deficit. The Nittany Lion defenders caused five turnovers and took advantage of a misfired fake punt and an interception to put the game away with 10 fourth-quarter points. All-America end Dave Robinson made a stunning play midway through the third quarter and with the Lions leading 14-9, leaping over two blockers and forcing quarterback Stan Gann to fumble, which Robinson recovered at the Jackets’ 35yard line. Hall struck quickly, tossing a 35-yard scoring strike to Junior Powell. The Jackets carried the day statistically (outgaining Penn State 412 to 313), but special teams play for Penn State was critical as Yellow Jacket errors and a superb Lion punting game (eight punts for a 41.0 yard average) helped offset Georgia Tech’s rushing game. Hall was superb, hitting 12 of 22 passes for 175 yards and three touchdowns to earn game MVP honors. Georgia Tech 2 7 0 6 — 15 Penn State 0 14 6 10 — 30

Penn State posted a 9-1 regular-season in 1962, losing by three points at Army, and was ranked No. 9 in the final Associated Press poll, earning its second straight Lambert Trophy. But, the Lions were snubbed from a New Year’s Day bowl and accepted an invitation to play in the Gator Bowl for the second consecutive year, facing unranked, 6-4 Florida. The Lions managed only eight first downs and 147 yards and lost to the Gators, 17-7. Except for a 76-yard touchdown march culminated by Pete Liske’s one-yard TD run in the second period, Rip Engle’s squad didn’t slightly resemble the offensive terror that had swept its last six games, scoring 164 points in the process. Florida quarterback Tommy Shannon completed seven of nine passes for 79 yards and two scores and mixed his plays to befuddle the big Penn State defense. The Gators added the longest field goal in Gator Bowl history and forced five turnovers to snap the Lions’ twogame bowl winning streak. The best experience of this post-season may have been the squad’s trip to the White House where they gave President John F. Kennedy a Nittany Lion statue. The Lions practiced for more than a week at the U.S. Naval Academy before encountering difficult travel from Harrisburg to Jacksonville, having to bus to Pittsburgh and land in Orlando due to poor weather conditions in Pennsylvania and Florida.

Penn State led for 59 minutes and 45 seconds, but Florida State rallied from a 17-0 deficit and kicked a field goal with 15 seconds remaining to earn a 17-17 tie in the Gator Bowl. The Nittany Lions did all their scoring in the first half, thanks largely to quarterback Tom Sherman. He kicked a 27-yard field goal in the first period and then threw touchdown passes to Jack Curry and Ted Kwalick for a 17-0 bulge at halftime. Early in the second half, the Lions stopped the Seminoles on downs at the Penn State five-yard line. Three rushes by Charlie Pittman appeared to give Penn State a first down, but the measurement came up six inches short. In his first bowl game as head coach, Joe Paterno decided to go for it, but Sherman’s fourthdown sneak was short. Florida State quarterback Kim Hammond tossed a 20-yard scoring pass to Ron Sellers soon after to swing the momentum. Hammond was 37-of-53 passing for 362 yards, with four interceptions, while Sellers had 14 receptions for 145 yards. After the game, Paterno told the Philadelphia Inquirer, “I may be rationalizing, but in the long run that fourth-down call may be the best thing I ever did for Penn State football.”

1969 ORANGE: January 1, 1969 “There was no way Penn State could win...The last two minutes were pure unadulterated insanity.” — Pittsburgh Press The Nittany Lions posted perhaps the school’s most dramatic victory with an unbelievable 15-14 win over sixth-ranked Kansas in the 1969 Orange Bowl. In the final 1:16 seconds of the game, Penn State turned what appeared to be a Jayhawk victory into an incredible cap to an 11-0 season and the No. 2 national ranking. With Kansas leading, 14-7, with 10 minutes to play, Jayhawk coach Pepper Rodgers passed on a field goal from the Penn State five-yard line and running back John Riggins was stopped on fourth-and-one by Paul and Pete Johnson, keeping the Lions within a touchdown. The game took on legendary status in the last two minutes after Penn State was forced to punt. The Lions had all three timeouts left and used them well. After tackle Mike Reid dropped quarterback Bobby Douglass for 13 yards in losses on consecutive plays of Kansas’ final offensive series, Penn State helped its cause when Neal Smith partially blocked the punt, providing one last opportunity from the 50 yard-line with 1:16 left. Quarterback Chuck Burkhart connected with Bob Campbell on a 47-yard pass to the Kansas three, just as Kansas running back Donnie Shanklin was being announced as the game MVP. After fullback Tom Cherry tried the middle twice, Burkhart faked a handoff to Charlie Pittman and carried around the left end for the touchdown with just eight seconds remaining. Never one fond of ties, Joe Paterno elected to go for the win, but Burkhart’s two-point pass to Campbell was knocked away and the Kansas players began to celebrate with fans who were coming onto the field. But, a penalty had been called on the Jayhawks for 12 men on the field and, as game films would later reveal, Kansas had 12 men on the field for four plays, including Burkhart’s touchdown. Presented with a second opportunity, this time from the one-and-a-half-yard line, Campbell swept around the left side and into the end zone for the scintillating 15-14 victory as Penn State became the first Eastern school to win the Orange Bowl since 1937.

1970 ORANGE: January 1, 1970

If ever a defense won a bowl game, it happened in the 1970 Orange Bowl as Penn State repeatedly slammed the door on Missouri’s highly-touted offense for a 10-3 victory. It was a superlative performance by the Lion defenders as they led Penn State to its second straight Orange Bowl victory, its 22nd straight win and its 30th consecutive game without defeat. But, a second straight 11-0 campaign again earned the Lions the No. 2 national ranking, not their first National Championship. Having already voted to play in the Orange Bowl, the fifth-ranked Lions saw No. 1 Ohio State lose to Michigan, leaving the winner between unbeatens Texas and Arkansas as the likely new No. 1. President Richard Nixon was in attendance in Austin and after the Longhorns’ 15-14 win, declared Texas national champions, much to the chagrin and outrage of Joe Paterno, his squad and Nittany Lion fans. With the controversy about Number One still being debated, the Nittany Lion defense was outstanding in stopping the Big Eight champions. Nineteen times the powerful Missouri offense got possession of the ball and nine times the Lion defenders forced a turnover, intercepting seven passes and recovering two fumbles. The seven interceptions remain an Orange Bowl record, bettering the six turned in by Georgia against TCU in the 1942 contest, as well as being tied for the secondhighest ever for any bowl game. All of Penn State’s scoring came within a 21-second span late in the first quarter, with Mike Reitz kicking a 29yard field goal with 3:44 remaining and Chuck Burkhart passing moments later to Lydell Mitchell for a 28-yard touchdown. The second score was set up after AllAmerican Mike Reid jarred the ball loose from Missouri’s Joe Moore on the kickoff and Mike Smith recovered the fumble. Burkhart completed 11 of 26 passes for 187 yards to earn Most Valuable Back honors, while Reid was chosen Most Valuable Lineman. Missouri connected on a 33-yard field goal late in the first half and reached the Penn State 14-yard line with 1:42 to play. But, George Landis grabbed his second interception of the game at the two and the Lions remained unbeaten in their 30th straight game, tying the school mark set from 1920-22. Missouri Penn State

1972 COTTON: January 1, 1972

Stung by a season-ending loss at Tennessee, Penn State looked at the 1972 Cotton Bowl as an opportunity to redeem itself and make a statement to the college football nation. With the No. 1 snub of 1969 not far removed, the game with Texas would provide a great opportunity for the Nittany Lions to earn some national respect. In what some considered a “must” win for the rising national powerhouse, Penn State blitzed highly-touted Texas, 306, for its third straight major bowl victory. Neither team was able to do much in a sluggish first half that wound up with Texas holding a 6-3 edge. The Longhorns had moved the ball from their famed Wishbone offense early in the contest, but the Penn State defense began to take control as the game wore on. The second half was all Penn State. The Lions took the lead for the first time early in the third quarter after Charlie Zapiec recovered a fumble at the Texas 41-yard line. A 19-yard run by Lydell Mitchell and a 19-yard pass from John Hufnagel to tight end Bob Parsons helped the Lions reach the Texas one. Mitchell followed a block by All-American Dave Joyner for the game’s first touchdown. The game-breaker came the next time the Lions got the ball. On second down from their 35-yard line, Hufnagel faked to Mitchell and lofted a pass to split end Scott Skarzynski dashing alone down the right sideline for a 17-6 lead. Alberto Vitiello added two more field goals and Hufnagel scored on a four-yard run, as the Lions controlled the ball for 13 minutes in the fourth quarter. Defensive end Bruce Bannon was voted the Outstanding Defensive Player-of-the-Game, although it was a team effort that held the Longhorns to 242 yards and without a touchdown for the first time in 80 games. Mitchell was an overwhelming choice as the game’s Outstanding Offensive Player, as the All-American capped his brilliant career with 146 yards in 27 carries and one score. “It is one of the greatest victories in Penn State history,” stated a joyous Joe Paterno. “I don’t think we’ve ever had a game that we had to win more than this one.” Texas Penn State

1972 SUGAR: December 31, 1972

Penn State was matched against one of the nation’s top teams in the 1972 Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Eve, and while battling No. 2 Oklahoma throughout the game, fell 14-0, snapping a three-game bowl win streak. The game did not get off to a good start when the Lions learned just hours before kickoff that leading rusher John Cappelletti had a virus and a 102-degree temperature and would be unable to play. Without Cappelletti’s ball-control running, the defense spent a great deal of time on the field. As it turned out, the Lion defenders did a spectacular job against one of the nation’s most explosive offenses, holding the Sooners’ Wishbone attack to just 14 points. Oklahoma out-gained Penn State 453 to 196, including 278 to 49 on the ground, but the stingy Lion defense forced eight Sooner fumbles, five of which Penn State recovered. Several weeks after the game, Oklahoma was discovered to have used two ineligible freshmen players and the NCAA forced the Sooners to forfeit the games the players had participated in. Joe Paterno and school athletic officials refused to accept the win. Prior to that revelation, Paterno accepted an offer to become the Boston Patriots’ head coach and general manager four days after the Sugar Bowl, but changed his mind the following night.

