Penn State pummels Rutgers

"I'm personally excited to go back to New Jersey, play a game close to home".

Since joining the Big Ten three seasons ago, the Scarlet Knights have only four conference wins.

They put the pressure squarely on Ash and his coaches, who more than ever will need the patience of a fan base so hopeful when the former Ohio State defensive coordinator arrived as the new sheriff in town. They set punter Michael Cintron up for the Big Ten single-season record - he punted 11 times Saturday night, giving him 89 this season - with one game left to play.

"You look at the stats, we're not even one-dimensional", Ash said. "They bought into what we're doing, they've helped lay the foundation of how we're going to work, how we're going to train, how we're going to practice and just how we're going to conduct ourselves on a day-to-day basis".

Best tackle: Malik Golden broke through and dumped Josh Hicks for an 8-yard loss on the Knights' first play after recovering Sanders' fumble. But this week it is about the seniors. "I think they made some major, major halftime adjustments and they hit us where it hurt in the second half". However, they can't afford a slip-up to lowly Rutgers on the road on Saturday.

But the consistency and longevity with which Rutgers has been non-competitive is fairly jarring.

Graduate of Penn State University and Columbia University. The results have been even worse against the conference's elite.

It wasn't easy for either No. 2 Ohio State or No. 3 MI in their respective tuneups before next week's highly anticipated rivalry clash.

Now, all that matters is next week's opponent, Michigan State, with an enormous amount riding on the game.

For Penn State fans this season is a Cinderella story while for Rutgers fans there have been some growing pains. Sophomore running back Saquon Barkley ran for 92 yards on 16 carries and a touchdown in three quarters for the Nittany Lions, who remained in a three-way tie with Ohio State and MI for first place in the Big Ten East Division. "That was some of our best soccer all year on both sides of the ball".

Then came that fateful first drive of the second half for the Scarlet Knights, the sixth of their 10 punts in the game, and Johnson, the talented redshirt freshman who sprinted through the middle of the Rutgers line with surprisingly little resistance. "Through this coaching change, a lot of the guys are wishing they would be back for another 2-3 years because these guys know what they are talking about, they've been around football, they've been around winning programs". No other things factor into it. PSU has a solid run game behind Saquon Barkley, who has 1,113 yards and 13 touchdowns while QB Trace McSorley has thrown for 2,390 yards and 16 touchdowns while rushing for 304 yards and six more scores. Robert Martin is the leading rusher with 547 yards and a touchdown.

Best pass: McSorley rifled a 22-yard sideline route to Chris Godwin in the third quarter.

Penn State: Coach Patrick Chambers came to Mohegan Sun looking for progress. Hamilton has 43 tackles and a half sack in overcoming a knee injury that caused him to miss nearly all of last season.

Tight end Mike Gesicki said the team has not talked much about the postseason implications in recent weeks. He has had nine catches for 153 yards, including five for 88 yards last weekend.

From flawless kicker Tyler Davis, who somehow led them through when nothing else was working. David Bonagura was then barely wide right on a 45-yard field goal attempt.
