Penn State vs. Purdue: Caleb TerBush Throws A Touchdown, Boilermakers Close Gap To 13-12

Following the Penn State field goal, Purdue's Raheem Mostert takes the return back 71 yards to the Penn State 26-yardline. Stephon Morris, who held the ball on the kick because of the wind, made the touchdown-saving shove out-of-bounds along the sideline for the Nittany Lions.

The Boilermakers get a first down on a completion from Caleb TerBush to Justin Siler, and TerBush follows that up with a 14-yard touchdown pass to O.J. Ross. Purdue misses the extra point, however, and so Penn State will cling to the lead, now ahead 13-12 with 4:02 left in the third quarter.

Purdue scoring summary: 4 plays, 26 yards, 1:43 time of possession.

It's time for the offense to step up for Penn State. The defense is playing OK, but it's giving up some big plays. The defense has bailed the offense out all season long. If the Lions are going to move to 6-1 and 3-0 in the Big Ten, then the offense needs to do its share and make some things happen in the final 19 minutes and change.
