No. 9 Penn State wins 7th straight

Whether Penn State is good enough to run the table, get to and win the Big Ten is questionable.

Shep Garner had 20 points to lead Penn State (2-3), after scoring 15 in the team's 10-point loss Saturday to top-ranked Duke.

He joins a long list of recruits that have eluded the Scarlet Knights in recent memory.

Frank Bodani talks through Penn State's huge win against Rutgers and what to expect in the future.

One of the best lines of the night was heard in the press box in the third quarter when somebody said, "Don't they have tech falls (technical falls) in football?"

Make sure you don't confuse Rutgers fans for having a lack of passion; they came out strong for the "Battle at the Birthplace" wrestling match against Princeton earlier in the day. The Nittany Lions are going to be able to score plenty of points on this Rutgers defense and they shouldn't have any trouble holding the Knights' offense down.

One bright spot for Rutgers in the first half was its ability to stop Penn State on fourth-and-goal from the 2.

Maryland (5-5, 2-5) at No. 19 Nebraska (8-2, 5-2), 11 a.m., ESPNews: Maryland is "enjoying" its welcome-to-the-Big Ten schedule with MI (a 59-3 loss), Ohio State (a 62-3 loss) and Nebraska back-to-back-to-back. Penn State's current record is 10-2, they are 8-1 in the Big 10 conference. After entering midway through the second quarter, Houston led the Badgers on an 87-yard drive that was capped by Ingold's 1-yard plunge for a 7-3 lead.

Worst play: There are a handful to pick from. "It's still in our reach, and we've got to go out there and take it".

Rutgers averaged less than two yards a play on its 50 offensive plays, finishing 1 of 14 on third-down attempts. Ziemer raced forward to collect the ball, dribbling forward for a one-on-one as the Penn State keeper came out to meet her 12 yards out.

Clemson Remains in Top Four of College Football Playoff Poll
Rhetoric has spilled over from the political backdrop into the College Football Rankings this Monday, November 14, 2016. Path to the playoff: Despite the disappointing home loss to Pittsburgh, I believe Clemson still controls its destiny.

Penn State, which in early October heard scuttlebutt about coach James Franklin being on the hot seat, has won six games in a row and would play in the Big Ten title game by winning twice and seeing Ohio State defeat MI.

The junior had just 13 catches in 2015, his first year as a starter, and was known more for his problems with drops. Despite everything, McSorley finished 17 for 33 for 210 yards through the air, and was 11 for 55 on the ground. The final score was 39-0. Rutgers' defense was scrappy and bent but did not break the entire first half.

Where: High Point Solutions Stadium, Piscataway, New Jersey. He said it was Rutgers' first Big Ten win, against MI in 2014, despite the fact he didn't play because of an injury.

They've taken care of beating the teams they were supposed to - Minnesota, Maryland, Purdue, Indiana and presumably Rutgers - and they still have a couple of barometers left.

The announced crowd for the game was 51,366, but by the end, one could practically count the amount of fans remaining at the game late in the fourth quarter. That catch gave Gesicki 42 catches for the season to set the new record. It had 39 yards of offense in the 78-0 loss to MI on October 8.

I want to thank our seniors, Nickolette Driesse and Angela Widlacki. Cintron's punt was blocked after Penn State forced Rutgers into a three-and-out on its first possession.

Davis hit from 32, 34 and 40 yards, the first two into a stiff wind.

IN (5-5, 3-4) at No. 4 MI (9-1, 6-1), 2:30 p.m., ESPN: Jim Harbaugh played coy this week about the collarbone injury suffered by quarterback Wilton Speight at Iowa.

Heading into an 8 p.m. kickoff at Rutgers, Gesicki is among 19 Nittany Lions listed on Penn State's opening-week roster now returned to their native Garden State.

The Lions starred on special teams with four Tyler Davis' field goals, a punt block and almost another.
