Penn State vs. Rutgers: The last meeting

The Nittany Lions are now 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten.

Penn State received the opening kickoff. However the start of Saturday's game with Rutgers didn't go as planned. McSorley was blasted this week for being a major reason why Penn State is toast in the playoff hunt. Penn State is giving up an average of just 14.8 points and 331.4 yards per game while the offense is putting up 38 points and 443.6 yards per contest. You can find the BTN on your TV here.

The stifling defense allowed Penn State to pull away and put the game out of reach early in the second half.

Gesicki tied Jesse James, now with the Pittsburgh Steelers, for the most touchdowns by a Penn State tight end in school history with 11.

No matter, the Lions shook it off after the break, outgaining the visitors 151-79 and outscoring them 21-0 as the game was hardly ever in question.

Saquon Barkley ran for a 1-yard touchdown and a 4-yard score in the third quarter for Penn State. He's rushed for 630 yards and six touchdowns and is load to tackle once he gets going, which could be an issue for a Penn State defense that didn't tackle well at all a week ago or even two weeks ago at Ohio State.

The McSorley-to-Gesicki touchdown in the fourth quarter was the ninth and final play of a 62-yard drive. McSorley's top receiver is DaeSean Hamilton with 36 catches for 606 yards and 6 touchdowns.

But Rutgers will likely rely on the rushing attack.

Gio Rescigno converted a fourth-and-1 from the Rutgers 44 with a 3-yard sneak, and later scurried about the pocket before completing a 12-yard pass to Mohamed Jabbie on third-and-9.

Penn State did not play its best game on Saturday against Rutgers, but a win is a win.
