Tyler Warren soars over goal line with TD on unique TE Wildcat setup
Penn State is picking up where it left off to end the first half, opening the third quarter with a takeaway and a touchdown to increase the lead.
A miscue by Auburn to begin the second half set the Nittany Lions up with great field position. After driving down to the two-yard line, Penn State dialed up a unique formation.
Taking a direct snap in the backfield was tight end Tyler Warren, serving as a quarterback in the Wildcat formation. Warren wasted no time, plunging ahead and up and over the line of scrimmage for the short touchdown.

Warren also has a catch for 22 yards on the evening.
One former Nittany Lion tight end, Pat Freiermuth, took notice of the formation and was a big fan. We’ll have to see if Penn State goes back to it in the future.
TE WILDCAT!!! LETS GO TYLER!
