A look at what the Twittersphere had to say about Penn State’s blowout victory over Kent State

NCAA Football: Kent State at Penn State Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday afternoon the Nittany Lions thrashed the Kent State Golden Flashes by a score of 63-10. The route of the Golden Flashes had Twitter a buzz. So, let’s dive into what the world of Twitter had to say.

The Nittany Lions got off to a quick start when Trace McSorley threw a touchdown pass to DeAndre Thompkins on the game’s opening drive. Thompkins’ touchdown catch was a fantastic grab in the end zone on which he was fully extended.

After struggling to start the season, Thompkins had a much needed big game. He led to team with 101 receiving yards and he averaged 20.7 yards per return. Hopefully, DAT has found his groove again.

Speaking of McSorley, his Heisman campaign remains in full force. He racked up 283 yards of total offense, he threw two touchdowns, and he rushed for a trio of scores. He also led a great drive in the final minute of the first half to quickly thwart any momentum Kent State may have developed entering the half.

Oh, Miles Sanders is really good you guys. He continued to turn heads on Saturday with 116 yards of total offense.

KJ Hamler keeps making fans, too.

For most of the game Penn State’s defensive line was swarming led by the defensive line. Slowly but surely Penn State’s defensive line is starting to look strong. Sahreef Miller, Shaka Toney, Yetur Gross-Matos, and Ellison Jordan were among the defensive linemen with big games on Saturday.

True freshman defensive end Jayson Oweh made his collegiate debut on Saturday afternoon. The former top-100 prospect was an absolute terror and recorded a pair of sacks. Oweh will be terrorizing Big Ten quarterbacks for a long time.

In the fourth quarter Sean Clifford continued the hot start to his Nittany Lion career by going 3/3 for 141 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown pass was a 95-yard connection with another true freshman making his collegiate debut - Daniel George. This was the longest passing play in program history.

Clifford is now 4/4 for 175 yards and two touchdowns in his career.

The Nittany Lions are now 3-0. It’s Illinois week.
