Offensive player of the game: McSorley completed 16-of-21 for 214 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Rutgers followed every Big Ten defense in aligning itself squarely at Saquon Barkley, holding the back to minus-3 yards on 5 first-half carries. 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.

Barkley took a hook and lateral play 14 yards to set up his 1-yard score, leaping over a defender in the process.

Best hit: Penn State linebacker Jason Cabinda stuffed tight end Jerome Washington for a 2-yard loss on a fake punt in the third quarter.
The Blue Devils played without coach Donyell Marshall and assistant Anthony Anderson, both of whom were suspended for the first two games in what school officials called a "personal matter".
