With fifty seconds left in the third quarter, Penn State punted to Northwestern’s Venric Mark. With his team leading 21-17, Mark took the punt seventy-five yards to the house and put the Wildcats up 28-17.

3 Players to Watch:
1) Michael Mauti (LB PSU): He's going to be key in stopping the short throw for big gain play that Northwestern has nearly perfected this year. Whether it's spying on Colter who could be at QB, RB...
