Penn State players help assistant propose to girlfriend after Rutgers win

College Football Total Predictions: Rutgers vs. Penn State 11/11/17

Best pass: McSorley fired a strike to DaeSean Hamilton for a 36-yard gain to the MI 27, setting up McSorley's 3-yard touchdown run late in the first half. The junior completed 16 of 21 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns, and he ran for another score. His 20-yard touchdown run in the second quarter gave Penn State a 7-6 lead with 9:32 left in the second quarter.

Both are precursors to Tuesday's College Football Playoff rankings release; the Lions were No. 14 there a week ago and behind three Big Ten teams, but that number should flip to two after Wisconsin blasted Iowa and Ohio State blew out Michigan State in Columbus. Most telling statistic: Penn State held Rutgers without a first down for 36 minutes, from early in the second quarter until the middle of the fourth quarter.

McSorley threw for two touchdowns, ran for another and set up a pair of Saquon Barkley touchdowns with his arm Saturday to lift the 17-ranked Nittany Lions to a 35-6 victory over Rutgers before a homecoming crowd of 107,531 at Beaver Stadium.

Worst pass: Rutgers quarterback Giovanni Rescigno overshot Hunter Hayek, who was open deep over the middle in the fourth quarter. Four plays later, Barkley scored his second touchdown of the game. They had a 6-0 lead that could have easily been 14-0 if anything came easily for this offense.

Stanford trolls Jameis Winston while celebrating upset over Washington
Washington had only two first downs on the next five drives as the Cardinal adjusted and took control of the game. Stanford can still get a berth to the Pac-12 Championship Game, but it will need some help to make that happen.

Rutgers went for a fake punt on its next drive but Penn State's Brandon Smith smelled it out and made the tackle short of the first down.

Ryan Bates, who was hurt October 28 against Ohio State, missed his second game with an undisclosed injury.

Penn State was without starting outside linebacker Manny Bowen, who was suspended for a violation of team rules. They're built to pound the ball and Rescigno showed off some scrambling ability to give Rutgers its best shot.
