FOS TV: Zordich TD & Interview

Check out a sideline view of the senior fullbacks' two late-game runs that broke Northwestern's back at the Nittany Lions rolled to a 39-28 victory.

Penn State fullback Michael Zordich lowered the boom on Northwestern late in a game at Beaver Stadium Saturday.

With the Nittany Lions leading 32-28 and time winding down, Zordich barreled 25 yards to the Wildcat 3-yard line. On the next snap, PSU coach Bill O’Brien called the senior’s number again.

This time Zordich found a huge hole on the left side, muscled his way inside the 1-yard line and plunged for the goal. The touchdown and extra point put the Penn State up 39-28 with a minute and a half left.

As fate would have it, we happened to be standing in a spot where we had a perfect view of Zordich’s runs. And as fate would have it, we happened to be recording the action — the only two plays we shot from field level all game.
