Penn State opened the scoring in the second half with the help of a fumble by Auburn receiver Kobe Hudson, who was looking to throw on a trick play on the first snap of the third quarter. The Nittany Lions recovered on the Tigers 20 and scored four plays later on Tyler Warren’s 2-yard run.
Noah Cain’s 4-yard touchdown put the Nittany Lions ahead 28-20 in the fourth quarter, setting the stage for a key defensive stand. Auburn drove to the Penn State 2, but NIx’s fourth-down pass to Hudson in the end zone was incomplete.
