Heartbreaking loss for Nittany Lions

Penn State was a slim 6.5-point favorite on the road against Minnesota, as both teams entered Saturday's Big Ten matchup with flawless 8-0 records.

The College Football Playoff selection committee showed its skepticism with Minnesota by ranking it all the way down at No. 17 despite an 8-0 record.

Penn State's defense could do little to slow down Tanner Morgan and the rest of the Gophers' offense. The loss will also hurt the Nittany Lions in the CFP pecking order, with the Gophers getting a boost but still with a long way to go to be in the mix. Golden Gophers receiver Rashod Bateman provided it early with a huge 66-yard touchdown. Sean Clifford finished his day with three interceptions.

The Penn State field hockey team (7-11, 4-4 Big Ten) upset the Michigan Wolverines (13-6, 5-3 Big Ten) 2-1 in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals on Thursday afternoon at the Penn State Field Hockey Complex.

Defensively, the Gophers allowed Penn State 518 yards but made impact plays. Minnesota's lead was 14-10 entering the second quarter, but an interception from Clifford - his second of the first half - gave the ball back to the Gophers. The Golden Gophers are going to need to run the football and play defense here in order to hang around with Penn State.

Parsons, the major tackler on the team and a single of the finest recruits on Penn State's roster, apparently did not start out the video game simply because of a "behavioral" challenge.

Penn State bent but didn't break on the Gophers' next possession, as it held them to a 26-yard field goal.

Penn State went the other way for a touchdown pass from Clifford to backup tight end Nick Bowers, but Bateman broke open again for a 36-yard gain on the next drive to set up a scoring plunge by Seth Green.

It's 7-0 midway through the first quarter.

This is the most-anticipated game at Minnesota since October 10, 2003, when the 17th-ranked Gophers lost 38-35 at the Metrodome to 20th-ranked MI. A sure first down and a counter to Minnesota's building momentum, George's drop proved to be a costly incompletion for the Nittany Lions.
