Penn State went into Champaign on Friday night and thoroughly dissected Illinois in a 63-24 victory.

It took the Nittany Lions a half to get going, but once they did there was no looking back.

Here’s what the media had to say about the performance:

PennLive’s Greg Pickel reviews how the Nittany Lions got the job done and what they can do to topple Ohio State on Saturday.

Over at 247Sports, you can watch the entirety of James Franklin’s postgame press conference.

Penn State scored 63 points in back-to-back games for the first time in a long time. How long? NBC Sports fills you in on the details of the historic showings.

John McGonigal of the Centre Daily Times takes you through the good, the bad and the ugly of an unsteady Penn State performance.
