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

No. 7 Penn State leads the No. 24 Spartans 14-7 with 7:58 left in the second quarter. The first step will be taking down Penn State University and their Heisman Trophy candidate running back Saquon Barkley.

Khari Willis led Michigan State with 11 tackles, David Dowell had two interceptions and Joe Bachie one.

Michigan State responded with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Lewerke to Darrell Stewart Jr. for the first first-quarter touchdown Penn State allowed all season.

It is the third time a game at Spartan Stadium has been delayed.

The tie didn't last long as Penn State scored on the following possession and benefited from poor tackling by Michigan State. With just more than four minutes left and the game tied at 24, Penn State went for it on 4th-and-3 and ended up turning the ball over on the Spartans' 31-yard line.

Kickoff of Saturday night's game at MI was moved back to an estimated 8:30 p.m. The Spartans turned the ball over on downs before knotting the score on their next drive. Davis' best catch of the game came just minutes after both teams returned to the field.

Coach James Franklin, who has helped pull Penn State back into the national conversation during the last two seasons, has now had 10 opportunities to beat a ranked opponent on the road in his head-coaching career.

Freshman kicker Matt Coghlin sealed the game with a 34-yard field goal, knocking through his second kick of the fourth quarter. But, the Nittany Lions couldn't help themselves.

Seventh-rated Penn State entered the game as a 9-point favorite after its first loss of the season, 39-38 at Ohio State a week ago.

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