Penn State Rose Bowl

Amazing second half start so far just wow. Now the defense has to hold up. 42-27.


If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy JM

When the game started, I was begging to wonder when PS was gonna show up, but they are certainly playing a good game now.
Just wish the defense was doing better.

If USC happens to kick the game winning FG, the game was lost when PSU went conservative on 3rd and 4. It's a tough call to make, but a fake to Barkley and do a little roll-out with an option to pass and if it's not there, run it. Hindsight is 20-20, but the announcer also suggested it.

Heck of an offensive game to watch.

Agreed. If the pass option isn't there, just run it and let the chips fall where they may. Defense couldn't put together a stop when they needed it most.

Two big under throws on last drive one almost intercepted and one intercepted was the final nail. Th ultra conservative play calling the series before was a head scratcher.
The defense could not get to the USC quarterback. The pens state corners that were never taught how to cover a receiver another head scratcher. IMO the second pass interference was ticky tacky. Either way the lost a game they very easily could have won in the end.

Was a great game to watch.

Would not have wanted to see the PS defense play the same game against Bama or Clemson. I think it would have been ugly.
PS still had a great year, after all, who expected them to be ranked #5 and playing in the Rose Bowl tonight.

Sad part is that after all the argument about PSU, OSU and Michigan , they all lost, which does not do the big 10 teams any favors.

If you cant hold them under 50 you should lose. Terrible conservative play calling the last 3 possessions. You get the ball with 3 minutes left and up seven that separates the men from the boys. You play as Herm Edwards says "to win the game". Will someone ever pass on first down in that situation to "win the game"? It was tight end time then. They forgot they had one. And the blitzed like ---- all game and then didint at the end. They peed that one away.

Enough with that hate the first half nonsense already !!! The coaching staff doesn't believe in the players and their play calling shows it...just look at what happens when they play wide open which is the only way to play four wide football, scared money never won a dime !!! The coaches went into a 4 quarter shell just trying to hang on, that's not how he lays best...defense really rocked the USC players, big time hits!
