Mc­sor­ley matches mark as Li­ons top Wis­con­sin

The Citizens' Voice - - SPORTS - BY TRAVIS JOHN­SON

STATE COL­LEGE — Trace Mc­sor­ley and Penn State went back to a fa­mil­iar for­mula Satur­day — a steady diet of elu­sive Miles San­ders.

The resur­gent run­ning game put the Nit­tany Li­ons of­fense back on track, and got Mc­sor­ley a mile­stone vic­tory, too.

San­ders ran for 159 yards and a touch­down on 23 car­ries, Mc­sor­ley matched Todd Black­ledge’s pro­gram record with his 29th win at quar­ter­back and No. 21 Penn State beat Wis­con­sin 22-10.

If San­ders had been ir­ri­tated that his rush­ing to­tals had fallen off along with the Nit­tany Li­ons’ of­fen­sive out­put lately, he didn’t show it. He con­sid­ers him­self a pa­tient tail­back, and he chan­neled some pent-up en­ergy into run­ning over the Badgers.

Penn State (7-3, 4-3 Big Ten, No. 20 CFP) racked up 200plus rush­ing yards in each of the first six games but had av­er­aged just 120 over the last three.
