Written by AJ Rovner on September 11, 2022
Penn State opened its home schedule defeating Ohio by a score of 46-10. The win improves the Nittany Lions record to 2-0, while the Bobcats fall to 1-1.
WELCOME HOME DREW
Drew Allar took his first snaps as a Nittany Lion at Beaver Stadium to a very nice ovation. Allar made his official collegiate debut as a Penn Stater last week at Purdue where he went 2/4 for 26 yards. His first drive as a Nittany Lion at Beaver Stadium was a 5 play, 70 yard drive that ended in a 32-yard passing touchdown from Allar to Omari Evans. As for the day as a whole, Allar went 6/8 for 88 yards and 2 TD’s while also adding 5 carries for 11 yards. “For a young kid the game seems slow to him,” Franklin said.
CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG
Sean Clifford played his final home opener as a Nittany Lion and he had a very nice day. “Cliff” only played into the early stages of the third quarter since the game was in hand by that point. Clifford went 19/27 for 213 yards and also added a rushing touchdown. Obviously, a much tougher task awaits Clifford and company next week when they go to face the Tigers of Auburn.
There’s no other way to put it, this kid is spectacular. The fact that Singleton is a true freshman and the impact he has made is nothing short of remarkable. Singleton had two touchdowns of 70 and 44 yards where he made defenders look silly on both plays. He finished the day with 10 carries for 179 yards while also adding a reception.
After surrendering 31 points to Purdue. Manny Diaz’s defense made a statement on the defensive side of the ball in a get-right game before Auburn. Diaz’s defense only allowed 10 points and 258 yards of total offense. The Bobcats also went 4-14 on third down and allowed 3 points in the second half. Ohio doesn’t have guys like Tank Bigsby, but this is a confidence booster for Diaz and company.
Penn State will take a trip next Saturday to Jordan-Hare Stadium to take on the Auburn Tigers. That game is at 3:30 P.M. and you can catch it on CBS. As for Ohio, their next game will be a trip to Jack Trice Stadium to take on Iowa State. That game is at 2:00 P.M. and you can catch that on BIG12/ESPN+.
