ANALYZE THIS: Green Option Play

Help us break down one of the Nittany Lions' plays from their win at Purdue Saturday. The setting here: third-and-goal from the Boilermaker 2-yard line in early in the fourth quarter.

Penn State was beating Purdue 17-0 early in the fourth quarter Saturday when the Nittany Lions unleashed a new call from their Spread HD offense.

The third-down play had touchdown written all over it, but somehow resulted in a 1-yard loss that forced a field goal attempt.

Why did PSU run the option? Were the Boilermakers ready for it? What ultimately went wrong for the Lions?

You tell us.
