Penn State runs all over Army in route to a 58-0 blow out.
As a team, PSU rushed the ball 40 times for 401 yards and 6 TDs.
Super Sophomore Silas Redd led the way by gaining 147 yards and 3 TDs on 16 carries. Redd saw one possession of the 2nd half before handing the reigns over to Seniors Stephon Green and company. The Senior Green also broke the century mark, running for 131 yards on 6 carries, high-lighted by a 74 yard TD run. Back up Fullback Mike Zordich did some damage of his own, rushing for 2 TDs and 63 yards on 7 carries. 3rd string HB Curtis Dukes touched the rock 4 times for 25 yards, 4th string HB Brandon Beachum ran once for 1 yard and starting FB Joe Suhey carried the ball 1 time for 2 yards.
Through the air, starter Rob Bolden went 8-13 for 175 yards, 2 TDs and 1 int. Boldens long completion came on a 46-yard bomb TD to Derek Moye to end the 1st half.
Defensively, PSU came out with 3 sacks and 2 INTs. The starters were out there for the 1st possession of the 2nd half, which starting CB Stephon Morris turned into an INT before they gave way to their back ups.
All in all it was a cake walk to start the season, and the Lions are looking forward to battling Oregon and some real competition next week.
One last note, the safety came on a play where Army intercepted a bomb inside their 5, and the DBs momentum carried him into the endzone, where he was tackled.
Penn State- 17
Went right to bed after the game, so not everything is fresh.
Penn States D led the way to victory by holding Oregon to just over 100 yards of total O and by forcing 4-5 TOs. Oregons lone TD came on a pick 6, then the FG came on a drive already starting in FG Range. The LBs were flying around the field making stops everywhere.
Offensively, the aggressive Oregon D held PSU in check. Oregon blitzed just about every play, making PSU change up the offensive game play. The offense did not score a TD until late in the game to take the 7 point lead. The teams first TD came on a 97-yard KO return by CB Chaz Powell.
QB Rob Bolden struggled getting the ball to his WRs on timing routes. Due to the blitzing, the routes were open, but Bolden consistently sailed the ball. He was also sacked 2-3 times and threw 2 INTs.
We unfortunately had a disconnect with just about 2 minutes left as Oregon got the ball.
The D-Line comes to play as Penn states crushes Akron 56-7
Led by Senior DT Devon Still, the Penn State D-Line combined for 11 sacks and 14TFL. Still tied an NCAA single game record by recording 6 sacks.
Offensively, it was the same old story. Silas Redd and Stephon Green each rushed for over 100 yards, with both tallying 2 TDs.
Rob Bolden had his normal mediocre game going 6-12 for 108 yards, throwing for 2 TDs and 1 INT.
Devon Smith provided a spark to the special teams, returning the opening Kickoff 91 yards for a TD, then later in the 1st returned a punt 58 yards for a TD. He also hauled in a 13 yard TD catch from Bolden, giving him 3 total TDs on the day.
Penn State will look to continue with a dominate running game as they try to bring the passing game up to speed.
Still dominant again as Penn State opens the Big-10 season with a 42-24 victory over Indiana.
Senior DT Devon Still had his second monster game in a row, this time tallying 4 sacks.
Once again it was Sophomore Silas Redd leading the way for the PSU Offense. Redd carried the ball 28 times, gaining 187 yards and 3 TDs.
Sophomore QB Rob Bolden has continued to disappoint and now has the PSU coaches contemplating getting backup QB Matt McGloin some reps this week. Bolden only completed 9 of 24 passes for 175 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT. Its Boldens lack of accuracy, not decision making, leading to these turnovers. However, Bolden showed off his ground game as he rushed for a TD on a bootleg near the goal line.
PSU looks forward to the big conference game against Iowa next week, one in which several recruits will be in attendance.
The D-Line of PSU continues to dominate, as PSU blanks Iowa 24-0.
Once again it was the defensive line who led Penn State to victory as they combined for 6 sacks on the day. Senior DT Devon Still continues on his tear as he registered 3 more sacks, breaking the school record for sacks in a season.
QB Rob Bolden had his best game of the season, completing 9 of 17 passes for 178 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. He also added 30 yards on the ground.
HB Silas Redd found running room tough, as he was held ot a season low 90 yards on 25 carries.
All in all it was a great win in a big conference game, and had to impress the handful of big time recruits that were in attendance.
Penn State- 18
All in all PSU struggled on O to get any points. Bolden only completed 5 of 12 for 50 yards. However he provided the biggest play of the game, a 64 yard TD rush to give PSU its first TD of the game. Silas Redd had another great game, gaining 145 yards to go along with 1 TD.
DT Devon Still broke the single-season school records for sacks, he had 2 on the day, making his season total 18.
PSU picked up 2 big time recruiting, stealing a 4*ATH away from rival Ohio State
Lost by 14 I think, to Northeastern.
Really frustrating game, they scored all on big plays. KO return, pick 6(I think), fumble TD, long TD reception.
Hope I still have a chance at the Rose.
Still beasted another 2 sacks.
