Penn State vs. Indiana: Nittany Lions Hold On For 16-10 Win

With the game hanging in the balance, Joe Paterno turns to Matthew McGloin following Indiana's touchdown with Penn State lead 16-10 inside of four minutes to play. He hasn't had a great day, but the Nittany Lions' offense has worked best with McGloin in there, so this isn't a big surprise.

Silas Redd gets the drive off to a good start with a huge run into Indiana territory. He hasn't had a whole lot of room to run today, but the run takes him over 100 yards on the afternoon.

After Redd's big run, though, the offense sputters on the ensuing series and is stopped short on a 3rd-and-1. Penn State punts inside Indiana territory and the Penn State defense will have to stop the Hoosiers to seal a win for the Lions.

Indiana opens the series with a first down up to its own 35-yardline. A holding penalty sets them back, though, and their forced to convert a 4th-and-2 up at midfield, which they do on a Dusty Kiel run to keep the drive going.

With the ball at midfield, Kiel misfires on a couple of passes to bring up a 3rd down. He completes his next play, but short of the mark and in the field of play. On fourth down, Kiel scrambles again and gets a first down inside Penn State territory with :02 to play.

On the final play of the game, Kiel airs it out to Demarlo Belcher, but Indiana can't come up with the catch. That's your ballgame. Penn State holds on, 16-10.
