Mcsorley matches mark as Lions top Wisconsin
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.