1974 ORANGE: January 1, 1974

1975 COTTON: January 1, 1975

For the third time in six seasons, Penn State found itself in the Orange Bowl attempting to complete a perfect season. And, as they did in the 1969 and 1970 Orange Bowls, the Nittany Lions rose to the occasion. Louisiana State provided stiff competition, but a hardfought 16-9 win over the Tigers put the finishing touches on Penn State’s first 12-0 campaign. The Tigers took the opening kickoff and quickly scored on a three-yard run by Steve Rogers. The Lion defense made a few adjustments and LSU’s only other points came on a safety when Penn State punter Brian Masella downed a bad snap in his own end zone in the third quarter. Chris Bahr got Penn State on the scoreboard with a 44-yard field goal in the first quarter. The Nittany Lions grabbed control in the second period, sparked by Chuck Herd, who made a brilliant one-hand catch of a Tom Shuman pass on the LSU 20-yard line and ran it in to complete a memorable 72-yard score. The Lions continued their surge moments later when Gary Hayman, the nation’s leading punt returner in 1973, returned a punt 36 yards to the LSU 25-yard line. Heisman Trophy winner John Cappelletti vaulted over from one yard out for a 16-7 halftime edge. Despite being one of only three unbeaten, untied teams entering the bowls, Penn State was ranked No. 5 in the Associated Press poll and the Sugar Bowl matchup between unbeatens Alabama and Notre Dame was being touted as the game for the national title.

Penn State completed a 10-2 season with a recordsetting 41-20 victory over Southwest Conference champion Baylor in the Cotton Bowl. Joe Paterno’s Nittany Lions came from behind for the fifth time in its 10 wins, erasing a 7-3 halftime deficit with a 38-point second-half explosion for a Cotton Bowl record 41 points. Quarterback Tom Shuman and fullback Tom Donchez, the mainstays of the offense all season, led the record-breaking efforts. Shuman completed 10 of 20 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown and added 14 yards and another score on the ground. Donchez carried 25 times for 116 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 50 yards. Freshman Jimmy Cefalo also contributed greatly to the victory, rushing for 55 yards, catching three passes for 102 yards and scoring two touchdowns. It was a close game as the third quarter ended, with Penn State holding a 17-14 edge. Three straight scores — a three-yard run by Cefalo, a 33-yard field goal by Chris Bahr and a two-yard run by Shuman — gave the Lions an insurmountable 34-14 lead. Shuman earned his second-straight post-season award, grabbing the Outstanding Offensive Player award as he led Penn State to what still is a school bowl record 491 yards of total offense.

1975 SUGAR: December 31, 1975

Penn State and Alabama made history in the first Sugar Bowl played in the newly-constructed Louisiana Superdome, with a capacity crowd of 75,212 on hand. The contest also was the first of four meetings between Joe Paterno and Paul “Bear” Bryant, two of only five Division I-A coaches with at least 300 career wins. The game was typical of the Nittany Lions’ 9-3 season, featuring outstanding defense and kicking. Alabama managed the only touchdown of the game, a 14-yard run by Mike Stock in the third quarter, which was enough to allow the Tide to pull out a 13-6 victory. Chris Bahr, the Lions’ record-setting placekicker, accounted for all of Penn State’s scoring with a 42-yard field goal in the third period and a 37-yarder early in the final quarter. Alabama specialist Danny Ridgeway countered Bahr’s boots with field goals of 25 and 28 yards. Bahr’s first field goal with 4:33 left in the third quarter tied the game at 3-3, but Alabama came right back with an 80-yard drive for what proved to be the winning touchdown. The game wasn’t decided until Alabama stopped the Lions on a fourth-and-one try from the Penn State 39-yard line with 1:19 to play. Alabama Penn State

1976 GATOR: December 27, 1976

Meeting Notre Dame for the first time since 1928, a 3-0 turnover deficit proved to be Penn State’s undoing as the Irish posted a 20-9 victory. It was apparent in the early going that the teams were evenly matched and breaks would be the determining factor. After Penn State took an early 3-0 lead that Notre Dame erased with a first-quarter touchdown, the Irish used a turnover and solid offense to outscore the Lions, 13-0, in the second period, cruise to a 20-3 halftime lead and never relinquish their hold. Penn State out-gained the Irish, 274-273, led by the rushing tandem of Bob Torrey and Matt Suhey. Quarterback Chuck Fusina hit 14 of 33 passes for 118 yards, including Penn State’s only touchdown, an eightyard strike to Suhey in the fourth quarter. Jimmy Cefalo made five catches for 60 yards and had three carries for 18 yards to earn Penn State Outstanding Player-ofthe-Game honors. All-America linebacker Kurt Allerman made a game-high 16 tackles. Notre Dame Penn State

1977 FIESTA: December 25, 1977

A then-record Fiesta Bowl crowd was treated to an exciting shootout between two of the nation’s finest teams, with Penn State winning the showdown against hometown Arizona State, 42-30, to cap an 11-1 season. The Lions won their first of six Fiesta Bowls (without a loss), with an opportunistic kicking game, a grinding second-half running game, an alert defense and some big plays by Jimmy Cefalo. Penn State led, 17-14, at halftime despite being held to 45 yards rushing. Joe Lally returned a blocked punt 21 yards for the first Lion touchdown, the fifth score by the punt return team in 1977. A 67-yard punt return by Cefalo then set up a 23-yard field goal by Matt Bahr. Penn State scored the third quarter’s only touchdown and out-slugged the Devils, 18-16, in a furious fourth quarter, with Matt Suhey’s two-yard TD run with three minutes left providing some breathing room. Steve Geise led all rushers with 111 yards, while Bob Torrey added 107 on only nine carries, marking the only time Penn State has had two runners crack the century mark in a bowl. Suhey added 76 yards, helping the Lions to a 268-90 edge on the ground. Matt Millen made 18 tackles to capture Outstanding Defensive Player honors. Arizona State Penn State

1979 SUGAR: January 1, 1979

A goal-line stand by Alabama in the fourth quarter was the key in depriving Penn State of its first national championship. The Lions, 11-0 during the regularseason and ranked first in the polls entering the Sugar Bowl in the Louisiana Superdome, twice came up short from inside the one-yard line as No. 2 Alabama hung on for a 14-7 win and the national title. In one of the greatest defensive games ever played for the national title, the hitting was ferocious on both sides. Alabama posted the first half’s only score with eight seconds left, on a 30-yard pass from Jeff Rutledge to Bruce Bolton, who made what appeared to be a diving, spectacular catch in the end zone for a 7-0 halftime lead. Photographs and video would later reveal the ball had bounced on the turf before Bolton caught it. The Lions capitalized midway through the third quarter. Pete Harris intercepted a Rutledge pass on the Alabama 48-yard line and Chuck Fusina passed 17 yards to Scott Fitzkee to tie the score. But, ‘Bama’s Lou Inker returned a punt 62 yards to the Penn State 11 and Major Ogilvie’s eight-yard TD run gave the Tide a 14-7 lead later in the stanza. With about seven minutes to play, Matt Millen forced a fumble which Joe Lally recovered at the Alabama 19. On second-and-goal at the six, Fusina hit Fitzkee near the flag, but as he turned to cross the goal line, Don McNeal knocked him out two feet from the stripe. Matt Suhey’s dive on third down was six inches short and on fourth down, Mike Guman was stopped short by Barry Krauss and the Tide defense in one of the memorable defensive stands in college football history. On Penn State’s final possession, the Nittany Lions drove to the Alabama 41-yard line, but the Tide defense held again to seal the win. Alabama Penn State

1979 LIBERTY: December 22, 1979

Herb Menhardt’s 20-yard field goal with 18 seconds remaining lifted Penn State to a 9-6 win over Tulane in the 21st Annual Liberty Bowl in Memphis. The win was the first in a string of five consecutive bowl victories for the Nittany Lions. After a scoreless first quarter, the Penn State offense got untracked early in the second period. Quarterback Frank Rocco directed the Lions on a 13-play, 68-yard drive that culminated with a 33-yard Menhardt field goal for a 3-0 lead. Rocco was starting for the first time in 1979, replacing 11-game starter Dayle Tate, who suffered a shoulder injury in the Pittsburgh game earlier in the month. A 63-yard drive culminated in a 27-yard Menhardt trey later in the period for a 6-0 halftime lead. Tulane tied the game with a pair of fourth-quarter field goals, the latter coming with less than three minutes to play. With just under 50 seconds left and the Lions at the 50, assistant coach Bob Phillips suggested a halfback option, which worked to near perfection. Rocco pitched out to Joel Coles, who pulled up on a sweep around the left side and threw a 39-yard pass to a wide open Tom Donovan, to set up Menhardt’s game-winner. Penn State out-gained Tulane 337 to 202 and limited the Green Wave to minus-eight yards rushing. Matt Suhey posted a 19-carry, 112-yard day for the Lions.

1980 FIESTA: December 26, 1980

Buoyed by a field goal in the final 10 seconds of the first half, Penn State played a superb second half in a satisfying 31-19 victory over Ohio State in Fiesta Bowl X in front of a record crowd of 66,738. The contest remains the Lions’ only bowl game against a Big Ten opponent. After Curt Warner’s 64-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game, Ohio State used Art Schlichter’s super passing to grab a 19-7 lead before Herb Menhardt’s 38-yard field goal with eight seconds left in the half made it 19-10. Schlichter was 15-of-22 for 244 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. Like many Joe Paterno teams in bowl games, the Lions made adjustments at the break and dominated the second half. On their first possession of the third quarter, Todd Blackledge directed a 75-yard drive, scoring from three yards to cut the lead to 19-17. After holding the Buckeyes to zero yards in the third stanza, Jon Williams scored on a four-yard run early in the final quarter and Booker Moore’s 37-yard run climaxed an 85-yard drive and sealed the 10-2 campaign. Schlichter was 5-of-13 for 58 yards in the second half as the Lions frustrated Earl Bruce’s squad. Penn State outgained the Buckeyes 468 to 412, including a school bowl record 351 yards rushing. Warner had 18 carries for 155 yards, to establish a Nittany Lion bowl record, and one touchdown to earn the Outstanding Offensive Player Award and Frank Case earned both the Outstanding Defensive Player and Sportsmanship awards.

