Michigan State Field Goal Beats Penn State After Three-Hour-Plus Weather Delay

November 4, 2017

In a game that included a weather delay of over three hours on Saturday afternoon, Michigan State’s Matt Coghlin booted a game-winning 34-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Spartans (7-2; 5-1 Big Ten) a 27-24 victory over visiting Penn State (7-2; 4-2 Big Ten).

The Nittany Lions had taken a 24-21 lead on the final play of the third quarter on a 70-yard touchdown pass play with Trace McSorley throwing to DeAndre Thompkins.  Coghlin’s 32-yard kick with 10:56 remaining tied the contest.

McSorley also threw TD passes to DaeSean Hamilton and to Saeed Blacknall.  Penn State’s Tyler Davis added a 26-yard field goal.

The other Michigan State score came on touchdown passes from Brian Lewerke to  Darrell Stewart, Jr. and to Felton Davis III, and a run by L.J. Scott.

The game started at 12:05 PM (EDT), and ended shortly after 7:00 PM.

McSorley completed 26-of-47 passes for 381 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.  Hamilton caught seven passes for 112 yards, and Thompkins made four receptions for 102 yards.  Saquon Barkley carried the ball 14 times for 63 yards.

For the Spartans, Lewerke was 33-for-56 for an even 400 yards with two scores and one pick, completing twelve of the passes for 181 yards to Davis.  Scott rushed for 43 yards on 14 carries.

Next Saturday at noon the Nittany Lions will host Rutgers.  Radio pregame airtime on 96.3 KQW will be 10:30 AM (EST).
