Penn State and Indiana are off and running in Beaver Stadium. In a game that heavily favored the Nittany Lions, there have been some wild early fireworks between the two sides.

In the middle of the first quarter, it was actually the Hoosiers that struck first. Brendan Sorsby connected with DeQuece Carter on a pass over the top of the defense, but that was just the start of things.

Carter put some nice moves on and hit the jets to get all the way down the sideline for a 90-yard touchdown.

On the ensuing drive, Penn State was forced into a quick punt after a 3-and-out. However, that punt was muffed by Indiana with the Nittany Lions quickly recovering deep in Hoosier territory.

Penn State would once again be forced into a 4th-down situation, but the Nittany Lions went for it. The play design worked beautifully with Khalil Dinkins finding himself wide open in the end zone for an easy pitch-and-catch from Drew Allar.

At the end of the first quarter, it is still all tied up at 7 points apiece. Penn State is starting to wake up a bit, but there is also some reason to be concerned for the sluggish start from the Nittany Lions.
