Penn State Pulls off Impressive Second Half

Penn State is impressive in their third straight win. The 14.5 Point favorite Penn State welcomed the 2-5 Michigan State Spartans to Beaver Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Payton Thorne (22 of 39 for 325 yards and three second quarter touchdowns) had an unworldly first half (11 for 13 with 202 yards) in his first career start for the Spartans.

Penn State made adjustments and outscored MSU by a score of 29-3. A Dominating second half,  in every aspect of the game. This is including an electrifying 81-yard punt return by Jahan Dotson to seal the deal.

The rejuvenated, Sean Clifton (17 of 27 for 232 and a sweet up the gut 31 yard jaunt was just what the doctor ordered for PSU. Clifton rushed 9 times and picked up 48 yards. More importantly, Clifton did not turn the ball over.

Back up, Will Levis chipped in a 1-yard rushing touchdown and added 36 yards on his 15 touches. Levis finally had a chance to showcase his arm and went 3-for-3 for another 54 yards.

Penn State has now ripped off three straight wins and have seemed to put the dismal 0-5 in the rear view mirror. The Lions wait to see who and where they play next week as the playoff format kicks off.
