Penn State, Michigan State resume game after weather delay

Penn State, Michigan State resume game after weather delay

The 7th-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions (7-1) meet the 24th-ranked Michigan State Spartans (6-2) in an NCAA college football Big Ten matchup on Saturday, November 4, 2017 (11/4/17) at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan. There is no restart time at this juncture, but we'll pass along an update when the game boots back up.

All season long Penn State's secondary had been lock down.

Prior to the delay, Lions quarterback Trace McSorley threw touchdown passes to DaeSean Hamilton and Saeed Blacknall, moving him past Christian Hackenberg atop Penn State's career passing touchdown list with 49.

Michigan State, on the other hand, seemed to thrive in the poor conditions. On fourth-and-8, McSorley hit Saeed Blacknall who took advantage of missed tackles by cornerbacks Josh Butler and Josiah Scott and safety David Dowell to scoot 27 yards down the sideline for a touchdown and 14-7 lead with 37 seconds left in the first quarter.

The game was halted with 7:58 to go in the quarter on a chilly, rainy day in East Lansing. A weather delay that lasted over three hours and a field that deteriorated quickly made things hard on the Nittany Lions.

Penn State would love to go back and replay the last two weeks. He had 165 yards receiving against Northwestern, a school freshman record.

Both running attacks were limited to under 100 yards each, with the Nittany Lions raking in 65 rushing yards and MSU running for 74 yards. The Spartans took over and then mounted the game-winning drive. Instead of entering the most important part of the season with a well-defined hierarchy of teams, the conference is a jumbled mess. The loss to Michigan State came after a three-hour weather delay.
