Penn State 39, No. 24 Northwestern 28
After beginning the season 0-2, Penn State has now won four straight games. Despite trailing for most of the second half, the Nittany Lions rallied past Northwestern, fueled by a gritty 35-of-51, 282-yard, two-touchdown passing performance from Matt McGloin. Zach Zwinak ran for 121 yards and a score, and Allen Robinson made nine grabs for 85 yards and two touchdowns. The Wildcats' Venric Mark scored twice in a losing effort, on a two-yard carry and a 75-yard punt return.
