Marcus Allen On Penn State's Big Defensive Plays

The Nittany Lion junior came through with a clutch play in Saturday's season-opening win over Kent State. But he was even more excited to see what some of his less experienced teammates did.

Penn State junior S Marcus Allen had an amazing play in the Nittany Lions' 33-13 win over Kent State Saturday.

In the second quarter, he crushed opposing receiver Myles Washington, causing a fumble. Then, even though his momentum took him several yards away from the initial hit, Allen got up, spotted the loose pigskin, picked it up in traffic and took off for a six-yard return.

As big as that was, though, Allen said he was even more thrilled to see redshirt sophomore CB Amani Oruwariye come through with a pick six in the third quarter and redshirt freshman DE Shareef Miller register a sack and a half.

"I feel more excited about what my brothers do than what I accomplish,” Allen said after the game.
