WR Derek Moye had his first two carries of the season on the day logging 38 yards
on two carries, including a 27-yard reverse.

a Penn State quarterback passed for at least 300 yards was Daryll Clark (310 yards)

career games in which he has attempted a pass. He has thrown for 200 yards or
more in three of those games.
