Miles Sanders is having some kind of homecoming.

The running back from Woodland Hills and Penn State broke loose for a 74-yard TD run for the Eagles in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.

Sanders later scored a 1-yard TD in the second quarter to tie the game at 14.

Update: 12:20 p.m.

Penn State should move up two spots in this week’s rankings after two teams ahead of them, Florida and Miami, both lost Saturday.

PSU is No. 8 in the coaches poll and No. 9 in the AP poll. Florida was No. 3 and 4, respectively, in those polls, while Miami was No. 7 in both. The Gators lost at Texas A&M on a last-second field goal, and Miami was blown out by Clemson.

Both new polls will be released this afternoon.

Update: 9 a.m.

Check back throughout the day as we follow Penn State alums playing in the NFL today.

One huge matchup in PA will be the Steelers hosting the Eagles and former PSU running back Miles Sanders. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin had some good praise for Sanders, saying he’s the key to stopping the Eagles’ offense.
