    Ole Miss had the ball to start the game, but two sacks equaled a three and out. Penn State had a long drive that was stopped just short and resulted in a field goal and a 3-0 lead. Ole Miss responded by driving the field the rest of the first quarter. On the second play of the second quarter, facing 3rd and 1, Lee Dahl found Jacob Gray out of the backfield for a touchdown and a 7-3 Ole Miss advantage.

    Penn State had a first down at midfield on the next drive but a sack led to a 2nd and 12. On the next play the QB tried to take off but the inside was bottled up pretty good and it resulted in a fumble, which Ole Miss recovered. A few plays later Dahl threw his second touchdown pass, this time to Gavin Fine on a little crossing route and it was 14-3. The momentum swing turned out to be huge for the Rebels.

    Ole Miss forced a 3rd and 9 and Penn State threw one up for grabs downfield and the prayer wasn't answered. They were forced to punt, and this is where Marquice Caldwell began to take control of the game. Caldwell had several key runs on the next drive but Dahl was slightly late on a throw to a wide-open receiver in the end zone, so it was out of bounds. With the half ending, Ole Miss settled for a field goal.

    Down 17-3, Penn State wasn't about to panic. They planned to put cleat marks on our necks while getting the game back under control. They had several key runs to open the second half, running the ball several straight times to start the second half. But Ole Miss tightened up near the goal line, making a nice goal-line stand against the run. QB Stark tried to throw a quick slant, and OLB Trevor Huff picked it off in the end zone. After a 2-yard run to start the drive, Caldwell took a handoff up the middle, broke two tackles and then ran down the sideline for a gain of 60+ yards, and only went down after breaking another tackle. The next play was an 11-yard Caldwell run up the middle for a 24-3 lead.

    At this point the wheels were pretty much completely off for Penn State. Despite getting the ball close to the red zone on the next drive, the Nittany Lions ended up throwing another interception (this time to the other OLB Shane Weber) and Caldwell again immediately converted the mistake into points with a long touchdown run up the middle on the next play. The Rebels kept playing good defense (causing and recovering a fumble on a kickoff return, and Trevor Huff getting his second INT of the game) and kicked a couple of field goals for the 37-3 final score.

    GG jms493 ... Tough performance by your squad not playing up to their potential.
