PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Our report card from Penn State's 13-10 win over Rutgers here Saturday night.
OVERALL: Winning ugly is still winning.
OFFENSE: This unit was just plain bad most of the night. The key word there is most.
DEFENSE: We wondered how good this unit could be when it started forcing turnovers. Now we know.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Allowing two blocks is not acceptable.
COACHING: Some head-scratching stuff on offense. But what a job by the defensive staff.
INTANGIBLES: So much of this hinges on a quarterback who never thinks he is out of a game.
OTHER GUY: Some flashes of good stuff, especially on defense. But RU was a train wreck down the stretch.
OFFICIALS: Welcome to the world of Dave Witvoet, Scarlet Knight fans.
CROWD: Nice turnout by the RU fans.
