He got his victory. Coming off of back-to-back losses to Ohio State and Michigan State, the Nit- tany Lions didn't indulge in any big-picture think- ing. Instead, they zeroed in on Rutgers, and their focused approach – along with their generally su- perior recruiting – paid off. A?er a shaky first quarter in which the upstart Knights pushed them around on both sides of the ball, the Lions put the hammer down and pulled away for a 35-6 victory on Homecoming.

The trick play set up a third- quarter touch- down that gave the Nit- tany Lions a 21-6 lead over the Scarlet Knights.
