Dani Dennis-Sutton comments on stepping up for injured Chop Robinson, late strip sack
Dani Dennis-Sutton provided what was probably the defensive play of the game for Penn State against Indiana Saturday afternoon.
The Hoosiers gave the Nittany Lions a larger fight than any team no named Ohio State so far this season. The game was tied at 24-all in the late stages of the 4th quarter.
But Drew Allar made up for a late interception, connecting with KeAndre Lambert-Smith for a 57-yard score. Moments later, Dennis-Sutton forced a fumble from Indiana’s Brendan Sorsby, which bounced around a few hands before rolling out the back of the end zone. Safety!

Following the game, Dennis-Sutton told reporters that with Chop Robinson out for an indefinite period of time, he felt he needed to step up. He did that and then some, totaling 6 tackles with 1 sack.
He finished by saying “I think my brother is proud of me.”
