Despite struggles through the year, Penn State's Sean Clifford says he'll never doubt himself
To say that Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford has struggled this season would be a big understatement.
He only has a 57 percent completion percentage and an 11 touchdown to eight interception ratio. In three of the Nittany Lions six games, he has multiple interceptions. Despite that though, he’s never going to doubt himself, according to The Athletic’s Audrey Snyder:
Sean Clifford: "No. I have not and will never doubt myself."
"Because I know how hard I work and how hard this team works. … It's just that. I know the talent that we have and I don't care what anyone else has to say about it." pic.twitter.com/PRPzxxJzqh

Clifford was one of the reasons that the Nittany Lions got their first win today even though he didn’t have a passing touchdown.
It was his play on the ground that was big for Penn State as he had nine rushes for 73 yards and a touchdown. Through the air, Clifford went 17-for-28 with 163 yards passing.
We’ll see if Clifford can have a second strong game in a row when the Nittany Lions travel to Rutgers next Saturday. The time and television info are still yet to be determined.
