Pat Freiermuth sets new Penn State record in 2020 season opener
Penn State’s first touchdown drive of the season was one for the books.
After three consecutive plays with the same look, Nittany Lion Quarterback Sean Clifford faked a handoff to Devyn Ford, and connected with a wide-open Pat Freirmuth for a 2-yard touchdown and an early 7-0 led over Indiana.
The stat line will read that the opening drive went 13 plays and 64 yards, including 10 running plays and ate up 7:01 of game time. But what will be remembered is the catch in the endzone was the 16th of Freirmuth’s career at Penn State, and represents a new school record for touchdowns by a tight end.
Freirmuth entered the season, just his junior campaign, tied with Mike Gesicki with 15 career scoring receptions.
Pat Freiermuth has ARRIVED💪
