Penn State vs. Indiana State: Defense Gets A Stop, Joe Suhey Leads Offense To First Touchdown

Following the opening score by Chaz Powell, the Penn State defense forced a quick three-and-out to get the ball back for the Penn State offense.

Rob Bolden was, in fact, the man behind center for the first snap of the season. Silas Redd started at tailback, and perhaps most importantly, Joe Suhey started at fullback. Suhey got the ball twice on the opening drive and ran for 18-yards. He also had a catch for five as Penn State marched right down the field on Sycamores before Silas Redd capped off the drive with a 9-yard touchdown run to give the Nittany Lions a 14-0 lead very early here at Beaver Stadium.

The offense ran the ball very effectively on the first drive. Granted, the opponent is Indiana State, but everyone looked decisive and confident down there, something we've rarely seen from this team in the ground game the past couple of years, especially early on.
