UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State football (2-0, 0-0) was able to flex its muscles this afternoon, after defeating the Delaware Blue Hens (1-1, 0-0) 63-7 inside Beaver Stadium Saturday afternoon. In a game where Penn State physically imposed themselves on their opponent, Drew Allar continued to look fantastic. The Nittany Lions also establish the run game early and often.

We will have plenty of detailed analysis and commentary of this win on Basic Blues Nation in the days to come. But for now, here is a “3 & out” of quick reactions from tonight’s game as you wrap up your evening.

Nick Singleton & Kaytron Allen dominate the Blue Hens

It was clear from the first series that Penn State wanted to physically impose itself on the Delaware Blue Hens. In the first half alone the team rushed for 147 yards. That was produced by Kaytron Allen who had 14 carries for 69 yards and one touchdown. Nick Singleton had 11 carries for 52 yards and three touchdowns. Drew Allar also added 26 yards rushing in the first half. The Nittany Lions took a 35-7 lead headed into halftime.

Allen finished the day as the team’s leading rusher with 103 rushing yards on 19 carries. He also went over the 1,000-yard career rushing mark in the 3rd quarter today.

Then, after Penn State marched down the field to score another touchdown, QB Beau Pribula stepped into the game to add more rushing yards. He finished the day with 8 carries for 46 yards. He also passed for 22 yards and one touchdown.

Drew Allar impresses & TE’s get involved

In a week where Drew Allar didn’t have to do too much he executed perfectly. Allar went out and had a very efficient day. He finished 22 of 26 passing for 204 yards and one touchdown pass. His decision-making continued to be near perfect. Drew Allar also made several checks at the line of scrimage that led to rushing touchdowns. He is in full control and his confidence continues to grow.

The tight ends also made their presence known this afternoon. As Allar’s first completion of the game went to Theo Johnson. It was Tyler Warren who led the way with 6 catches for 37 yards and one touchdown catch. While Theo Johnson secured 2 catches for 14 yards. They both made key blocks that guided Allen and Singleton into the endzone.

The defense bounced back after one mistake

With a little over one minute remaining in the first quarter, the Penn State defense allowed a 66-yard rushing touchdown to Delaware’s Marcus Yarns. But after that lone mistake, the defense cleaned up their act and played very well.

The defense had 4 sacks and caused two turnovers, including a pick-six in the 3rd quarter by Penn State LB Dominic DeLuca.

While there were concerns surrounding the interior of the defensive line, the team made an adjustment and was able to keep the Blue Hens in check for the rest of the game.
