Purdue at Penn State - Football Highlights

(AP) Silas Redd ran for 131 yards and a touchdown and Penn State took advantage of Purdue’s special teams miscues to hold on Saturday for a 23-18 win. Akeem Shavers had a 1-yard touchdown run with 8:08 left but Purdue was stopped on a 2-point conversion attempt to keep the deficit at 20-18. A missed field goal and extra-point attempt earlier in the game also haunted Purdue (3-3, 1-1 Big Ten) on a windy afternoon. Nate Stupar’s interception of a tipped pass at the Purdue 19 with 1:59 left finally sealed the game for Penn State. Read the full AP recap, see the box score and check out the Big Ten scoreboard.
