OFFENSE: Good news for the Lions: Passing game clicking heading into the Big Ten portion of the schedule.
DEFENSE: Stiffened even when offense and special teams gave CMU great field position. Also unveiled an intense pass rush just in time for the conference campaign.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Fumbled punt return by Calvin Lowry, bad snap on PAT and Kevin Kelly's missed field goal could have hurt in a tight game.
COACHING: Aggressive play on offense and defense made a huge difference in this one.
INTANGIBLES: Chippewas seemed intimidated when the Lions turned up the heat.
OTHER GUYS: CMU had its hands full. But props to Kent Smith for being one tough sum-a-gun.
OFFICIALS: Zebras seemed to be on the money all afternoon.
CROWD: We don't believe the number: 100,276.
The Ultimate PSU Package for the Ultimate PSU Fan: Under $100!
