Kaytron Allen scored three touchdowns on the ground, and Drew Allar threw for two touchdowns as Penn State established its dominance from start to finish as they demolished Indiana by the score of 45-14 at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana, Saturday.

On their second drive of the game, Penn State struck first when Nicholas Singleton scored on a one-yard touchdown run that capped off a ten-play, 54-yard drive that featured a fantastic catch by Mitchell Tinsley for a 27-yard gain.

Indiana answered back on its next possession when Jack Tuttle found his tight end AJ Barner for an 11-yard touchdown reception to cap off an eight-play, 75-yard drive that featured Tuttle going 4-for-4 on the drive and a 15-yard run for a first down.

After a Sean Clifford interception on Penn State’s next possession, the defense held serve with back-to-back sacks from Adisa Isaac and Ji’Ayir Brown.

The score was tied at seven at the end of the first quarter.
Penn State got back on the board on an 11-yard touchdown run by Allen that capped off a two-play, 38-yard drive where Allen accounted for all the yards. Allen caught a 27-yard pass from Clifford on the previous play.

Penn State scored again on its next possession. Allen scored his second touchdown on a six-yard run that capped off an eight-play, 85 yards drive that featured five straight runs up the middle to cap off the drive.

After forcing a three and out, Jake Pinegar kicked a 50-yard field goal to cap off an eight-play, 13-yard drive to put Penn State up 24-7, and that was the score at halftime.

In the third quarter, after Kalen King intercepted a Brendan Sorsby pass, Penn State capitalized on its opportunity by going on a six-play, 96-yard drive that ended in Allen scoring his third touchdown of the game on a six-yard run. The drive was highlighted by one of the best catches made all season in college football by Brenton Strange for 25 yards on a 3rd and five. Then on the next play, Allen took a swing pass and looked like he was going to be stopped for a two-yard gain, but he broke free and turned it into a 45-yard reception.

As Indiana was driving down the field into the red zone, they were faced with a 4th and three at the 18-yard line when Dain Dennis-Sutton intercepted a pass from Dexter Williams.
Penn State led 31-7 at the end of the third quarter.

On the second play of the fourth quarter, Allar threw a one-yard touchdown to Trey Wallace that capped off a 10-play, 64-yard drive as he showed why he was a five-star prospect coming out of high school.

On Indiana’s next drive, Daequan Hardy intercepted a pass from Williams deep in the Indiana territory. That led to Allar throwing his second touchdown pass of the game on the next play with a four-yard touchdown pass to Theo Johnson.
Indiana finally got back on the board on a one-yard touchdown run by

Jaylen Lucas to cap off an eight-play, 40-yard drive.
Penn State will return to Beaver Stadium next Saturday to host Maryland, while Indiana will travel to Columbus to face Ohio State.
