Penn State vs. Purdue: Anthony Fera Kicks Another Field Goal, Lions Lead 23-18

That was going to be my last update, but cornerback Chaz Powell had other ideas. He takes the kickoff following Purdue's touchdown back 93 yards to set the Penn State offense up deep inside Boilermaker territory.

A 15-yard penalty sets the Nittany Lions back a bit, back at the 18 yard line, and they go three-and-out from there after a couple of runs from Silas Redd and an incompletion from quarterback Matthew McGloin.

Anthony Fera comes on for this third field goal attempt of the game, and drills a 29-yard kick to make the score Penn State 23 Purdue 18 with 6:24 left to play here at Beaver Stadium.

Penn State scoring summary: four plays, six yards, 1:28 time of possession.

That's a big answer from the Lions there, but that penalty could be damaging. Penn State almost surely would have had a touchdown without it, but now they hold a tenuous five-point lead as we come down to the wire.

Charlie has it from here, folks.