1982 FIESTA: January 1, 1982

Penn State rode its rugged defense to a dominating 26-10 victory over Southern California in the first Fiesta Bowl game played on New Year’s Day. Making its second consecutive appearance in Tempe, Penn State held the Trojans to 60 yards rushing and only three offensive points in the win. Curt Warner stole the spotlight from USC’s Heisman Trophy-winning running back Marcus Allen, gaining 145 yards with two touchdowns to Allen’s 85 yards on 30 carries and no touchdowns, his lowest output of the season. For the second straight year in Tempe, Warner scored the first time he touched the ball, reaching paydirt from 17 yards out for a 7-0 lead as he became the only player to be selected the Fiesta’s Offensive Player-ofthe-Game two straight years. A 52-yard scoring strike from Todd Blackledge to Gregg Garrity gave the Lions the lead for good in the second quarter and Warner added a 21-yard scoring burst in the third. The Lions outgained the Trojans 393 to 262, recording 11 tackles for loss, including six sacks. Penn State concluded a 10-2 season and earned the No. 3 national ranking, playing opponents with a cumulative record of 82-37-2 (68.6), including six teams ranked among the nation’s top 20.

1983 SUGAR: January 1, 1983

A mid-year loss to Alabama could have proven devastating, but instead, Penn State rallied to win its last six games, rising to No. 2 in the polls, and garnering a national title matchup with unbeaten and No. 1 Georgia in the 1983 Sugar Bowl. The Sugar Bowl had not been kind to Penn State with the Lions going 0-3 in New Orleans, but on this day those prior games were forgotten, as Penn State defeated the Bulldogs, 27-23, to post an 11-1 record and earn its first National Championship after several near-misses under Joe Paterno. Penn State jumped to a 7-0 lead, scoring in the first three minutes of the game. On consecutive plays, Todd Blackledge drilled a 33-yard pass to Mike McCloskey and found Gregg Garrity for 27 yards to the Georgia nine-yard line. Curt Warner’s two-yard run around left end gave the Lions a lead they would not relinquish. Following a Georgia field goal, treys of 38 and 45 yards by Nick Gancitano sandwiched a nine-yard Warner TD run for a 20-3 lead with less than a minute left in the half. The Bulldogs responded with just five seconds remaining in the half on a 10-yard TD pass to Herman Archie. Georgia then took the second-half kickoff and drove 69 yards to score on Herschel Walker’s one-yard run, to cut the margin to 20-17. With Warner bothered by leg cramps, the offense struggled in the third period, but early in the fourth quarter Blackledge faked to Warner and threw a perfect 47-yard strike to Garrity, who made a sensational diving catch in the end zone. The play, featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, will forever be remembered as one of the glorious moments in Penn State history. A fumbled punt set up a Georgia touchdown with 4:54 to play, but the Lion defense stuffed Walker on the twopoint try to make the score 27-23. With two minutes left, Blackledge found Garrity for a first down on third down and the Lions ran out the clock, hoisting Paterno on their shoulders with his right index finger raised in another of the significant moments in Lion history. “Penn State No. 1!” shouted long-time Nittany Lion radio announcer Fran Fisher to his audience, trying to be heard above the din of the delirious blue and white clad fans who were finally able to celebrate a National Championship. For the second consecutive bowl, Warner outgained the Heisman Trophy winner, rushing for 117 yards on 18 attempts and two scores, gaining 63 gutsy yards in the second half despite the leg cramps, while Walker tallied 103 yards on 28 carries. Blackledge was 13-of-23 for 228 yards to earn MVP honors. Georgia Penn State

1983 ALOHA: December 26, 1983

Penn State tied an NCAA record with its fifth consecutive bowl victory, edging Washington, 13-10, in the 1983 Aloha Bowl, thanks to excellent punting, outstanding defense and a clutch fourth-quarter scoring drive. The defense held potent Washington without a touchdown, but Danny Greene’s 57-yard punt return for a score midway through the second quarter loomed as the key play of the game, with the Huskies holding a 10-3 lead at the start of the final quarter. Lion punter George Reynolds, whose 47.7-yard punting average on seven kicks earned him Defensive Player-of-the-Game honors, booted a 50-yard punt to the Washington 16 late in the third quarter. The defense held and the offense answered with Nick Gancitano’s 49-yard field goal to trail, 10-6, early in the final stanza. Reynolds’ next punt went to the Washington six, the defense held again, and after the ensuing punt to the Penn State 38, Kevin Baugh handed off to Kenny Jackson on a reverse for one first down. Doug Strang then hit Baugh for 16 yards to the Huskie four and tailback D.J. Dozier took the pitch over the right side for a two-yard touchdown with three minutes to play for a 13-10 victory. The Lions gained just 213 yards, but the defense held the Huskies to 279 and Reynolds’ punting proved to be a key in keeping Penn State in the game. Washington Penn State

1986 ORANGE: January 1, 1986

Oklahoma’s defense turned in an outstanding effort and the Sooners made two big offensive plays for a 2510 victory over Penn State in the 1985 Orange Bowl’s national title battle. The Nittany Lions, 11-0 and No. 1, also played well defensively against Oklahoma’s wishbone, allowing just 12 first downs. The No. 2 Sooners relied on the big play — a 71-yard TD pass from Jamelle Holieway to tight end Keith Jackson on third-and-24 and a game-clinching 61-yard touchdown run by Lydell Carr — plus four Tim Lashar field goals to win. The loss was Penn State’s first in the Orange Bowl after three victories. Penn State took a 7-0 lead on its first possession. John Shaffer drove the Lions 62 yards, capped by a Tim Manoa one-yard touchdown run. But, the Sooners would score 16 unanswered points. Despite four turnovers, the Lions trailed just 19-10 as Massimo Manca attempted a 26-yard field with 2:46 to play. Manca’s kick was no good and a minute later Carr’s long TD run sealed the crown for the Sooners. Penn State could muster just 14 first downs and 267 yards against a defense which had held opponents to less than 200 yards during the regular-season. Oklahoma Penn State

1987 FIESTA: January 2, 1987

Linebacker Pete Giftopoulos thrust his 233-pound frame between Vinny Testaverde and a possible winning touchdown in the waning seconds of the 1987 Fiesta Bowl, intercepting Testaverde’s final pass at the Lions’ one-yard line to preserve Penn State’s 14-10 victory over No. 1 Miami (Fla.) and earn the underdog Nittany Lions their second National Championship in four years. In one of the most memorable National Championship games ever, the No. 2 Nittany Lions intercepted Testaverde, the Heisman Trophy winner, five times to frustrate the Hurricanes and earn their second 12-0 season, culminating Penn State’s celebration of 100 years of football. Unbeaten Miami rolled up 22 first downs and 445 yards to eight first downs and 162 yards for the Lions but, the Hurricanes could not convert yards into points against a staunch Penn State defense that was no stranger to adversity. Miami’s only touchdown came in the second quarter. Hit as he was passing, John Shaffer fumbled and the Hurricanes recovered at the Lion 23. Four plays later, Melvin Bratton went over from the one for a 7-0 lead. Penn State immediately answered with its only sustained drive of the game, going 74 yards in 13 plays. One of the big plays was a 23-yard pass from Shaffer to Eric Hamilton on third-and 12. Tim Manoa also had a 19-yard run and caught a 12-yard pass. Shaffer rolled around the right side four yards into the end zone with 1:14 left in the half and Massimo Manca’s PAT made it 7-7 at the break. Miami regained the lead early in the fourth quarter on a 38-yard field goal by Mark Seelig. All-America linebacker Shane Conlan, who was hobbled by knee and ankle injuries, who had grabbed a third-quarter interception, did it again, intercepting Testaverde’s toss and returning it 39 yards to the Hurricanes’ five. After a heart-stopping first-down fumbled snap was recovered by Keith Radecic, D.J. Dozier, who had 99 yards rushing on the night, got the most important six yards of his collegiate career when he darted through a gaping hole for the go-ahead touchdown with 8:13 to play. Manca’s conversion pushed the Penn State margin to 14-10. Trey Bauer forced a fumble on the Hurricanes’ next drive, but Miami had one threat left. Starting from their own 23 with 3:07 remaining, a fourth-down completion from Testaverde to Bennie Blades gained 31 yards and propelled the Hurricanes across midfield. With 18 seconds remaining, Miami had a fourth-and-goal at the Penn State 13-yard line. Testaverde tested the Lions’ secondary one more time, looking for Brett Perriman in the end zone, but his pass came to rest in the arms of Giftopoulos, who cradled his second theft of the night and a Penn State National Championship as he fell on the ball after returning it to the 10-yard line with just nine seconds to play in another of the greatest moments in Lion football history. More than 70 million people watched the prime-time telecast on NBC, breaking the previous record for a college football telecast.

