Postgame Link Dump: Rutgers

There was a game in Piscataway. Penn State won it. The fans, meanwhile? Well, that’s up for debate.

For a fairly dull game, it’s pretty incredible how many takeaways came from Penn State’s 20-7 victory over Rutgers.

The Nittany Lions defense was dominant throughout and young players continue to impress from front to back.

The offense, however, continues to mimic one which Penn State fans may remember from the early 2000s.

Not great!

Here’s what the rest of the PSU beat had to say about the contest:

Giana Han of the Reading Eagle discusses the performance of freshman Micah Parsons in his first career start.

Our own Tim Aydin gives his position grades for the game, including a surprisingly strong statement of praise for a much-maligned Nittany Lions senior.

Trace McSorley is launching an assault on the Penn State record book. But don’t tell him that. The senior is solely focused on what’s to come in his career as a Nittany Lion.

The aforementioned Parsons may or not be a hit man. Here’s what the talented linebacker had to say about his improvement over the course of the year.

Yesterday’s game wasn’t the best, but Chris Taylor explains why it’s not all bad for Nittany Lions at the moment.

That being said, things could’ve been far worse yesterday had Rutgers not done a Rutgers at the most inopportune time possible.

This team is going to get into a New Year’s Six bowl with a win next week and I can’t stop laughing at the idea of that.
