Another impressive come from behind win for Penn State and Bill O’Brien yesterday as the Nittany Lions beat No. 24 Northwestern 39-28 after trailing by 11 going into the fourth quarter.
One thing we have learnt from this Penn State side, is that after all they have been through over the last year, they are not going to quit when they fall behind.
The Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) scored three times in the final 9:49, starting with McGloin’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Allen Robinson on fourth down as the receiver dragged along the back line of the end zone. Michael Zordich had a 2-point conversion run to get Penn State within 28-25 before Quarterback Matt McGloin’s scramble for a score sent the homecoming weekend crowd into a frenzy.