1988 CITRUS: January 1, 1988

Clemson successfully blended the expected with the unexpected to post a 35-10 conquest of Penn State in the 1988 Florida Citrus Bowl, the first-ever meeting between the two schools. The Tigers rushed for 285 yards and quarterback Danny Williams threw for an uncharacteristic 214 yards (15-of-24) in the Nittany Lions’ first appearance in Orlando. The Lions played without leading rusher and receiver Blair Thomas, who suffered a serious knee injury in an early December practice which would sideline him for the 1988 season. He had rushed for 1,414 yards and 11 touchdowns in 1987. Freshmen Leroy Thompson and Gary Brown posted 106 yards from the tailback position in Thomas’ absence. Thompson, who rushed for 55 yards and added 146 more on pass receptions (19) and kickoff returns (127), was voted the Lions’ offensive MVP with 201 all-purpose yards. Penn State’s touchdown came on a perfect 39-yard pass from Matt Knizner to Mike Alexander that tied the issue at 7-7 in the second quarter. The Tigers led 14-7 at halftime but, Penn State cut it to 14-10 on a 27-yard field goal by Eric Etze early in the third stanza. Clemson responded with a TD and added two more scores in the fourth period to hand the Lions their worst bowl loss. Senior linebacker Trey Bauer, who had six stops, three tackles for losses and a quarterback sack, was Penn State’s defensive MVP. Clemson Penn State

1989 HOLIDAY: December 29, 1989

In a game which featured explosive offense on both sides, two freak defensive plays decided the issue between Penn State and Brigham Young in the 1989 Holiday Bowl, which lived up to its reputation for plenty of scoring and wild finishes. By the time Penn State’s high-octane 50-39 victory over BYU was finished, 41 post-season records had either been surpassed or equaled by the teams in the four-hour, 17-minute marathon. The Lions and Cougars put 89 points on the scoreboard, including an NCAA bowl record 64 in the second half; gained 1,115 total offensive yards; rolled up 61 first downs; and punted only three times. Andre Collins, the Lions’ All-America linebacker, made the first of the decisive defensive plays after the Cougars had closed to within 41-39 with 2:58 remaining. Collins intercepted Ty Detmer’s two-point conversion pass attempt and returned it 100-plus yards to score two for the Lions, the first time they had tallied in such a fashion since the rule was introduced in 1988. On the ensuing BYU series, Hero Gary Brown blitzed past Outland Trophy-winner Mohammed Elewonibi to steal the ball from Detmer as he prepared to pass and returned it 53 yards for the touchdown in the final minute that secured the wild and wacky win. Among the flood of big plays earlier in the game was a spectacular, 52-yard TD catch by David Daniels, who leapt high in the air to grab Tony Sacca’s aerial at the goal line, was hit, juggled and caught the ball as he landed on his back in the end zone for one of the superlative catches in school history. Penn State tailback Blair Thomas, playing his final game, broke the school bowl rushing record with 186 yards on 35 carries, one a seven-yard scoring run, and shared Player-of-the-Game honors with Detmer, who was 42-of-59 for an NCAA bowl record 576 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Thomas also gained 46 additional yards on a pair of pass receptions for 232 all-purpose yards. The 64 second half points (Penn State, 38 and BYU, 26) remain tied for the NCAA bowl record, while the combined 61 first downs by both squads also are an NCAA bowl mark. The Lions played on the West Coast for the first time since a 1973 visit to Stanford. Brigham Young Penn State

1990 BLOCKBUSTER: December 28, 1990

The inaugural Blockbuster Bowl wasn’t being played on New Year’s Day, but was one of the most intriguing post-season contests, pitting No. 7 Penn State and No. 6 Florida State and their legendary coaches, Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden. After spotting the Seminoles 10 points in the first eight minutes of the game, Penn State applied pressure the rest of the way before finally bowing, 24-17, in a marquee matchup of 9-2 independents at Joe Robbie Stadium. With Florida State leading, 24-10, senior quarterback Tom Bill came off the bench to ignite a 62yard scoring drive in three plays, finding Terry Smith behind the secondary for a 37-yard touchdown with 6:27 to play. But two Penn State drives later came up empty, including an interception at the one-yard line with less than three minutes to play. Penn State’s other touchdown was scored on a 56-yard pass from Tony Sacca to David Daniels in the first quarter, but the Lions could not overcome three interceptions, a partially blocked punt which led to the Seminoles’ first TD and a blocked field goal.

1992 FIESTA: January 1, 1992

For two and one-half quarters, Fiesta Bowl XXI had all the earmarks of a Tennessee Waltz. But, in a furious eight-minute span in the second half, Penn State turned up the beat and buried the bewildered Volunteers, 4217, beneath an avalanche of big plays on both sides of the ball in the first of what stretched to eight consecutive January bowl visits. Penn State grabbed an early 7-0 lead, recovering a fumble on the opening kickoff and converting three plays later when Sam Gash scored on a 10-yard pass from Tony Sacca. At halftime, Tennessee had 17 first downs and 324 yards, while Penn State had just five first downs and 59 yards, but the Vols only led 10-7. Vols’ quarterback Andy Kelly, who was 16-of-26 for 204 yards in the opening half, hit Cory Fleming on a 44-yard score on the initial possession of the third stanza for a 17-7 lead. A 39-yard punt return by O.J. McDuffie ignited the Lions and Sacca found Chip LaBarca on a three-yard scoring toss to cut the margin to 17-14 with 2:56 left in the third period. No one among the crowd of 71,133 was prepared for the onslaught which followed. On Tennessee’s second play after the score, Tyoka Jackson stripped Kelly of the ball and recovered at the Vol 13. On the ensuing play Sacca hit Kyle Brady and suddenly the Lions had a 21-17 lead. On the Vols’ second play, Reggie Givens’ interception set up a twoyard run by Richie Anderson early in the fourth quarter. On Tennessee’s next play, Derek Bochna hit Kelly and Givens grabbed the ball and ran it in from 23 yards. In less than four minutes Penn State had scored 28 points to take a 35-17 lead. Tennessee managed to run three plays before punting on its next possession and the Lions sealed the win with a 37-yard TD strike from Sacca to McDuffie, giving them five scores in less than eight minutes. Sacca set a Penn State bowl record with four touchdown passes and McDuffie caught four passes for 78 yards and a touchdown and had 71 yards on punt returns to earn Most Valuable Offensive Player honors. Linebacker Keith Goganious recorded a game-high 15 tackles, but Givens earned Defensive MVP accolades. Punter Doug Helkowski set Fiesta Bowl records with his nine punts for a 47.9 yard average as State finished 11-2 and No. 3 in the polls. Tennessee Penn State

1993 BLOCKBUSTER: January 1, 1993

Stanford proved it was one of the nation’s top teams as it raced past the Nittany Lions, 24-3, in the 1993 Blockbuster Bowl, ending a Penn State string of four straight wins over Pac-10 teams in post-season games. Stanford, the Pac-10 co-champions with Washington, moved 71 yards in eight plays with the opening kickoff to score all the points the Cardinal would need in Joe Robbie Stadium. A 33-yard V.J. Muscillo field goal made it 7-3 at the end of the first quarter, but Stanford led, 14-3, at halftime and added 10 points in the third quarter. Stanford tallied 365 yards to Penn State’s 263. All-American O.J. McDuffie made six catches for 111 yards and Richie Anderson carried the ball 13 times for 40 yards as the Lions were held to their second-lowest point total in a bowl game.

1994 CITRUS: January 1, 1994

A Citrus Bowl record crowd of 72,456 was treated to the Nittany Lions’ strongest effort of the season, a 31-13 knockout of sixth-ranked Tennessee. The hard-earned and satisfying victory capped a 10-2 season and vaulted Penn State to another Top 10 finish. Trailing, 10-0, Penn State retaliated with tailback Ki-Jana Carter bursting for a three-yard score. The key play was a 36-yard strike from quarterback Kerry Collins to Bobby Engram. The momentum continued to swing in the Lions’ favor on Tennessee’s next possession, as Tyoka Jackson tipped a Heath Shuler pass which Lee Rubin snared just inches above the turf. Engram then made a 16-yard reception and gained 35 yards on a reverse. Craig Fayak’s 19-yard field goal knotted the score at 10-10. Tennessee tallied its final points of the afternoon with a field goal, but Penn State had its two-minute offense humming late in the first half. Passes to Engram and Brian O’Neal took the ball to the Vol 14-yard line with :10 left. With the majority of the packed stadium expecting a pass, offensive coordinator Fran Ganter called Carter’s number and he swept left and hurtled behind an Engram block into the end zone with just three ticks left on the clock to stun the crowd. Fayak’s PAT kick put the Lions on top for good, 17-13, capping what may have been the game’s most pivotal play. A seven-yard pass from Collins to Kyle Brady made it 24-13 in the third quarter and Engram made a 15-yard TD catch to close the scoring. Engram made seven catches for 107 yards and his 184 all-purpose yards made him the overwhelming choice as the Offensive MVP, while Rubin was the Defensive MVP. Collins was 15-of-24 passing for 162 yards and two scores, outplaying Shuler, the Heisman Trophy runnerup, who was sacked four times in the second half. Tennessee Penn State

1995 ROSE: January 2, 1995

In a landmark season, the Nittany Lions brought proper closure to a magnificent 1994 campaign by beating Oregon, 38-20, in the Rose Bowl, Penn State’s first appearance in the “Granddaddy of Them All” since the 1923 contest. Having won their first Big Ten Championship in their second year of conference play, the Lions became the first Big Ten squad ever to earn a 12-0 record and the first Conference team to earn an unblemished record since Ohio State in 1968. Despite the 12-0 record and having been ranked No. 1 in late October, the Lions finished No. 2 to Nebraska in the final polls, marking the fourth time a Paterno-led team had gone unbeaten but not won the national title. In a microcosm of a brilliant season, Heisman Trophy runner-up Ki-Jana Carter flashed through the line on Penn State’s first play from scrimmage, bounced off a defender and burst into the lush green carpet for an 83-yard score in the game’s initial five minutes. The Rose Bowl throng of 102,247 rose in unison as Carter raced toward the end zone in front of the frenzied Blue and White backers. Just as they had done so many times in 1994, the Nittany Lions’ startling offensive prowess delivered an early lead and a dagger to the spirit of the opposition. The Lions, though, were confronted by a relentless Oregon squad, which gained a 14-14 tie in the third quarter before Penn State pulled away for the 3820 victory. The significance of the win in Pasadena stretched in many directions: Penn State earned its fifth unbeaten, untied season under Joe Paterno and its third 12-0 campaign; Paterno became college football’s alltime winningest bowl coach with his 16th post-season win and became the first coach in college football history to win the traditional four major bowls. Carter rushed for 156 yards on 21 carries and three touchdowns, sharing Rose Bowl Co-Most Valuable Player honors with Duck quarterback Danny O’Neil,

who set six Rose records with his 41-of-61 effort for 456 yards and two scores. Carter’s 83-yard run was the longest of his career, Penn State’s longest in a bowl game and the third-longest in Rose Bowl history. Lion quarterback Kerry Collins concluded his brilliant season with a 19-of-30 display for 200 yards, setting a school completion mark for a bowl game and fullbacks Brian Milne and Jon Witman each tallied once. The offensive fireworks by both squads produced 13 Rose Bowl records and tied two others. Penn State also eclipsed seven individual and two team school bowl records. Oregon Penn State

