Penn State's passing attack has looked sharp over the last 15 minutes of action, with 132 yards, and the Nittany Lions lead 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. Penn State took the game's first lead after Matt McGloin and Jesse James hooked up for a two-yard touchdown on the last play of a seven-play, 72-yard drive. The key play on the Nittany Lions' drive was McGloin's 45-yard pass to Allen Robinson.

Penn State expanded its lead to 14-0 thanks to a four-play, 57-yard drive that ended when McGloin found Robinson open for a 45-yard touchdown pass.

After just one quarter of play, the Nittany Lions' Robinson has already clinched a 100-yard receiving day, hauling in three catches for 103 yards.

Penn State has possession at its own 20-yard line to start the second quarter.
