LIVE: Penn State Owns Halftime Edge

Northwestern's defense has struggled thus far, but the offense has kept up. At the break, Penn State owns a 27-24 lead over the Wildcats.

It's been a back-and-forth game so far, as Penn State leads Northwester 27-24 at the half.

The Wildcats jumped on the board early, capitalizing on a Penn State fumble on the opening kickoff. However, the Nittany Lions bounced back, exposing Northwestern's suspect defense on the ground and through the air.

The Northwestern offense, however, has been rolling all night long, thanks to solid play in the running and passing games from quarterbacks Dan Persa and Kain Colter.

The NU defense will have to step up in the second half, as it allowed the PSU defense to easily march down the field with less than a minute left in the half for a go-ahead touchdown.
