After another Delaware three and out, Allen scored on a four-yard run on to cap off a nine-play, 37-yard drive.

Delaware answered via a 66-yard run by Marcus Yarns to cap off a three-play, 75-yard drive to cut the lead to 14-7.

Penn State led Delaware 14-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Penn State answered on Singleton’s second rushing touchdown of the game on a five-yard touchdown run to cap off a nine-play-75-yard drive to put Penn State up 21-7.

After another Delaware punt, Singleton scored his third rushing touchdown of the half on another five-yard run to cap off a nine-play 73-yard drive.

Penn State extended its lead on an Allar two-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Warren to conclude a six-play 49-yard drive in a two-minute drill that featured a 15-yard completion to Trey Wallace and a 16-yard completion to Lambert-Smith.

Penn State led 35-7 at halftime.

Penn State extended its lead on the first drive of the second half as Allar powered his way on a one-yard quarterback sneak to conclude a ten-play, yard drive that featured runs on 12 and 15 yards by Allen.

After a Delaware fumble, Beau Pribula scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown to put Penn State up 49-7.

Penn State scored again on a 25-yard interception by Dominic Delucia.
