Penn State added another signature victory to its early resume.

Saturday night, the Nittany Lions defeated Auburn 28-20 for their second Top 25 victory over the season. Penn State’s defense stood strong once again and Sean Clifford stepped up in a big way to lead the team to a victory.

Clifford’s night ended completing 28-of-32 for 280 yards with 2 touchdowns and just 1 interception. Jahan Dotson had a big night, totaling 78 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches, as well.

Auburn did enjoy some success on the ground, piling up 182 yards on 40 carries, good enough for a 4.6 yards per carry average. But, once again, the Nittany Lions didn’t break defensively and were able to improve to 3-0 on the year.
