Penn State vs. Purdue: Nittany Lions Still Lead 20-12 After Three Quarters

Purdue continues to take it to the Penn State defense with big plays following Silas Redd's touchdown for the Nittany Lions. The Boilermakers' Ralph Bolden opened the drive with a 21-yard run, followed by a 20-yard completion from Caleb TerBush to Reggie Pegram.

We're seeing classic bend-but-don't-break defense from the Lions today. They're giving up yards -- and big plays -- but making the stops when they need to to hold the lead.

Just as I say that, the Lions' Nick Sukay picks off TerBush on third down, and Penn State is able to thwart another potential Purdue scoring drive. The play is reviewed, but the call is upheld by the referees, so Penn State will take over on its own 15-yardline.

A Silas Redd carry for five yards brings us to the end of the third quarter here at Beaver Stadium, with Penn State still leading Purdue by a score of 20-12. By the way, that carry took Redd over 100 yards for the day.
