DOINK! Penn State kicker's shank is still echoing off the walls at Memorial Stadium
Penn State’s first half vs. Indiana ended with a thud — and a remarkably loud doink off the upright.

With Penn State unable to take advantage of a free three points, the Hoosiers took a 17-7 lead into halftime.
Indiana hasn’t won a game in this series since 2013. Penn State holds a 22-1 all-time lead over Indiana.
