Penn State leads Indiana at half, 28-13

Matthew McGloin threw for four touchdown passes in the first half, as the Penn State Nittany Lions lead the Indiana Hoosiers at halftime, 28-13.

McGloin went 12-of-18 passing for 218 yards in that same time, with four touchdowns and an interception. Three of McGloin's touchdown passes were hauled in by Allen Robinson, who has six catches for 103 yards and three touchdowns in the first half of play for the Nittany Lions.

Zach Zwinak rushed the ball effectively in the first half, garnering 90 yards on 15 carries. As a whole, the Nittany Lions have rushed for 106 yards on 21 carries so far.

Zwinak also caught a 16-yard touchdown pass from McGloin, with just 31 seconds left in the second quarter.

By contrast, Indiana has just 22 rushing yards on 11 carries.

Indiana quarterback Cameron Coffman finished the first half 20-of-36 passing for 210 yards, with both a touchdown and interception. Hoosiers' wide receiver Shane Wynn was Coffman's primary target in the first half, hauling in nine receptions for 98 yards.

Aside from a McGloin interception, Penn State has played nearly perfect, with no penalties committed. The Nittany Lions have outgained the Hoosiers in total yards, 323-231, and are well on their way to their seventh win of the season.