1996 OUTBACK: January 1, 1996

Facing a new opponent, in a new bowl, the Penn State Nittany Lions were determined to send a superb class of 21 seniors out in a familiar fashion. Playing in its first Outback Bowl, a strong finish was the precursor to a solid bowl effort, as the Nittany Lions played arguably their finest game of the year in crushing Auburn, 43-14, to finish 9-3. Penn State seized control of the Outback with a Wally Richardson to Mike Archie touchdown pass with :05 left in the first half for a 16-7 lead and then deluged the Tigers with an unanswered 27-point avalanche in the third quarter. Outback and school bowl records were being broken and tied by the Lions as quickly as the rain was turning the Tampa Stadium turf into a quagmire. A group of seniors who were the backbone of Penn State’s impressive 31-5 record the past three seasons 125

again led the way in their final game. Archie ran for 41 yards in addition to his big touchdown catch. Stephen Pitts rushed for 118 yards and also made a touchdown reception. Fullback Brian Milne rushed for a careerbest 82 yards. The senior offensive line quartet of Keith Conlin, Jeff Hartings, Andre Johnson and Marco Rivera dominated the line of scrimmage, helping the Lions rush for 266 yards and pass for 221 with no sacks. Terry Killens recorded a pair of sacks to spark the defense. And then there was Bobby Engram. The three-time All-American concluded his career the Lions’ all-time greatest receiver with another typically superlative effort, earning game MVP honors for the second time in a bowl. He made four catches, three of which were typically spectacular, for 113 yards and two scores. Just as he had demolished the school’s career receiving records, the 1994 Biletnikoff Award winner did so with Penn State’s career bowl receiving marks. His two TD catches also broke the school bowl standard, giving the dynamic player 13 records. Auburn Penn State

1997 FIESTA: January 1, 1997

Penn State improved to 6-0 in Tempe with a 38-15 win over Big 12 champion Texas in the 1997 Fiesta Bowl. Gaining only 95 yards while allowing 242, Penn State was fortunate to trail the Longhorns only 12-7 at halftime, having quickly scored after a Mark Tate interception on the game’s second play. The defense had stiffened twice inside the 15-yard line, holding Texas to a pair of field goals and one touchdown. As the Lions did so many times under Joe Paterno, they made adjustments at the break and then dominated the last 30 minutes. Freshman Kenny Watson took the second-half kickoff 81 yards, a school bowl record, to inside the Texas 20. A five-yard Aaron Harris TD run and a two-point pass from Wally Richardson to Curtis Enis provided a 15-12 lead less than three minutes into the half. Texas gained a 15-15 tie midway through the stanza, but the momentum clearly was swinging in Penn State’s direction. On its next drive, Enis scored from two yards. The defense held and on second down, Chafie Fields took a double reverse 84 yards to the Texas five-yard line, the longest run in school and Fiesta Bowl history. Anthony Cleary cracked over for a 28-15 margin and the Lions never looked back, out-scoring Texas, 31-3, in the second half. The Lions out-gained the Longhorns 330-118 in the second half, including a whopping 292 to minus-19 yard edge on the ground. Richardson completed his tenure with a 21-5 record as a starter as the 16 seniors closed their careers with a 42-7 record and four bowl victories. Texas Penn State

1998 FLORIDA CITRUS: January 1, 1998

With their schools meeting for the first time since the 1962 Gator Bowl, Joe Paterno and Steve Spurrier, matched wits for the first time in the 1998 Florida Citrus Bowl. The normally pass-happy Gators stuck primarily to the ground and posted a 21-6 victory. Playing without starters Curtis Enis and Joe Jurevicius, the Lions struggled offensively, but the defense kept Penn State within striking range after the Gators took a quick 14-0 lead. Jim Nelson collected an interception at the Penn State four-yard line to stop a Florida drive late in the first stanza. On the Gators’ next possession, Shawn Lee returned an interception 33 yards to the Florida 31. The Lions moved the ball to the seven, but had to settle for a Travis Forney field goal. The defense and special teams made two huge plays to give Penn State first-and-goal chances in the second quarter. Brandon Short knocked the ball away from Gator QB Doug Johnson and after a wild scramble, Short recovered at the Gators’ six. But, on fourth-and-inches, Chris Eberly was stopped short of the goal line. The defense held and Kenny Watson delivered a 52-yard punt return to the Florida six with 1:14 left in the half. Again, the Lions were faced with fourth-and-one, but Mike McQueary’s pass was picked off in the end zone, denying Penn State its best opportunities for touchdowns. A Forney field goal made it 14-6 entering the fourth quarter, but Florida scored on the second play of the stanza to end the scoring. Gator tailback Fred Taylor set Citrus Bowl records with 43 carries for 234 yards, most ever for a Lion foe in a bowl game. The Lions could muster only nine first downs and 139 yards in offense, the lowest in Paterno’s tenure. The 16 Lion seniors completed their careers with a superb 41-8 (83.7) record.

1999 OUTBACK: January 1, 1999

Facing one of college football’s most talented players — the eventual No. 1 pick in the 1999 National Football League draft — the Penn State defense was superb in limiting high-flying Kentucky to only two scores in a 26-14 Outback Bowl win before a soldout crowd of 66,005 in the new Raymond James Stadium. Joe Paterno led the Lions to their eighth straight January bowl game and improved his NCAA record for bowl victories to 19. While Heisman Trophy finalist Tim Couch did pass for 336 yards, it took him a whopping 48 attempts to do so. The Lion defense intercepted him twice, sacked him five times and had numerous near-sacks and hurries. Kentucky broke out to an early 14-3 lead, but in the second quarter, Penn State made adjustments and scored 10 unanswered points to cut the lead to 14-13. A 56-yard TD pass from QB Kevin Thompson to Joe Nastasi preceded three Travis Forney field goals. Forney also had made a trey in the first quarter, breaking the Outback and school bowl records with four field goals. Despite dominating the second and third quarters, the Lions only led 19-14 entering the final period. But, the defense, which had gotten a blocked field goal from LaVar Arrington in the third quarter, stuffed the Wildcats on fourth-and-one at the Kentucky 34. Several plays later, Chafie Fields took his second reverse of the game 19 yards to paydirt for the final 26-14 margin. As it had done all season, the defense led the way, paced by Anthony King’s 11 tackles, two interceptions and a fumble recovery. Courtney Brown made the seven stops, including four for loss, and two sacks on consecutive plays in the final period to earn game MVP honors. Kentucky Penn State

1999 ALAMO: December 28, 1999

Their resolve was firm. A team that was in position to play for the National Championship in early November was looking to finish the season on a positive note after three straight narrow losses to end the regular-season. Facing Texas A&M in the Alamo Bowl, 25 seniors were playing their final game, a victory would give Joe Paterno another 10-win season. The Nittany Lions turned in a marvelous defensive performance to record a 24-0 blanking of the Aggies. The whitewash was the Lions’ 20th since Sandusky became defensive coordinator in 1977. Finishing 10-3, the Lions won at least 10 games for the 18th time under Paterno and earned the No. 11 ranking in the final Associated Press and USA Today/ ESPN Coaches polls. The game was Paterno’s 30th bowl contest, breaking a tie with “Bear” Bryant for appearances. The all-time bowl wins leader improved his post-season record to 20-9-1. On A&M’s first scrimmage play, All-American LaVar Arrington set the tone, as he chased QB Randy McCown and hit him as he threw, with David Macklin making the first of four Lion interceptions at the A&M 40-yard line. On A&M’s second possession, Derek Fox collected a McCown pass at the A&M 34, and weaved his way to the end zone for a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. With Kevin Thompson sidelined by a shoulder injury, quarterback Rashard Casey made his first career start. He fired a 45-yard TD strike to Eddie Drummond for a 14-0 lead. Early in the second half, the Aggies advanced to the Lions’ 14. But, on third down, Arrington tipped McCown’s pass and Ron Graham grabbed it at the eight to thwart another drive. Arrington flattened McCown to halt A&M’s last drive and Casey quickly had the Lions on the move. A 34-yard completion to John Gilmore took the pigskin to the A&M 26. A 20-yard completion to Tony Stewart set up Casey’s four-yard naked bootleg on the first play of the fourth quarter for a 21-0 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Askari Adams forced a fumble which was recovered by Shawn Mayer at the A&M 23. A 39-yard Travis Forney field goal made it 24-0. Texas A&M Penn State

2003 CAPITAL ONE: January 1, 2003

Penn State rode the momentum of four consecutive wins to close the regular-season into the 2003 Capital One Bowl against Auburn, but some missed offensive opportunities resulted in a difficult 13-9 loss. The Lions finished with a 9-4 record, with all four losses coming by seven points or less, including two in overtime, to teams that were ranked in the Top 15 of the final Associated Press poll (three in the Top 10). Anthony Adams forced an early fumble that Derek Wake pounced on at the Auburn 15-yard line. The Lions had a first-and-goal at the four, but were forced to settle for a 21-yard field goal by Robbie Gould. The Tigers advanced to the Lions’ seven early in the second quarter, but Wake blocked a 34-yard field goal attempt, his fourth blocked kick of the year. Midway through the quarter, the Lions reached the Auburn 16, but Gould’s 33-yard field try was wide. Penn State’s next possession began at the Auburn 43 and the Lions moved to the 10, but again had to settle for a Gould field goal, a 27-yarder, for a 6-0 lead with 1:44 left in the half. Three trips inside the Auburn 20 had resulted in only six points, which would come back to haunt the Lions. Early in the fourth period, Michael Robinson completed a 34-yard pass to Tony Johnson and then scrambled 20 yards to the Auburn 19. Gould’s 31-yard field goal gave Penn State a 9-7 lead, but 10:10 was left to play. A sack by John Bronson forced an Auburn punt, which the Tigers downed at the Penn State one. The Tigers forced a three-and-out and got excellent field position at the Penn State 40 with 5:04 to play. Brown carried the ball five straight times, the last one a 17yard touchdown burst with 2:19 to play for a 13-9 lead. Campbell’s two-point pass was incomplete. Zack Mills returned to the contest, but on third down, was intercepted by Roderick Hood and Auburn held on. Adams recorded nine tackles (eight solo), including a sack, and the forced fumble to earn team Defensive MVP honors. Robinson was the team Offensive MVP. Auburn Penn State

