Today also saw Marcus Allen leave the game with an arm injury, leaving Penn State without either of its starting safeties (Jordan Lucas did not dress-reasons unknown).
The star of the game, without a doubt, was Anthony Zettel. Zettel had 7 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, a fumble recovery, and a pass breakup... And he did it all less than 24 hours after the passing of his father. Anthony drew a lot of inspiration from his father, who battled back from a broken neck which had initially left him completely paralyzed only to be diagnosed with stage four cancer not long after learning to walk again. It's a tragic story, and the entire family came to State College to support Anthony after Terry's passing.
Penn State: Anthony Zettel (DT): 7 tackles, 2.5 TFL, 1 fumble recovery, 1 pass breakup
Christian Hackenberg (QB): 296 yards passing, 3 TDs
SDSU: Rashaad Penny (RB): Kickoff return for TD, 55 yard rush/attempt average (n=1)
Jake Fely (LB): 10 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, probably a shampoo commercial in his future
