Penn State's James Franklin trashes Pittsburgh after win

Penn State vs Pittsburgh live stream, I really don't want individuals to take what I'm saying the wrong way.

On a handsome day inside of Beaver Stadium in front of almost 110,000 white-clad fans the Penn State Nittany Lions made up for last year's crushing loss to in-state rival Pitt.

"I wouldn't say it's a rivalry, to be honest", Allen said. I took that to heart. "I think the emotions of everything today just kind of got the best of me".

Penn State's offense made sure of it.

"Our offense is very explosive and that's kind of how we were again today", Franklin said. McSorley found a wide-open Gesicki for an 8-yard touchdown just 2:07 into the game after Browne's first interception. He marched the offense down the field last season at will and looked nearly unstoppable in this year's season opener.

Pitt junior right guard Alex Bookser returned to the starting lineup after a one-game suspension for a DUI arrest in the offseason. While Penn State didn't splash Beaver Stadium with big chunks, the Lions were efficient and productive enough to put Pitt away early.

"It gives offensive linemen that little bit of fire every playing, knowing, hey, if I strain for two more steps here, one more second, we can give Saquon that little bit he needs to make that play, and that's something special about him, and that's the whole offense", tackle Andrew Nelson said. "Last year walking out of that stadium, the fans, all the type of stuff they said when we walked off".

Then Barkley ran for 17 and 11 yards on the first two snaps of the third quarter, and the Nittany Lions' workhorse got his hands on the ball with much greater frequency the rest of the way.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Penn State is the clear favorite in this game, as the Nittany Lions are getting odds of -21.5 points against the Panthers.

"I know previous year for their win it was like the Super Bowl, but for us this was just like beating Akron", Franklin said.

This season, Penn State is determined to let nothing stand in the way of their postseason dreams.

Sprinting past Pitt linebackers at midfield, Barkley hauled in a pass over the middle and outraced defenders for a 46-yard touchdown for a 21-3 lead in the early in the third.

Barkley finished with 133 yards from scrimmage on 18 touches against the Panthers. Pitt wound up settling for Kessman's second field goal.

"I think emotions were high", McSorley said. We put 14 points on the board and that's not a awful half, but for us, we felt like we weren't playing our best football.

"You're not going to beat a Top 10 team in the country turning the ball over", Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said. "And you're going to be hearing it a lot more".

While Pitt slogged, Penn State sprinted.
