Penn State is pulling away from Northwestern.
With Penn State ahead 20-10 and 4:10 left in the third quarter, Northwestern lined up to punt.
But the team called a fake, and true freshman Zion Tracy tackled Northwestern’s Charlie Mangieri short of the line to gain.
Penn State then cashed in with a 7-play, 34-yard scoring drive that ended with a two-yard pass from Drew Allar to Nicholas Singleton to put Penn State up 26-10. Alex Felknins’ extra point made it 27.
Watch both plays here.
No. 6 @PennStateFball wasn't fooled.
The Nittany Lions stuff the fake punt, and take over in Northwestern territory.
