Bortles throws 3 TDs, UCF tops Penn State 34-31
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Blake Bortles passed for 288 and three touchdowns and UCF stunned Penn State 34-31 on Saturday
Storm Johnson ran for a career-high 117 yards and a score and added a touchdown reception as the Knights (3-0) beat a Big
Ten team for the first time in school history. UCF never trailed, having its way against Penn State's defense to give the
newly minted American Athletic Conference a shot of respectability.
Zach Zwinak rushed for 128 yards and three touchdowns for the Nittany Lions (2-1) but also fumbled inside UCF territory with
less than 6 minutes remaining, blunting a late Penn State rally.
Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg completed 21 of 28 passes for 262 yards and a touchdown but the Nittany Lions
couldn't quite catch the faster, sleeker Knights after spotting UCF an 18-point lead.
