RECAP

Frank Sunderman passed for two TDs, one for 25 yards to Tom Cabalka, and the second to Levi Mitchell for 41 yards, but the defense could not hold off a more powerful Lion rushing attack that wore down the Hawks. Led by running backs Lydell Mitchell and Franco Harris, they rushed for 459 yards on the day. Mitchell rushed for 211 yards in the game, and Harris scored 4 short TDs. After a scoreless first quarter, Penn State scored 23 points in the 2nd quarter to essentially put the game away.
