McSorley sets all-time Penn State TD mark in win vs. Rutgers

Rutgers isn't back — but Chris Ash is leading his team closer Rutgers isn't back — but Chris Ash is leading his team closer

Penn State fans may recall seeing a QB sneak as recently as 2013.

Rutgers had a critical 17-2 run in the second half, and the Scarlet Knights outlasted pesky Central Connecticut State 71-67 on Sunday at Louis Brown Athletic Center in Piscataway, N.J.

A 35-6 win over Rutgers and chaos across the college football landscape helped vault Penn State to No. 13 in the latest Associated Press top-25 and to No. 11 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Giovanni Rescigno completed 7 of 20 passes for 43 yards for the Scarlet Knights. Barkley scored two plays later.

McSorley became Penn State's all-time touchdown leader with 68, overtaking Daryll Clark's record of 65 with one rushing and two passing scores. Best blocks: Penn State left tackle Will Fries and left guard Steven Gonzalez opened big holes on Barkley's touchdown runs of 1 and 4 yards in the fourth quarter.

WHO CAME THROUGH: Quarterback Trace McSorley took control of the offense on a four-play scoring drive in the second quarter, making assertive throws to Mike Gesicki and Hamilton, then running for 20 yards. The Lions held Rutgers without a first down in the third quarter.

Ryan Bates, who was hurt October 28 against Ohio State, missed his second game with an undisclosed injury.

After missing a bunch of tackles in the run game, Penn State finally got itself into a favorable position. Senior Brandon Smith started in his place and made 10 tackles.

Probably not on a day when the Scarlet Knights played so well in the first half but couldn't convert a pair of early red zone chances into touchdowns. They're built to pound the ball and Rescigno showed off some scrambling ability to give Rutgers its best shot. The game will be shown on Fox Sports 1 as Penn State plays its final home game of 2017.
