Sean Clifford had a special career at Penn State. And he went out a winner.

The 6th year senior QB dominated Monday evening in the Nittany Lions’ 35-21 Rose Bowl win over Utah. Clifford totaled an incredible 279 yards and 2 touchdowns on 16/21 completed passes.

Clifford was subbed out of the game with 2 minutes remaining for Drew Allar, allowing fans to give the star QB a standing ovation and an emotional sendoff.

Clifford has built something special at Penn State. He ends his career first in Penn State’s all-time marks for passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions, completion percentage and tied for most wins with Trace McSorley.

Penn State ends its season at 11-2, with losses only to CFP level talent in Michigan and Ohio State.

What a season for the Nittany Lions and what a career for Sean Clifford.
