I wasn't able to pay as much attention to the game as I would have liked to yesterday, so let's get to the links and hope they help sort out the drenched mess that was the situation at Beaver Stadium yesterday.
Ryan Keiser is most certainly on a roll. The safety made quite an impact on a defense reeling from last week's lackluster performance against Central Florida. Keiser had an interception and sack to go along with four tackles and three pass breakups in undoubtedly the best performance of his Penn State career. Because of that, ESPN's Nittany Nation blog, StateCollege.com and Victory Bell Rings all honored him with sort of of Player of the Game honors.
TWWL's Nittany Nation blog also had a multitude of other stories about yesterday's 34-0 victory over Kent State. Defensive players were deservedly proud of their defensive performance against the Flashes although they know they'll have to continue to improve when they go up against tougher offenses... Josh Moyer also gave us five things to take from yesterday's game, including the fact that Bill O'Brien's playcalling is still leaving some scratching their heads this season.
Over at my old stomping-grounds, Zach Berger of Onward State has a lot of takeaways from the offensive side of the ball, detailing how Christian Hackenberg, while great so far, still has some freshman growing pains to go through and why Akeel Lynch didn't break one run to the house because he essentially pants-ed himself.
The Daily Collegian is once again impressed with Penn State's red-zone scoring where they are still perfect on the year.
Sam Ficken hit a ridiculous 54-yard field goal considering the conditions yesterday, one yard from the Penn State all-time record. Greg Pickel at PennLive tells how Ficken is motivated after his performance against Virginia last year.
A multitude of stories from PennLive: Bob Flounders's report card.... Joe Hermitt's incredible pictures... Penn State came out of Kent State unharmed.... Deion Barnes is happy to finally be back in the sack column.