2006 ORANGE: January 3, 2006

Freshman Kevin Kelly’s 29-yard field goal in the third overtime lifted Penn State to a thrilling 26-23 victory over Florida State in the FedEx Orange Bowl. The Nittany Lions’ fourth win in five Orange Bowl appearances gave them the No. 3 ranking in the final AP and USA Today Coaches polls. The Lions (11-1) earned their 13th Top 5 finish under Joe Paterno. In a meeting of the two winningest major college coaches of all-time, Paterno gained one victory on his old friend Bobby Bowden, as both legends ended their 40th seasons as head coaches at 12:57 a.m., more than 4 1/2 hours after kickoff. Austin Scott carried five times for 57 yards on Penn State’s second drive and scored from two yards out for a 7-0 lead. Scott gained 110 yards on 26 carries and two TDs, replacing an injured Tony Hunt. Two of the nation’s premier defenses then kept each side in check until a wild final 4:09 of the second quarter. Florida State tied the game at 7-7 on Willie Reid’s 87-yard punt return. Then Drew Weatherford hit Lorenzo Booker on a 57-yard TD pass, but the PAT kick was missed. The Lions quickly responded, as Big Ten MVP Michael Robinson lofted a 25-yard pass to Ethan Kilmer, who made a leaping catch over a defender for the TD with just :06 left in the half. Kelly’s PAT made it 14-13 at the half. The Lion defense did not allow any points in the third period despite great field position for Florida State throughout the quarter. Jeremy Kapinos pinned Florida State deep as the fourth quarter began. Jim Shaw pressured Weatherford in the end zone, he threw the ball away and was called for intentional grounding, giving Penn State a safety and a 16-13 lead with 13:36 to play. Florida State later advanced to the Lions’ 29, but Penn State stiffened and Gary Cismesia hit a 48-yard field goal with 4:08 to play. A 38-yard completion from Robinson to Jordan Norwood took the ball to the Seminoles’ 11. With :32 left in regulation, Kelly’s 29-yard field goal attempt was wide, but he would later emerge as the hero. Robinson was 21-of-39 for 253 yards, accounting for 28 touchdowns during the season. The Lions held No. 22 Florida State to 26 yards rushing, 12 first downs and three-of-17 on third down. Linebacker Dan Connor made seven tackles, (two TFL) and defensive tackle Scott Paxson had six stops (1.5 TFL). Jay Alford made four hits, with 2.5 TFL, and forced a fumble deep to win a spot on ESPN.com’s All-Bowl team. All-America cornerback Alan Zemaitis grabbed his Big Ten-leading sixth interception of the season (12th career).

2007 OUTBACK: January 1, 2007

Facing its fifth ranked opponent, Penn State played its most complete game of 2006 to defeat No. 17 Tennessee, 20-10, in the Outback Bowl, winning a New Year’s Day bowl game for the second consecutive year. Improving to 3-0 in the Outback Bowl, Penn State finished 9-4 and was ranked No. 24 by the Associated Press and No. 25 in the USA Today Coaches polls. The Lions held the Vols to a season-low 10 points, 19.3 below their average and forced three turnovers. Tennessee became the 10th team, and seventh consecutive, to score 17 or fewer points against Penn State. Over the last five games, the Lions allowed just 36 points (7.2 avg.) with two shutouts. Over the last 25 quarters of the season, Penn State permitted just three TDs. Tennessee also became the eighth opponent held under 100 rushing yards during the season, netting 83. Tony Hunt was spectacular in his final game as a Lion, rushing for 158 yards on a career-high tying 31 attempts to earn Outback Bowl Most Valuable Player honors. Hunt posted his eighth 100-yard game of 2006 (15th career). Hunt’s 158 yards were the second-highest of his career and the second-highest by a Lion in a bowl game (186, Blair Thomas vs. Brigham Young, 1989 Holiday Bowl). Hunt finished second on the Penn State career rushing charts with 3,320 yards and first all-time with 654 carries (5.08 avg.). He finished just 78 yards behind career leader Curt Warner’s total of 3,398 yards.

The Vols scored late in the half to tie the game and it was 10-10 entering the fourth quarter, when the Lion defense delivered the game-changing play. On first down from the Nittany Lions’ 14, Dan Connor and Sean Lee crunched Tennessee’s Arian Foster and cornerback Tony Davis picked up the pigskin and flew 88 yards for the goahead TD with 10:01 to go. Penn State forced a three-and-out and Derrick Williams returned the punt 20 yards to the Volunteers’ 45. Hunt had seven consecutive carries, netting 39 yards, to set up a 22-yard trey by Kelly, making it 20-10 with just 3:29 to play. Anthony Morelli was a strong 14-of-25 for 197 yards with no interceptions. All-American Paul Posluszny recorded eight tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss. He finished his career as Penn State’s all-time tackle leader with 372 and 12th all-time with 35 tackles for loss. Posluszny became the first player to lead Penn State in tackles three consecutive seasons and the first with a trio of 100-tackle campaigns. Tennessee Penn State

2007 ALAMO: December 29, 2007

Penn State overcame a 14-0 first-quarter deficit to defeat Texas A&M, 24-17, in the Valero Alamo Bowl in Joe Paterno’s 500th game as head coach of the Nittany Lions. The Lions (9-4) won their third consecutive bowl game. Penn State finished No. 25 in the USA Today Coaches poll. The Lions overcame their largest deficit of the season and held the Aggies to just three points over the last three quarters in front of an Alamo Bowl record crowd of 66,166 in The Alamodome. Penn State took the lead for good at 24-17 with :19 left in the third quarter on a season-long 38-yard burst by redshirt freshman tailback Evan Royster. 128

Early in the fourth quarter, Jeremy Boone boomed a 55-yard punt and Texas A&M’s Roger Holland was dropped at the Aggies’ one by A.J. Wallace and Justin King. But, Texas A&M proceeded to march downfield looking to tie the game. On fourth-and-one from the Penn State two, McGee ran the option to the right, but slipped and fell at the six, giving the ball back to the Lions, who used two possessions to run out the final 7:43. Junior linebacker Sean Lee recorded a game-high 14 tackles, with a TFL and a pass breakup, to earn Defensive MVP honors. Lee’s 14 stops tied the Alamo Bowl record, as he recorded double-figures in tackles for the 10th time in the season. His 138 tackles ranked No. 4 on the school season list. All-America linebacker Dan Connor made nine tackles to finish the season with 145, passing Shawn Mayer’s 144 for second place on the Lions’ season list. Connor’s 419 career tackles broke the school record. Safeties Mark Rubin and Anthony Scirrotto made eight tackles each and defensive end Maurice Evans had six stops and forced two fumbles. Cornerback A.J. Wallace made five stops, grabbed his first career interception and had a huge fumble recovery to set up a score. Penn State ran for a season-high 270 yards, averaging 6.6 yards on its 41 carries. Rodney Kinlaw gained 143 yards on 21 attempts (6.8) for his sixth 100-yard game of the season. Reserve quarterback Daryll Clark gained 50 yards on just six attempts (8.3), including an 11-yard touchdown run. Senior quarterback Anthony Morelli was 15-of-31 for 143 yards, including a 30-yard scoring strike to a diving Deon Butler to swing the momentum of the game. All-Big Ten punter Boone averaged a school bowl record 51.4 yards on his five punts, with a long of 55 yards. Texas A&M Penn State

2009 ROSE: January 1, 2009

Sixth-ranked Penn State came into its Rose Bowl battle with No. 5 Southern California among the nation’s leaders in fewest penalties and turnovers, but mistakes proved costly as the Trojans captured a 38-24 win in the meeting between national powers. Southern California took a 5-4 lead in the series. The Nittany Lions had season-highs of nine penalties for 72 yards, 62 in the first half, negating a turnover and a 45-yard completion in USC territory early in the game. Penn State also had three turnovers after committing only 13 in the regular-season. Penn State (11-2), the 2008 Big Ten champion, saw its three-game bowl wining streak ended. Coach Joe Paterno lost a bowl game west of the Mississippi River for the first time after 13 victories without a defeat. More than 30,000 Nittany Lion fans brought the famed Penn State “Whitehouse” to the Rose Bowl, staying in the game until the final gun. The total attendance was 93,293. The Nittany Lions gained 410 yards, the most by a USC opponent for the season. Penn State became just the third team to score more than 20 points against the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense (7.8 ppg average). Junior quarterback Daryll Clark broke Penn State bowl records with 273 passing yards and 290 yards of total offense. His 21 completions tied Michael Robinson’s mark from the 2006 Orange Bowl. Clark was 21-of-36, with two TDs and two interceptions, one of which came on the final play of the game, with Penn State at the USC 12-yard line. Clark also ran for a nine-yard touchdown late in the first quarter to tie the game, 7-7. The runnerup for 2008 Big Ten MVP honors, he accounted for a school season-record 29 TDs, throwing for 19 and rushing for 10. Tailback Stephfon Green saw extensive duty, as Evan Royster left the game late in the first quarter with a knee injury. Green led Penn State with 57 yards on 10 carries and five receptions for 67 yards, including a 30-yard play. Royster gained 34 yards on just six carries to finish with 1,236 yards, good for No. 10 on the Penn State season list. Senior Deon Butler had four catches for 97 yards and a 45-yard first-quarter catch nullified by a penalty. He finished his career as Penn State’s career leader with 179 receptions, while his 2,771 yards were good for No. 2. Senior All-American Derrick Williams made four receptions for 34 yards, including a two-yard touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter to pull the Lions within 3114. Williams finished his career No. 3 on the school career receptions list with 161. His 4,156 career all-purpose yards were good for No. 5 on the Penn State list. Senior Jordan Norwood made three catches for 32 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown catch. He finished his career No. 4 on the Penn State career receptions list (158) and No. 3 on the school career receiving yardage list (2,015). Norwood’s three catches also gave him 41 for the season, as he, Butler (47) and Williams (44) each eclipsed 40 or more receptions for the third consecutive season. Prior to 2006, Penn State had never had a trio of players with 40 or more catches in the same season. The Lions held the Trojans to 61 rushing yards, 145 yards below their season average. USC became the eighth team to fail to gain 100 rushing yards against Penn State. Sophomore linebacker Navorro Bowman made a school bowl-record five tackles for loss (minus-21), tying Andy Katzenmoyer’s Rose Bowl record from the 1997 game. Bowman had his fourth sack of the season among his eight tackles (seven solo), finishing the year with a team-best 106 tackles and 16.5 tackles for loss. Junior linebacker Josh Hull made a game-high nine tackles, including one for a five-yard loss. Senior Tony Davis

made eight hits and recovered a fumble and senior Lydell Sargeant had seven tackles (six solo). Senior placekicker Kevin Kelly scored six points in the game with three PAT and a 25-yard field goal that moved him into fourth place all-time on the NCAA career overall scoring charts with 425 points. That mark also ranks second in Big Ten history, just one point shy of the record of 426 points held by Ron Dayne of Wisconsin (1996-99). USC quarterback Mark Sanchez was 28-of-35 for 413 yards, with four touchdown passes, the most ever by an opposing player in a bowl game. His 413 yards were second-highest in Rose Bowl history and the most against Penn State since Minnesota’s Tim Schade threw for 478 yards in 1993.

