Penn State Starts Slow, finishes Strong in 28-0 win over Rutgers

After an ugly first half, Penn State pulled away in the final 30 minutes behind backup quarterback Christian Veilleux for a 28-0 win over Rutgers (5-6, 2-6) on Senior Day at Beaver Stadium.

The true freshman from Ottawa, Onterio, went 15-24 for 235 yards and three touchdown passes in relief of Sean Clifford, who departed due to injury toward the end of the first quarter.

After 28 minutes and 57 seconds of nobody scoring any points, Penn State (7-4, 4-4) finally drew first blood when Veilleux hit Jahan Dotson for an 8-yard touchdown. Jordan Stout’s extra point made it 7-0.

Penn State added on in the second half when Parker Washington caught a 17-yard touchdown from Vallieux while being interfered with.

The Nittany Lions put the game away on their ensuing drive. Veilleux hit redshirt freshman and fellow Canadian Malick Meiga for a 67-yard score. It was Meiga’s first touchdown reception as a Nittany Lion. Keyvone Lee’s 7-yard run was the icing on the cake.

Penn State will end its regular season next weekend in East Lansing against Michigan State. Kickoff time has yet to be announced.
