Penn State Nittany Lions 21, Minnesota Golden Gophers 14 - Weber To McKnight Again

The Gophers put together one of their most impressive drives of the season to start the second half of today’s game, and the result has gotten them back to within a touchdown of the Nittany Lions.

The Gophers took the opening kickoff of the second half, and started out at their own 25-yard line. DeLeon Eskridge looked especially impressive on the drive, as he got things started with an 18-yard run around the left end, and contributed a total of 42 rushing yards on the drive.

On third and 2 from the Penn State 4, Adam Weber dropped back to pass and hit Da’Jon McKnight on a little fade route in the right side of the end zone to make the score 21-14. It was McKnight’s second touchdown catch of the day, and his eighth of the season.
