Lions move to 2-0 with 33-14 win over Pitt

Lions move to 2-0 with 33-14 win over Pitt

Both teams had high hopes for 2017 going into Saturday's game, and Penn State, the heavy favorite, won by a margin of more than two touchdowns, 33-14, to go to 2-0 on the season.

In the end Penn State's defense went into "bend but don't break" mode and did a good job hunkering down in the red zone to keep the Panthers from getting touchdowns but it is something to watch in the coming weeks as Penn State will be competing for a Big Ten championship with the likes of power running offenses like MI and Ohio State.

"I'm not going to speak for them; I know it's a rivalry game for us", Narduzzi said.

Last week, Penn State throttled Akron, 52-0, behind Barkley's 172 rushing yards and two touchdowns before he sat out the entire fourth quarter. It starts with Akron, and we'll go from there from that point after that. Penn State agreed to renew the series in July of 2011, under then AD Tim Curley and head coach Joe Paterno.

The Panthers are coming off a 28-21 win over Youngstown State in the season opener.

As Penn State's starting quarterback, McSorley has always been regarded as a calm, focused and poised leader.

The Lions dropped one spot to No. 5 in this week's AP and USA Today Coaches polls following their 33-14 win over Pitt.

The Nittany Lions are a heavy favorite, and YDR's Frank Bodani believes Penn State will put a hurting on Pitt that will be greater than the 21-point spread.

"It's one game at time", he said.

No. 3 Penn State women's volleyball knocked off No. 4 Stanford for the second time in eight days Saturday night in Champaign, Ill. I think it was the emotions of everything.

"This was cool", said wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton, who dropped a pass behind the Pitt defense past year in the fourth quarter. Those teams scored 30+ in 15 consecutive games.

McSorley connected with Gesicki for 10 yards on the next touchdown. The Panthers crept within 1 but could get no closer. "I've had tons of injuries throughout my career, and it's just that mental aspect of always putting in so much work and not feeling like you're getting the fruits of your labor". "I was joking around with Grant saying that you got to find a way to get into the endzone and get your knees up, but I think the defense did a great job today", junior running back Saquon Barkley added.
