Penn State vs Michigan State live

The Nittany Lions (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) saw their national title hopes take a serious hit last Saturday, as the Buckeyes rallied behind J.T. Barrett for a 39-38 victory. At the same time, the Spartans (6-2, 4-2) dropped their second game of the season in triple-overtime to Northwestern on the road.

Both teams are ranked in the initial College Football Playoff poll, with Penn State coming in at No. 7 and Michigan State at No. 24. The Nittany Lions remain a contender to reach both the Big Ten title game and CFP semifinals, but they will need to be perfect the rest of the way and get some help from the rest of the conference as they are behind Ohio State.

James Franklin and PSU will need to avoid any lingering hangover from the loss to the Buckeyes. They jumped out quickly, as Heisman candidate Saquon Barkley returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. Barkley, though, was held to a season-low 44 yards, averaging just 2.1 yards per carry – also a low mark for the year.

Trace McSorley threw for just 192 yards, as Penn State ran for only 91 in the defeat.

Michigan State was unable to ride the arm of Brian Lewerke, as Northwestern scored a 39-31 victory. Lewerke was 39 of 57 passing for 445 yards and four touchdowns, but threw an ill-advised pass in the third extra session that was intercepted by the Wildcat defense in the end zone, ending the contest.
