Allen needed to pull out every trick in the book, too, especially afterSean Cliffordhooked up with Jahan Dotson on a 60-yard TD pass to give Penn State Penn State first lead of the second half, 21-20 with 2:30 left in regulation. Penn State sacked Penix on the next two plays, forced him to throw the ball away on third and an incompletion on fourth, taking the ball back on down at the Indiana 14.
