Penn State, Michigan State resume game after weather delay

No. 1 Penn State Outlasts No. 10 MSU for Key Road Win

Penn State vs. Michigan State Delayed Hours Due to Lightning

Saturday's Michigan State vs Penn State game might be one of the most underrated of the afternoon slate.

Check back to timesleader.com for full updates from the game.

It was Michigan State's second win against a No. 7 opponent after beating Michigan 14-10 in Ann Arbor on October 7.

Penn State suffered a brutal loss for a second straight week, but head coach James Franklin was not going to let his players leave the field without shaking hands.

It was 1:15 p.m. when Penn State and Michigan State players were forced back into their locker rooms and fans were ordered to exit Spartan Stadium. Wisconsin is at No. 6 - the best in the Big Ten.

A week after lighting up the Nittany Lions with 39 points and 6.78 yards per play, the Buckeyes repeatedly went nowhere against the Hawkeyes' defense, managing a season-low 371 total yards and holding the ball nearly 10 minutes less than them. But they close the season with a road game against a MI team that'll be eager to foil their postseason hopes, and more importantly, Ohio State doesn't look like CFP-caliber outfit right now.

What seems like a commonality, another MSU wide receiver had a career day as Davis III brought in 12 receptions for 181 receiving yards and a touchdown.


Halftime allowed the Spartans to make adjustments to take the lead because of a three-yard touchdown run by LJ Scott.

Khari Willis led Michigan State with 11 tackles, David Dowell had two interceptions and Joe Bachie one.

Trace McSorley threw for 381 yards and three touchdowns for Penn State, but star Saquon Barkley was held in check.

Here are some other quick takeaways from Saturday's win against No. 7 Penn State. Following an entertaining first quarter which ended with the Nittany Lions up by a 14-7 score, lightning in the area shut down the party.

Michigan State has lost 10 fumbles this season, tied for the most in the conference.

Long-time Penn State radio voice Steve Jones said he couldn't ever recall a Lions game being delayed during play, although the 2000 game against Ohio State in Columbus was pushed back a half-hour due to weather.
