Quotes from the news wire:
It took a lengthy replay review to confirm the initial call and when the official made the announcement Penix knew was coming, the wild celebration began inside the mostly empty stadium. Allen needed to pull out every trick in the book, too, especially afterSean Cliffordhooked up with Jahan Dotson on a 60-yard TD pass to give Penn State Penn State first lead of the second half, 21-20 with 2:30 left in regulation. Penn State sacked Penix on the next two plays, forced him to throw the ball away on third and an incompletion on fourth, taking the ball back on down at the Indiana 14. This time, Allen called for the defense to give up the touchdown, hoping for one more possession, and Devyn Ford obliged with a TD run that gave Penn State a 28-20 lead. We went through that situation this week. We went through that situation on the sideline. Obviously, we could have handled it better and I could have handled it better.
THE TAKEAWAY Penn State : The mistakes proved costly. Penn State coach James Franklin will be on major clean-up duty this week after seeing three red-zone possessions end without points, three missed field goals, two interceptions, one lost fumble, a muffed punt and a fumbled kickoff return in addition to Fords late TD run and the late defensive breakdowns. Indiana : This victory is a huge step for the program. Allen know the Hoosiers need to start beating ranked teams more consistently, and this one came on a day the defense played reasonably well and the offense managed only 221 yards 19:35 of possession time. POLL IMPLICATIONS Penn State will slip in the Top 25, perhaps precipitously. The defense played well but broke down late while the offense and special teams werent anywhere near championship caliber. Its turnovers and penalties.