2010 CAPITAL ONE: January 1, 2010

Senior quarterback Daryll Clark led Penn State on a 65-yard drive in the waning minutes of the game and Collin Wagner connected on a 21-yard field goal with :57 left to play to lift the Nittany Lions to a dramatic 19-17 win over LSU in the 64th Capital One Bowl. Clark, the game MVP, led No. 9/11 Penn State (11-2) to its 15th 11-win season under Coach Joe Paterno. The No. 13 Tigers (9-4) suffered their first bowl loss under Les Miles. The victory solidified Penn State’s 23rd Top 10 final ranking under Paterno. The Nittany Lions finished No. 8 in the USA Today Coaches poll and No. 9 in the AP poll. 129

Wagner made a career-high four field goals, connecting from 26, 18, 20 and 21 yards. He had never made four field goals during his prep or Penn State career. His four field goals tied Travis Forney’s Penn State bowl record (1999 Outback). Having taken a 16-3 lead into the third quarter, the Nittany Lions saw the Tigers rally to score two touchdowns in a span of 2:24, grabbing a 17-16 lead with 12:49 to play on a one-yard run by Stevan Ridley. Penn State had to punt, but the defense held LSU to one first down and forced a punt, with the Lions taking over at their 31 with 6:54 to play. Penn State converted two third downs on the dramatic 12-play scoring drive. Clark hit Graham Zug for a first down at the LSU 37. On the next play, Zug made a huge 17yard sideline reception to the 20. On third-and-four from the Tigers’ 14, Stephfon Green burst through the line for a sixyard gain. Clark carried to the LSU two to set up Wagner’s game-winner. On the Tigers’ final possession, they faced a thirdand-21 from their own 40 with time for one more play. Jordan Jefferson completed a pass to Rueben Randle, who reached the Lions’ 35, but was hit by Eric Latimore and fumbled. Nick Sukay recovered to seal the win. Clark, the 2009 Big Ten Co-MVP, was 18-of-35 for 216 yards, with one TD and no interceptions. Compiling a spectacular 22-4 (84.6) record as the Nittany Lions’ starting quarterback Clark became the first Penn Stater to surpass 3,000 passing yards in a season, finishing with 3,003. Clark added the Penn State season total offense mark to his resume of records, gaining 3,214 yards to break Michael Robinson’s mark of 3,156. Clark’s other school records included season (24) and career (43) touchdown passes, and season (31) and career (65) touchdowns responsible for. Andrew Quarless made a career-high and school bowl record eight receptions for 88 yards to break school records for catches by a tight end in a season (41) and career (87). The Lions had just two penalties for 10 yards and did not have a turnover for the fifth time in the last six games. The defense held the Tigers to 243 yards and forced three turnovers. Penn State limited LSU to just nine first downs and 41 rushing yards on 25 attempts, becoming the eighth opponent to rush for less than 100 yards in 2009. All-America linebacker Navorro Bowman made nine tackles (seven solo), with 1.5 tackles for losses. Josh Hull had six stops and Sean Lee had six hits, finishing his outstanding career with 325 tackles, good for No. 4 at Penn State. A heavy downpour soaked an already soft field before the 1 p.m. kickoff, but the rain ended just before the first battle between the schools since the 1974 Orange Bowl. LSU Penn State

2011 OUTBACK: January 1, 2011

Penn State’s bid for a fourth New Year’s Day bowl victory in the past six years was turned back in the final minute as Florida captured a 37-24 win in the 25th Outback Bowl in Raymond James Stadium. Two of the nation’s Top 10 winningest programs since 2005 played for just the third time and staged an entertaining contest in front of 60,574 fans. The loss dropped Penn State to 7-6, while Florida finished 8-5. Penn State suffered its first loss in the Outback Bowl after beating Auburn (1996), Kentucky (1999) and Tennessee (2007) in its previous appearances. Coach Joe Paterno led Penn State to its 25th New Year’s Day bowl game under his leadership (17-8). The Nittany Lions saw their two-game bowl winning streak against Southeastern Conference teams snapped. The Nittany Lions are 9-6 all-time in bowl games against SEC opponents. The Nittany Lions took a 24-17 lead late in the third quarter, but the Gators scored the next 13 points for a 3024 lead midway through the fourth frame. After both teams exchanged punts, Penn State took possession at its own 21-yard line with just 3:04 left to play. Matt McGloin completed an 18-yard pass to Derek Moye and Evan Royster’s 23-yard burst made him the first Nittany Lion with a trio of 1,000-yard rushing seasons. With the ball at the Florida 25, a McGloin pass was picked off by Ahmad Black, who returned it 80 yards for a touchdown to seal the game with 55 seconds to play. Penn State’s career rushing yardage leader, Royster finished his outstanding career with 3,932 yards on a school-record 686 carries and 29 rushing touchdowns. The three-time All-Big Ten honoree gained 98 yards on 20 carries against the Gators to finish the season with 1,014 yards on 208 carries. On Florida’s first play from scrimmage, cornerback D’Anton Lynn grabbed his third interception of the season at the Gators’ 39-yard line. McGloin completed passes of 16 yards to Brett Brackett and 15 yards to Graham Zug to give the Nittany Lions a first-and-goal. On third down from the Florida 5, McGloin lofted the ball to Derek Moye, who snared it for his eighth touchdown catch of the season. Collin Wagner’s PAT kick gave Penn State a 7-0 lead with 9:08 left in the first quarter. Moye had game-highs with five catches and 79 yards and made his 15th career touchdown catch. He became the 11th Nittany Lion player to record at least 100 career receptions with a first-quarter grab and just the seventh Penn Stater to record 15 or more career receiving touchdowns. Making his fifth career start, McGloin was 17-of-41 for 211 yards, with one touchdown and a school-record five

interceptions. His 41 pass attempts were a Penn State bowl record and his 17 completions were fifth-highest in Penn State bowl history. The Penn State defense limited Florida to just 279 yards (101 passing) and an average of 3.9 yards per play. Junior defensive tackle Devon Still recorded a career and team season-high 3.5 TFL against the Gators, with a career-best seven stops (six solo) overall. Senior linebacker Chris Colasanti made a game-high 10 hits, compiling his fifth double-figure tackle game of the season. Florida Penn State

2012 TICKETCITY: January 1, 2012

In the first meeting between Penn State and highpowered Houston since 1977, the No. 20 Cougars beat the No. 24 Nittany Lions, 30-14, in the TicketCity Bowl. The first bowl game of 2012 was one of just four non-BCS games that featured a pair of Top 25 teams. The Nittany Lions dropped consecutive bowl games for the first time since the 1975 Sugar Bowl and 1976 Gator Bowl. Penn State is 10-5 in bowl games since joining the Big Ten Conference. Penn State lost for the first time in the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium. The Nittany Lions won the 1972 and 1975 Cotton Bowls (vs. Texas and Baylor) and tied the 1948 game with SMU in the venerable facility. Penn State played in its 28th January bowl game among its 44 all-time post-season contests. Houston entered the game No. 1 in the nation in total offense (599.0 ypg), passing offense (44.3 ypg) and scoring 130

offense (50.8 ppg) and was impressive, gaining 600 yards. The Cougars’ NCAA record-setting quarterback, Case Keenum, broke the Penn State opponent bowl and all-time records for completions (45) and attempts (69) in a game. He threw for 532 yards and three scores. The previous opponent records were Brigham Young’s Ty Detmer completing 42 passes in the 1989 Holiday Bowl and Oregon’s Danny O’Neil attempting 61 passes in the 1995 Rose Bowl. Detmer threw for an opponent record 576 passing yards in the 1989 Holiday Bowl. Penn State allowed just 41 points during the first quarter in the regular-season, but Houston grabbed a 17-0 lead after the opening period. The Lions out-scored the Cougars, 14-13, over the final three quarters, but were not able to pull within a score. In his final game as a Nittany Lion, Stephfon Green ran for a game-high 63 yards on 15 carries. He scored on a six-yard run midway through the second quarter, his sixth rushing touchdown of the season, to pull Penn State within 17-7. But, the Cougars responded with a 75-yard touchdown pass from Keenum to Patrick Edwards, the longest play from scrimmage allowed by the Penn State defense in the 2011 season and an opponent bowl mark. Edwards’ 228 receiving yards also were a Houston bowl record and an opponent bowl mark. With Houston leading, 27-7, in the third quarter, quarterback Rob Bolden connected with junior wideout Justin Brown on a 69-yard scoring strike to pull the Nittany Lions within two scores. The catch was a career-long for Brown and the second-longest completion in Penn State bowl history behind Chuck Herd’s fingertip 72-yard reception from Tom Shuman in the 1974 Orange Bowl. In his final game as a Nittany Lion, senior linebacker Nate Stupar made a game-high 12 tackles (seven solo), the second-highest total of his career. Linebacker Gerald Hodges recorded nine tackles and safety Drew Astorino had eight stops. Senior All-America tackle Devon Still was limited by turf toe suffered in practice days before the game.

