Penn State Nittany Lions 33, Minnesota Golden Gophers 21 - McKnight Triples His Pleasure

Well, it’s garbage time, which must mean that it’s time for the Golden Gophers to rack up some late yards and points to make things look not as bad as they actually were.

The Gophers held Penn State on their possession after the safety, and got things going in the right direction on the first play of the ensuing drive with a screen pass to Duane Bennett that Bennett turned into a 45-yard gain into Penn State territory.

Minnesota continued to move the ball forward, and on a fourth down and six from the Penn State 16-yard line, Weber found Da’Jon McKnight for his third touchdown reception of the afternoon to make the score 33-21 in favor of Penn State.

The Gophers have just failed on an onside kick with five minutes left, so the Nittany Lions will take over with great field position and a 12-point lead.
