Penn State rolls to 34-9 victory over Purdue

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Matt McGloin passed for 321 yards
and two touchdowns to help Penn State defeat Purdue 34-9 on

Brandon Moseby-Felder had six catches for 129 yards, Zach Zwinak
ran for 134 yards and Michael Zordich ran for two touchdowns
for the Nittany Lions (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten), who bounced back from
a loss to Ohio State.

Caleb TerBush passed for 155 yards and a touchdown and Antavian
Edison had nine catches for 93 yards and a score for the
Boilermakers (3-6, 0-5), who have lost five straight and now
will need to win out to become bowl eligible.

The pressure was on Purdue coach Danny Hope after athletic
director Morgan Burke released a statement earlier in the week
saying that the team's performance had kept the Boilermakers
from reaching their goals, and that those associated with the
program had expected the team to take a step up the postseason

Akeem Hunt's 47-yard return of the opening kickoff and Akeem
Shavers' 37-yard run set up a 21-yard field goal by Sam
McCartney that gave the Boilermakers a 3-0 lead. It was the
first time Penn State had been scored upon in the first quarter
all season.

Penn State went for it on fourth-and-1 from the 50 on its
opening possession, but McGloin's pass fell incomplete. Purdue
couldn't take advantage, as Shavers fumbled and Penn State's
Malcolm Willis recovered.

Penn State drove down the field, and Sam Ficken kicked a 27-yard
field goal to even the score with 6:03 left in the first

On Penn State's next possession, McGloin found Moseby-Felder for
42 yards, then Zordich scored on a 6-yard run for a 10-3 lead.

Robert Marve completed an 8-yard pass to Edison on a
fourth-and-1 from the Penn State 41 to extend a second-quarter
drive, but Paul Griggs' 45-yard field goal was wide right.

Penn State responded by extending its lead. Allen Robinson's
leaping 27-yard grab over Purdue's Josh Johnson moved the ball
into field-goal range, and Ficken's 24-yard chip shot pushed the
Nittany Lions' lead to 13-3 with 3:47 left in the first half.

Zordich pounded the ball in from 5 yards out to increase Penn
State's lead to 20-3 with 1:16 left in the first half.

Penn State went right down the field on its opening possession
of the second half and McGloin found Jesse James for a 12-yard
touchdown pass. On Penn State's next possession, Moseby-Felder's
41-yard touchdown catch from McGloin made it 34-3 and sent
Purdue's fans scurrying toward the exits.

TerBush completed a 2-yard touchdown pass to Edison on the last
play of the game.
