The College Five: Games to watch in Week 2 of College Football

Todd Blackledge sneaks across the goal line to score the game-tying touchdown in Penn State’s eventual 48-14 win at No. 1 Pittsburgh on Nov. 28 1981 one of the rivalry’s most memorable games

McSorley completed 15 of 28 passes for 164 yards, helping the Nittany Lions avenge a loss to their in-state rivals a year ago.

In the end Penn State's defense went into "bend but don't break" mode and did a good job hunkering down in the red zone to keep the Panthers from getting touchdowns but it is something to watch in the coming weeks as Penn State will be competing for a Big Ten championship with the likes of power running offenses like MI and Ohio State. I think just overall, our defense, that's the kind of team we want to be.

Is there any doubt this rivalry is on?

This is the first time since 2012, when the Nittany Lions defeated Cornell (2-0), Lock Haven (5-0) and Lehigh (8-0) in consecutive games, that Penn State has recorded three-straight shutouts. "This win is no more significant than last week". "This was just like beating Akron for us". After a dominant Week 1 victory against Akron, Penn State looks primed to contend for a spot in the college football playoff.

Freshman Alessia Russo watched as her shot from outside the box was deflected over the crossbar by Penn State goalkeeper Rose Chandler with just under three minutes to play-ending UNC's chances of tying the affair. "That's what we focus on here at Penn State, and we hold ourselves to that standard".

Harry came over to have a look at the picture which had left his older brother in stitches and William said: "Look at my shades". Princess Diana's sons, Prince William and Prince Harry , visited a growing memorial outside her former home, Kensington Palace.

It may not play in Pittsburgh, but Franklin stood behind his comment as an extension of his coaching staff's philosophy: The next game on the schedule is the biggest of the season. "I've been saying the same thing for years". "That's something that I think is kind of a silver lining for us, that we can keep pushing toward that".

The teams haven't met in Beaver Stadium since 1999. That's the only point I felt disrespected on.

On the ground, Saquon Barkley rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns in 14 attempts while McSorely added 48 yards and a touchdown in 12 carries.

Penn State's defense has eight sacks and 23 tackles for loss in two games. In the third quarter, he beat linebacker Saleem Brightwell down the middle of the field to catch a 46-yard touchdown pass from McSorley, which made it 21-3.

There was a time, before the two most prominent football programs in Pennsylvania went on a 16-year hiatus, when the annual Penn State-Pitt game was one of college football's most hate-infused rivalries.
