Penn State, Michigan State resume game after weather delay

Penn State, Michigan State resume game after weather delay

Big Ten Network will televise, and the game doubles as Homecoming.

Both running attacks were limited to under 100 yards each, with the Nittany Lions raking in 65 rushing yards and MSU running for 74 yards.

Michigan State already prevailed this season against a top-10 team in the rain and under the lights. Davis had an impressive run-after-the catch for a 36-yard gain, true freshman Hunter Rison had back-to-back first-down grabs and LJ Scott scored on a 3-yard run for a 21-14 advantage. After the weather delay, the Spartans would score thanks to a 33-yard touchdown pass from Brian Lewerke to Felton Davis III. That means that should Ohio State and Penn State each win out, it will be the Buckeyes playing in the conference title game in Indianapolis - just days before Heisman Trophy ballots are due.

QB Trace McSorley - McSorley posted his second-highest career passing yardage total with 381 yards through the air (384 vs. Wisconsin, 2016) on 26-of-47 passing with three touchdown passes and three interceptions. He also completed one pass for 20 yards. His eight grabs vaulted him into a tie for No. 11 all-time at Penn State, moving up four spots into a tie with Bryant Johnson (1999-2002) at 110 receptions. Penn State took a 24-21 lead on the final play of the third quarter, but could not hold on to the lead. Also rushed seven times for 25 yards in the game.

After the loss, Penn State players ran off the field.

Mark Hollis said during halftime there wasn't any talks about postponing the game to a later date when talking with Penn State Athletic Director Sandy Barbour, MSU Deputy Athletic Director Greg Ianni and MSU's police department.

Penn State returns to Beaver Stadium to host Rutgers for Homecoming Saturday at noon on BTN.
