The Penn State vs. Pitt Rivalry is one of the most historic in college football, dating back to 1893. It was revived in 2016 after a 16-year hiatus, and Penn State has now won the last two matchups after a 51-6 dismantling at Heinz Field on Saturday.

Penn State running back Miles Sanders spoke to the media after the game, and commended Penn State fans for how they “took over the stadium” for the Nittany Lions’ win.

“It was awesome, we took over the stadium,” said Sanders, “we knew we came into a tough environment, we just wanted to take over the stadium and get out with a win.

“All I heard was ‘we are’ at the end.”

Sanders had a career day in the win, running for 118 yards on only 16 carries. He was asked what the locker room environment was like after the rivalry win, and responded with a big grin on his face.

“It’s a party in there,” he said, “y’all should come.”

Penn State improves to 2-0 in 2018, and now leads the series over Pitt, 52-43-4. James Franklin’s team returns to State College to play in front of the same fans that took over Heinz Field to play Kent State next Saturday.
