Penn State kept rolling right along in Week 5!

After a scary wakeup call against Pittsburgh in Week 3, the Nittany Lions headed to College Park as about a touchdown favorite over the Terrapins. Fortunately, James Franklin and company did a little bit better than that.

The Nittany Lions absolutely steamrolled Mike Locksley’s Maryland squad on both sides of the ball in a 59-0 drubbing. That shutout pushed Penn State to 4-0 and sitting in a good spot heading into the heat of the season.
