We are about to play the third game of the 2016 season and things look like they are on the upswing for the team as we sit at 2-0. After a rather shaky opener, a 28-7 win against Villanova at Heinz Field, we hosted our long-time rival Penn State in the first meeting between the two teams in 16 years.
We won that game in a match that had two distinct halves. In each of the first two quarters of play we out scored PSU 14-7 for a 28-14 halftime lead. At that point, and the way we were controlling the game with our running strength (with a TOP of 18:41), you would have thought the 2nd half would be a cakewalk for us.
