Penn State emerged with a 27-17 victory to improve to 1-5.

Penn State did most of its damage on the ground with freshman Keyvone Lee and junior quarterback Sean Clifford. Lee entered the game with 19 career carries. But Penn State entered the game without its top three running backs, and Lee filled in admirably, finishing the game with 134 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries.

Clifford, back in the starting lineup after getting benched for Will Levis, had only 163 passing yards, but he avoided costly turnovers that have plagued him this season, rushed for 73 yards and a score and made some timely third-down throws to Jahan Dotson on a fourth-quarter scoring drive that gave the Nittany Lions a two-score lead.
