Brenton Strange made sure that Penn State’s first touchdown against Northwestern was a good one. Strange jumped over a Wildcats defender on his way for six.

James Franklin drew up a play action play to fool the defense, and it did just that. Sean Clifford found Strange with plenty of open space so that he could make a play.

Strange has been a surprise on offense this season. Clifford hit the Penn State TE for a 20-yard score for the games’s first touchdown.

The Nittany Lions are currently leading the Wildcats 7-0 with a few minutes left before halftime. Penn State’s offense has struggled in the first half in its last two wins. The same problems happened against Central Michigan, as Penn State went into halftime up 21-14 against the Chippewas.

Strange is second on the team against Northwestern in receiving yards after that touchdown grab.
