Welcome to “First 60 After 60,” a new Nittany Sports Now feature that captures the immediate aftermath of a Penn State football game at Beaver Stadium.
After Penn State’s win over Maryland this past Saturday, I walked on the field along with other media members to see what I could see.
Of course, I saw a bunch of happy Nittany Lions since the team just wrapped up a 30-0 win over the Terps that was every bit as lopsided as the final score showed.
One of the first things I saw was Athletic Director Patrick Kraft clapping him hands in approval.
I also saw both starting quarterbacks from the game engaging in friendly conversation. Penn State’s Sean Clifford and Maryland’s Taulia Tagovailoa had just wrapped up their third and final meeting. Tagovailoa and Maryland won the first one, 35-19, in 2020 at Beaver Stadium. Clifford and Penn State won the middle meeting, 31-14, in College Park the next season, then won the rubber match in convincing fashion, with Clifford breaking Penn State’s all-time passing record in the process.
Here are the “First 60 After 60” from Penn State-Maryland.