2014 PINSTRIPE: December 27, 2014

On the hallowed grounds of Yankee Stadium, The Captain did it again. Senior placekicker Sam Ficken hit a pair of pressure filled kicks to send Penn State to a 31-30 overtime win over Boston College in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Ficken, who used Derek Jeter’s old locker, converted a 45-yard field goal with just 20 seconds left in regulation to tie the game, 24-24, and was true on the game-winning extra point to lift Penn State to its 28th bowl win in school history. The Valparaiso, Ind., native connected on his 24th field goal of the season, extending his school record, and 54th of his career. He finished his career ranked second in career field goals made, trailing only Kevin Kelly’s 78 (2005-08). His seven points against Boston College (4 XP, 1 FG) pushed his season total to 100 points and his career total to 271. FIcken ended his career ranked fourth on Penn State’s all-time scoring list. Sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg earned MVP honors after he produced one of the finest passing games in Penn State bowl history. He set or tied nine Penn State bowl game records, including completions (34), attempts (50), passing yards (371), total offense (371) and offensive plays (58). His 72-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to Chris Godwin tied the record for longest pass and longest touchdown pass, while his four touchdown throws in the game tied Tony Sacca’s (1992) and Wally Richardson’s (1996) bowl record. Godwin had a career-day with seven catches for 140 yards — with both totals ranking second in Penn State bowl history — including his second TD catch of the season. The Nittany Lions scored first on Hackenberg’s 72yard TD pass to Chris Godwin down the right sideline with 5:22 left in the first. The play is tied for the longest pass and touchdown pass in Penn State’s illustrious bowl history, tying the Tom Shuman to Chuck Herd connection in the 1974 Orange Bowl. Hilliman also found an opening late in the first quarter for a 49-yard touchdown run that tied the game at 7-7. Murphy found Shakim Phillips in the corner end zone for a 19-yard touchdown and a 14-7 lead early in the third. He then showed how he set the ACC’s season record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,079 yards in 2014 with a 40-yard dash that put the Eagles ahead 21-7. That is when Hackenberg went to work on the Eagles defense. He led Penn State on a six-play, 63-yard scoring drive that ended with a Geno Lewis 7-yard touchdown grab with no time left in the third quarter to pull Penn State within seven points, 21-14. Hackenberg threw his third touchdown pass of the game, a toss over the middle to Hamilton that threaded the needle between a pair of Boston College defenders, to tie the game with 6:48 left in the fourth quarter. Mike Knoll put the Eagles back in the led, 24-21, on a 20-yarder with 2:10 left in the fourth, which set up Ficken’s game-tying kick with 0:20 remaining. Murphy hit David Dudeck for a 21-yard TD pass on Boston College’s overtime drive, but Knoll missed the extra point for the Eagles and that was the opening Penn State needed to complete its comeback.

On the overtime drive, Hackenberg missed on his first two pass attempts, but was true on his final three throws of the game. On third-and-15, Hackenberg connected with James for a 17-yard catch-and-run, that ended with James running through an Eagle defender to gain the first down. He then found Lewis for five yards before arching a perfect ball into the hands of Carter for a 10-yard touchdown. Carter’s first TD grab of the season set up Ficken’s automatic kick that sent the Nittany Lions dancing on top of the Yankees’ dugout. Boston College Penn State

2016 TAXSLAYER: January 2, 2016

Facing a 21-point deficit in the third quarter, Penn State rallied to within a touchdown of Georgia, but the Nittany Lions ran out of time as the Bulldogs held on, 2417, to win the 71st annual TaxSlayer Bowl. Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin became the school’s career leader in bowl receiving yards and just the second to surpass 1,100 receiving yards in a season. Leading 24-17, Georgia tried to ice the game with less than two minutes remaining by going for it on fourthand-2 from the Penn State 23. Jason Cabinda and Garrett Sickels stuffed Georgia’s Keith Marshall for a 2-yard loss, giving the Nittany Lions a chance to tie the game with a touchdown and extra point with 1:52 remaining. Redshirt freshman quarterback Trace McSorely, who entered the game midway through the second quarter 131

after quarterback Christian Hackenberg left with an injury, led the Nittany Lions to the Georgia 39 with eight seconds remaining, but his Hail Mary pass attempt was batted down near the goal line. McSorely finished completing 14-of-27 pass attempts for 142 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing seven times for 31 yards. Running back Saquon Barkley totaled 69 yards on 17 carries. Godwin caught six passes for 133 yards, finishing the season with 1,101 receiving yards ranking second only to Allen Robinson’s 2013 effort (1,432 yards). Georgia took a 24-3 lead on a Sony Michel touchdown run with 4:15 remaining in the third quarter, but the Lions started their rally on the next drive, scoring their first touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter on fourth down, capping a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. A 21yard completion to Godwin on third-and-6 moved the Lions to midfield and a 29-yard rush by Barkley to the Georgia 15 setup the drive. Facing fourth-and-7 though, a false start penalty backed PSU to the 17, but McSorely found Geno Lewis just inside the right sideline in the end zone following the final quarter break. Both teams would punt and Penn State forced another Bulldog punt before finding the end zone again. A 20-yard run by Barkley started the seven-play drive, and a leaping catch by DaeSean Hamilton for a 20-yard touchdown capped it with 6:14 remaining. Georgia was able to run 4:15 off the clock on its ensuing possession, and withstood Penn State’s final rally. Penn State Georgia

➤ SHANE CONLAN

➤ JACK HAM

Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia on April 1, 1884, Hugo Bezdek was head coach at Penn State for 12 years (1918-29), compiling a 65-30-11 record, including undefeated seasons in 1920 and 1921. A four-year AllAmerican at the University of Chicago, he played fullback in football and second base in baseball. Bezdek enjoyed a 24-year collegiate coaching career in which he also served as head coach at Oregon (1906, 1913-17) and Arkansas (1908-12). His 1917 Oregon squad defeated Pennsylvania, 14-0, in the Rose Bowl. He later managed the Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball Club (1917-19). Bezdek, who died in 1952, was named to the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame in 1954 and the Helms Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1960.

Shane Conlan, the leader of Penn State’s outstanding defenses in 1985 and ’86, was enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame in 2014. A two-time first-team All-American, Conlan became the 18th former Nittany Lion player and 23rd member of the Penn State football family to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. A senior co-captain in 1986, Conlan was instrumental in Penn State’s 23-1 record his last two seasons, with two National Championship game appearances. Conlan capped his career by leading a superlative defensive effort in the 1987 Fiesta Bowl to earn the game’s Most Valuable Defensive Player, recording eight tackles and two interceptions to lead Penn State past previously unbeaten Miami, 1410, for the 1986 national title. A four-year letterman and a three-year starter for Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno, Conlan was a consensus first-team All-American in 1986. The Buffalo Bills selected Conlan with the No. 8 overall pick in the first round of 1987 NFL Draft and he earned NFL Rookie of the Year and Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Conland played nine years in the NFL, attaining three Pro Bowl selections and helping the Bills win three consecutive AFC Championships.

An All-American in 1970, Jack Ham became the tenth Nittany Lion to be enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame when he was inducted in 1990. Ham is the only Penn State product in both the college and professional football halls of fame. A nine-time All-Pro linebacker for the National Football League Pittsburgh Steelers, Ham was enshrined at Canton in 1988. As a senior co-captain in 1970, Ham had 91 tackles and intercepted four passes. He still shares a pair of defensive records for blocked punts: four in his career, three in his final season. He had 251 career tackles (143 solo). A second-round draft choice of the Steelers in 1971, Ham developed into one of the NFL’s most outstanding linebackers. He starred on all four of the Steelers’ Super Bowl championship teams and was the Defensive Player of the Year in 1975. He is president of a drug testing services company and also works as a radio and television football analyst, including his role with the Penn State Sports Network.

In his senior season, Bowes and the Nittany Lions finished 6-4 and voted down the opportunity to play in the Gator Bowl despite a stunning 27-0 over second-ranked Ohio State and a 28-0 win over Pitt to end the season. Following his graduation, Bowes served as a graduate assistant for the Nittany Lions for the 1965 season before joining the UNH coaching staff. A native of nearby Blanchard, Pa. and Lock Haven High School, Bowes is the winningest coach in Yankee/Atlantic 10 Conference history, posting a 175106-5 record during his 27 seasons (1972-98) as the head coach at the University of New Hampshire. Bowes took the reigns for the Wildcats in 1972, becoming the youngest head coach in program history. He led UNH to four Yankee Conference championships and guided the Wildcats to the NCAA playoffs four times. Bowes will be inducted into the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame as a coach on December 6, 2016.

➤ KEITH DORNEY Keith Dorney, a two-time All-American at tackle for the Nittany Lions in 1977 and 1978, was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame in December 2005.

Dorney was selected an All-American by the Football Writers in 1977 and in 1978 by the Associated Press, Football Writers, the Football Coaches, NEA, The Sporting News, United Press International, and Walter Camp.

The Upper Darby, Pa., native put together three straight 200-yard rushing games in the final month of the season, including a high of 220 against North Carolina State. Cappelletti also received the Maxwell Trophy and was selected as Player of the Year by ABC-TV, United Press International, the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association, the Walter Camp Foundation and the Washington Touchdown Club. He played in the Hula and Senior bowl games. Cappelletti’s career yardage total of 2,639 still ranks him No. 11 on the Lions’ all-time rushing list. His 1973 rushing total is fourth on the school season rushing list to Larry Johnson (2,087), Lydell Mitchell (1,567) and Ki-Jana Carter (1,539). Cappelletti still holds a number of Penn State groundgaining records. A first-round draft choice of the National Football League Los Angeles Rams, Cappelletti played 10 seasons in the professional ranks, six in Los Angeles and four with the San Diego Chargers.
