Penn State, Michigan State Are On Pace For A Seven-Hour Game

Penn State head coach James Franklin gathers the team during practice on Oct. 18

Why not one more time?

The Michigan State Spartans defeated the Penn State Nittany Lions, 27-24, on Saturday afternoon from East Lansing, giving them their second high-profile win of the season.

It was Michigan State's second win against a No. 7 opponent after beating Michigan 14-10 in Ann Arbor on October 7.

Michigan State sophomore quarterback Brian Lewerke established himself as a modern-day mailman during a career day. That pushed the Spartans into field goal range and they didn't waste the opportunity. The first-year starter threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns despite the unfriendly conditions. The Spartans' other score, meanwhile, came on a touchdown pass to Darrell Stewart. LJ Scott led Michigan State in rushing with 14 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown. Penn State's forecast remains gloomy. Yards have to be earned against them and they don't give up a lot of points.

For the third time this season, the Gophers have had a game delayed by lightning. Penn State had a 14-7 lead.

Salah scores twice as Liverpool thrash sorry West Ham
The Hammers board have finally lost patience with the Croat, and he faces the chop during the upcoming worldwide break. Meanwhile, West Ham remain a point above the relegation zone after their winless run was extended to four games.

Thanks to heavy rain and some sparse lightning strikes, the earliest the Nittany Lions will be back on the field is 5:30 p.m., according to officials at Michigan State.

The game - which was halted for three hours and 23 minutes in the middle of the second quarter because of lightening - game down to the final possession.

The Spartans tied the game up at 14 before halftime and took a 17-14 lead midway through the third. Three plays later, Matt Coghlin hit the game-winning 34-yard field goal as time expired.

The Lions still rank second in the Big Ten in points allowed per game while the Spartans are first in the conference against the rush. But, the Nittany Lions couldn't help themselves.
