Navy Vs. Penn State 2012: Final Score And Game Recap

The Penn State Nittany Lions won their first game of the Bill O'Brien era on Saturday afternoon, beating the Navy Midshipmen 34-7 at Beaver Stadium.

Matthew McGloin was excellent throughout the afternoon, completing 12-of-21 for 231 yards and four touchdowns. Perhaps just as impressive and important, the senior didn't toss an interception.

Sophomore Allen Robinson had another spectacular game. The standout wide receiver caught five passes for 136 yards and three touchdowns, easily having the best day of his Penn State career.

The Nittany Lions didn't have a ton of success on the ground, but Michael Zordich picked up 50 yards on 11 carries to lead the team.

The defense had a terrific day, despite allowing the Midshipmen to garner 371 yards of offense. However, they did score a touchdown of their own when Mike Hull recovered a fumble and rumbled 74 yards.

Navy couldn't get any kind of passing attack going, throwing for just 126 yards in the contest.
