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.
