Pittsburgh at Penn State (#4) - Start time 8:30pm

Clemson not expecting Hurricane Irma-related changes to Auburn game

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Penn State is the clear favorite in this game, as the Nittany Lions are getting odds of -21.5 points against the Panthers.

"He's a great player", cornerback Grant Haley said of Henderson. It also served as a spring board of sorts for Penn State. Trace McSorely completed 18 of 25 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns against an interception while Tommy Stevens threw for 42 yards in 3-for-6 passes. "They had a lot of long drives that we could have ended on multiple third downs".

In the second quarter, Pitt once again wasted or dropped a chance to cut the lead in half.

Then there was the take of safety Marcus Allen, who contributed a game-high 12 tackles and a safety to Saturday's effort.

Backup quarterback Ben DiNucci ran for a touchdown and Alex Kessman kicked two field goals for the Panthers. To a certain extent the Panthers were running short yardage plays that are hard to stop from gaining yards, but 38 minutes on the field is a tough ask down the road. Saquon Barkley climbed up among the Heisman contenders around the country.

Realistically it's impossible to completely shutdown a player like Barkley as Pitt's defense found out early in the third quarter.

As Penn State's starting quarterback, McSorley has always been regarded as a calm, focused and poised leader.But when the fourth-ranked Nittany Lions played Pittsburgh Saturday, McSorley admitted that his nerves affected him because he remembered the late interception he threw in the end zone past year."I was a little bit jittery", he said. Also, former Pitt quarterback Nathan Peterman and running back James Connor who were integral in last year's win have moved on to the NFL.

Penn State will play on BTN live Sunday, Oct. 15 starting at 3:00 p.m.as the Nittany Lions take on Maryland in College Park, Md.

The teams haven't met in Beaver Stadium since 1999. Had any in the announced crowd of 109,898 glanced away from the proceedings, they might have missed the game-altering sequence given Barkley's sprinter speed. The Panthers crept within 14, but could get no closer. Penn State recognized its 1982 National Championship team at halftime and unveiled 2016 numbering along the suites of the stadium to honor its Big Ten championship from last season.

The fans view the showdown with a different game plan.

The game started much easier for him. After starting shaky, the linebackers were effective and although they only produced one sack, the defensive line were physical and disruptive. The matchup was the first between the two in-state foes in 16 years. Check out our new site PittsburghHockeyNow.com for the best Pittsburgh Penguins news and opinion.
