4TH & 1 with 1:04 left. If Penn State gets the stop, they’ll be Big Ten Champs!

Penn States a 38-31 lead with just 5:14 to play. I know they’ve been a second half team all year. But this is incredibly impressive. We’ll see if they can close it out!

Penn State driving as we head to the 4th quarter. Whatever happens, this has been fun!

Landon Stolar December 3, 201610:56 pm

31-28 Badgers. What a game this has turned into! Figures the best conference would yield the best conference title game!

I leave to do our 10PM show on WNEP2 and I come back to see Penn State has tied it up! They’ve been a 2nd half team all year! No quit in this group!

28-14 Wisconsin at the half. The good news? Penn State has been a second half team all year. The Nittany Lions have outscored their opponents by 172 points after halftime this season, the second best mark in the FBS.

It’s not over! That Penn State quick strike offense strikes quickly and it’s 28-14.

Penn State gave away 14 points on the bad snap and then the turnover on downs. They trail 28-7 and they’re in trouble here. 

Landon Stolar December 3, 20169:22 pm

4th and 2 and PSU goes for it on their own side of the field. They don’t get it. Interesting decision. 

Bill Michlowski December 3, 20169:14 pm

Landon Stolar December 3, 20169:14 pm

Well that’s a unfortunate turn of events… Bad snap leads to a Wisconsin touchdown. 21-7

Landon Stolar December 3, 20169:07 pm

First stop for the Penn State defense forcing the first Wisconsin punt of the game. Nittany Lions will get the ball back, down 14-7. 

Landon Stolar December 3, 20168:53 pm

PENN STATE IS ON THE BOARD!!! 33 yard touchdown from Trace McSorley to Mike Gesicki!

Landon Stolar December 3, 20168:52 pm

Penn State in Wisconsin territory for the first time tonight.

Landon Stolar December 3, 20168:47 pm

First time Wisconsin has scored 14 points in the first quarter since they played Illinois on November 12th. They don’t usually score quickly.

67 yard touchdown from Clement and PSU is in an early 14-0 hole. Safe to say this is not the start the Nittany Lions wanted. 

Landon Stolar December 3, 20168:32 pm

So far this game is going exactly according to Wisconsin’s script. Stopped PSU on a 3 & out. Followed that up with a slow, methodical drive for a touchdown. 7-0 Wisconsin.

Saquon Barkley gets his first carry and then limps off the field. Not a great sign.

Penn State will receive the ball to start the game.

      You’re a real adult, whoever you are. Please go back under the rock from which you emerged. People like you who trash anyone (and I’m not only talking about Penn State) are disgusting. Go eat your Cheetos and have a beer and go on with your miserable life and work at the factory or Burger King or wherever you earn your money.

      Hopefully Mike is decent and generous enough to donate a large portion of that to groups that help boys like the one HE left with Sandusky in that locker room and wasn’t man enough to deal with himself!!! He definitely needed the money because he was never, ever going to be a coach anywhere!
