Penn State And Michigan State Got Stuck In A Never-Ending Weather Delay

The Nittany Lions lead 14-7 with just under eight minutes left in the second quarter.

One of the odd developments following Penn State's upset loss to Michigan State on Saturday was what happened just after the game ended.

Penn State's Trace McSorley was 26-for-47 passing for 381 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Thanks to heavy rain and some sparse lightning strikes, the earliest the Nittany Lions will be back on the field is 5:30 p.m., according to officials at Michigan State.

For the second week in a row, Penn State's defense needed one more stop in the game's dying moments. The sophomore finished with 400 passing yards in the Spartans' biggest win of the season so far.

Long-time Penn State radio voice Steve Jones said he couldn't ever recall a Lions game being delayed during play, although the 2000 game against Ohio State in Columbus was pushed back a half-hour due to weather. The Spartans turned the ball over on downs before knotting the score on their next drive. Penn State head coach James Franklin was then seeing running around the field and rounding up some of his players to keep them from exiting Spartan Stadium.

Freshman kicker Matt Coghlin sealed the game with a 34-yard field goal, knocking through his second kick of the fourth quarter.

On first down, Lewerke made a pair of play-action fakes before connecting on a 33-yard touchdown pass to Felton Davis, who made a full-extension dive into the end zone to tie the game at 14-14 with 3:54 left in the second quarter.

To tell the truth, the Spartans have overachieved, and, as a fan, I think we should be happy with where this team is now.

The Lions lost a one-point heart breaker at Ohio State last week while the Spartans went three overtimes in their loss at Northwestern.
