2015 Penn State Nittany Lions Penn State vs Connecticut Penn State bounces back from a tough week one loss to Florida State to beat the Huskies 24-10. The Nittany Lions jumped out of the gate quickly by scoring 24 points in the first half, but were held scoreless the rest of they way. The offense was without Watkins for most of the game as he got hurt on the first drive. A reason for concern if you are a Nittany Lions fan is the lack of pass defense displayed against the Huskies. Penn State gave up 288 yards passing, including a 71 yarder, to a normally inept passing squad. After Connecticut scored on the first play of the game it was all Penn State as they reeled off 24 unanswered. UConn would add a second half field goal to make the final 24-10.
