How did we do? Week 12 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 13, it’s time to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 12 predictions. It was a perfect showing for BTN.com fans, which means they jump Dienhart and move into sole possession of first place. Dienhart and I both went 5-1, as we incorrectly picked Michigan State to beat Northwestern. SEASON RECORDS BTN.com fans: 69-21; .767 Tom: 68-22; .755 Brent: 64-26; .711 Penn State 45, Indiana 22 Tom’s pick: Penn State, 44-21 – Expect another big game from Nittany Lions running back Zach Zwinak, which will fuel play-action

McGloin, Robinson lead Penn State past Indiana

Receiver Allen Robinson had three highlight-reel scoring catches and Matt McGlointhrew for four touchdowns to lead Penn State in a 45-22 win Saturday over Indiana. Zack Zwinak added 135 rushing yards, but the Nittany Lions (7-4, 5-2 Big Ten) did most of their damage through the air against the porous Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5). Indiana did turn two turnovers into 10 points, including a 46-yarder from Mitch Ewald to get within 28-22 in the third quarter.

3rd quarter recap: Penn State 42, Indiana 22

Stephen Houston had a productive quarter for Indiana. He caught two passes for 90 yards and one touchdown, but the Hoosiers still trail 42-22. Penn State got things going through the air in the quarter, passing for 144 yards. The Nittany Lions have scored the last 14 points. Indiana closed the gap to 28-19 when Cameron Coffman and Houston hooked up for a 79-yard touchdown to put a bow on a 79-yard drive. Watch BTN color analyst Chris Martin beg for Houston to get involved seconds before touchdown. An 18-yard drive that ended when Mitch Ewald kicked a 46-yard field

2nd quarter recap: Penn State 28, Indiana 13

Penn State’s offense looked sharp in the second quarter, scoring 21 points, and the Nittany Lions now lead 28-13. Penn State executed a balanced offensive attack in the quarter, finishing with 138 yards passing and 75 yards rushing. Four big plays, including Matt McGloin’s 53-yard pass, sparked the Nittany Lions in the quarter. Cameron Coffman’s two-yard touchdown pass to Ted Bolser gave the Hoosiers the lead, 10-7, and was the final play of a six-play, 27-yard drive. Antonio Marshall’s interception of a McGloin pass set Indiana up to start the drive. The Hoosiers only looked to the running game for

Did You See This? Penn State fans cheer Mauti

This is not the way Penn State’s Michael Mauti wanted to leave Beaver Stadium, perhaps, for the final time in his career. Already having suffered a pair of knee surgeries, Mauti left Saturday’s game on a cart after injuring his left knee. Mauti is a fan favorite, both for his incredible play and leadership, so it’s no surprise the Penn State faithful gave him a standing ovation and chanted his name as he left the field. Watch the ovation now and see the injury in this post. BTN sideline reporter J Leman said there is no update on Mauti and
