It was a game many Penn State fans, players, and coaches will never forget!

The Nittany Lions hosted undefeated Michigan on Saturday night, and were determined to hand the Wolverines their first loss of 2013.

Penn State trailed by seven with under a minute to play in regulation, when Christian Hackenberg was able to drive the team down the field, and score.

A flurry of missed field goals, blocked field goals, turnovers, and game-tying scores, sent this showdown into four overtimes.

With a gutsy 4th and 1 play, and the help of a pass interference call, the Nittany Lions marched all the way to the 1 yard line. Then it was perfectly designed run by Bill Belton, into the endzone, to end the game after four and a half hours of play.

Penn State won 43-40, in a thriller that will be talked about for years to come.

Our Sports Director, Jim Coles, was on the sidelines and in a very Happy Valley to report on the victory.
