BLOOMINGTON, Ind.— It took longer than many Penn State fans wanted on Saturday against Indiana, but eventually, the Nittany Lions got freshman quarterback Drew Allar on the field.

With the Nittany Lions holding a comfortable 31-7 lead on the Hoosiers, Allar entered the game with 7:29 remaining in the third quarter and remained under center for the rest of the game. That marked the third straight week Allar has played and the first where he came in before the fourth quarter.

Unlike the Nittany Lions’ win over Purdue, where Allar played one series in the third quarter with starter Sean Clifford suffering from cramps, Clifford had no known ailments when he exited the game. The senior played for two series in the third quarter, cashing in the second one for a 96-yard drive that culminated in Kaytron Allen’s third touchdown. Once Indiana went three-and-out for the seventh time in the game, Penn State coach James Franklin saw no reason to leave Clifford in any longer and made the switch to give Allar some meaningful playing time.

Allar closed out the third quarter by driving Penn State into the red zone, eventually leading the Nittany Lions to their fifth touchdown on a drive that ended with this beautiful touchdown pass from Allar to Tre Wallace.

Allar now has two touchdown passes, and Penn State leads, 45-7 in the fourth quarter.
