McSorley takes charge as Penn State beats Rutgers

McSorley takes charge as Penn State beats Rutgers

Rutgers (4-6, 3-4) lost to No. 14 Penn State (8-2, 5-2) by a score of 35-6 on Saturday, and though there wasn't much to love for Knights fans, there was a lot more than previous year.

The Penn State Nittany Lions are no doubt glad to be back in the friendly confines of Beaver Stadium after suffering two straight tough losses on the road.

On Penn State's next drive, McSorley completed a 22-yard strike to find Hamilton in the end zone to give the Nittany Lions a 14-6 lead heading into the second half as the Lions offense finally started clicking.

But McSorley took over on the drive after the second field goal, hitting Mike Gesicki for 19 yards and DaeSean Hamilton for 25 to set up his own 20-yard run for the touchdown, and the Lions never trailed again.

Barkley added two rushing touchdowns in the third quarter to salvage what was an otherwise quiet day by the Heisman hopeful. The star tailback finished with 35 rushing yards on 14 carries. Both in the third quarter, one was a 1-yard play and the other a 4-yarder.

Penn State is also 3-0 against the Scarlet Knights since Rutgers joined the Big Ten.

Rutgers fell to 4-6 on the year.

Winter arrived a few weeks early in Piscataway, as several inches of snow covered the High Point Solutions Stadium turf by the time the second half settled in. Quarterback Gio Rescigno completed only seven of 20 passes for 43 yards.

Penn State's offensive line will have moments where it plays adequately or better than that, but it's going to have many more instances when little goes right, and it seems unlikely to change by the end of the regular season.

Rutgers opened the game with a short kickoff in an attempt to keep the ball out of Saquon Barkley's hands. Rutgers ran three plays before Andrew Harte kicked a 33-yard field goal. The Scarlet Knights picked up 239 rushing yards and touchdowns, with Edwards leading the way with 109 yards. Rutgers actually led the Nittany Lions 6-0 into the second quarter. The latter drive included completions of 17 and 10 yards to Johnson and a pass interference penalty against Rutgers. They did score on the next two possessions.

The highlight of the first possession was a hook and ladder play as McSorley found Hamilton, who then lateraled the ball to Barkley, who hurdled a Rutgers defender and nearly scored.

His first TD run came two snaps after a gadget play. It was Penn State's first loss of the season, but the team had control most of the game. Rutgers held Barkley to a season-low 35 yards - yet still gave up 35 points.
