In his second career start, quarterback Christian Hackenberg broke the school record for freshman passing yardage with 311 yards. Running backs Bill Belton and Akeel Lynch each gained 108 yards to help Penn State roll to 574 yards, its highest total in five years. The Penn State defense held the Eagles to no points, 183 yards and just two first downs in the second half.
