STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- 1. Now this is football weather. Snowy, cold and windy. You gotta love it. Especially when you're in the warm confines of the press box.

Penn State-Michigan State first quarter update

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. --
1. Now this is football weather. Snowy, cold and windy. You gotta love it. Especially when you're in the warm confines of the press box.


2. Another three-and-out to open for Penn State's offense. That makes it ten games since the Lions scored on their opening drive. Daryll Clark tried to hit wide receiver Jordan Norwood on and out on third down, but Norwood was juggling the ball and ruled out of bounds.


3. After the Lions defense forced Michigan State to punt, Clark hit Norwood on first down for 49 yards. Derrick Williams was lined up in the backfield, but motioned out wide, giving Norwood a matchup against safety Danny Fortener. Clark connected with Norwood on the slant. Three plays later, Clark found Graham Zug for a 5-yard touchdown. It was extremely important that the Lions were the first to get on the board and they did so.
First quarter score: Penn State 7, Michigan State 0
