Belton's play was the longest rushing score by a Penn State player in school history. The touchdown equaled the longest offensive touchdown in program history.
Belton finished the day with a season-high 137 yards on 16 carries in Bloomington. The New Jersey native now has four 100-yard rushing games in school history.
"The line did a great job up front giving me a seam to get through," Belton said. "I was able to get through basically untouched...Don't get caught from behind was the only thing that was going through my mind. I was able to get to the end zone, and I'm thankful for the opportunity to score."
Belton's score was the fourth Penn State offensive play of 90 yards or more. The three longest offensive plays in school history are all 92 yards (two runs and one pass). Here is a look at the 10 longest plays in Penn State's offensive history (8 runs and 2 passes).

Penn State opponents have accounted for 267.6 yards of total offense against the Lions this season. The Lions are ranked sixth nationally in scoring defense (16.6 ppg).
