Trace McSorley sets TD record in Penn State's win over Rutgers

Spd7qrgqz5ikohb6ztsf

But aside from Barkley, Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley can burn a defense too and will play with a chip on his shoulder following his three interception game a week ago in the loss at Michigan State. McSorley's top receiver is DaeSean Hamilton with 36 catches for 606 yards and 6 touchdowns. McSorley faces Nebraska next.

Penn State coach James Franklin hopes the Lions are ready to stop the losing at two games in a row.

With the College Football Playoff and back-to-back Big Ten titles off the table, Penn State can focus on finishing off its last three games to finish off their first 10-win regular season since way back in 2009.

The Nittany Lions defeated Rutgers 35-6.

The start was not pretty but the finish was, as the Lions rolled to a 35-6 victory in front of a Homecoming crowd of 107,531 at Beaver Stadium. He completed 16 passes in 21 attempts for 214 yards and the two scores, while rushing 13 times for 44 yards and one TD.

That mid-second quarter touchdown gave Penn State a lead it would not give up, as it would follow that up with 2 touchdowns from Barkley and 1 apiece for Gesicki and Hamilton.


The Scarlet Knights didn't get a first down in the second half until their final drive, which ended in a turnover on downs.

The second half, like many second halves for Rutgers this season, was less than stellar, with the defense allowing 3 touchdowns and the offense only collecting 79 of its 200 total yards.

Rutgers opened the game with a short kickoff in an attempt to keep the ball out of Saquon Barkley's hands.

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. The Scarlet Knights picked up 239 rushing yards and touchdowns, with Edwards leading the way with 109 yards. Harte capped the drive with a 25-yard field goal less than four minutes into the second quarter. The Nittany Lions took a 14-6 lead into the break and never looked back. The latter drive included completions of 17 and 10 yards to Johnson and a pass interference penalty against Rutgers.

Barkley took a hook and lateral play 14 yards to set up his 1-yard score, leaping over a defender in the process. Barkley went over left guard for the TD two plays later.

In case it wasn't clear from the video, Penn State tweeted out that Sorrell's girlfriend did, indeed, say yes. Barkley has 864 rush yards with 9 touchdowns.
