Michigan State-Penn State game delayed by lightning

Penn State was ahead 14-7 in the second quarter when the game was halted for a lengthy weather delay. The Nittany Lions still harbor playoff hopes, and this is probably their toughest remaining game in the regular season.

Barkley rushed for zero yards on six attempts in the first half, and for maybe the first time all season was held at bay on kick returns and in the passing attack. With a victory, Penn State would have tied the Buckeyes in the Big Ten East standings, and the Nittany Lions likely would have hopped them in the CFP polls. The Spartans took over and then mounted the game-winning drive. His teams have lost all 10 of them.

Dowell came up with his second interception of the game and third overall for the Spartans, but Penn State responded by picking off Lewerke for the first time.

Meanwhile, don't look now but the Spartans, who were all but written off as an also-ran in a crowded division coming into the season are now 7-2 with only one loss in conference play. Michigan State's Brian Lewerke set school records for completions (39) and yards passing (445) last weekend. Laying waste to Pitt, pulling one out in Iowa, and clobbering MI in front of almost 111,000 fans - this team just seemed to have "it". Felton Davis posted career highs with 12 receptions for 181 yards to go with one touchdown and Darrell Stewart Jr. had five catches for 65 yards and a score. He's thrown for 16 touchdowns and run for 8 more.

Lewerke faked two hand-offs before setting his feet and firing to the front corner of the end zone at Spartan Stadium. Penn State is plus-14 in turnover margin, by far the best mark in the Big Ten.

Saturday's marked the second weather-delayed game of the season for Michigan State, following their 30-27 win at Minnesota on October 14, in which the start was bumped back. Despite a shaky offensive line or a defense filled with former three-star recruits, Penn State was marching its way through the 2017 season, and the next stop was the National Championship.
