Penn State scored the stupidest touchdown to blow its game against Indiana

IN drove 75 yards in seven plays on its ensuing possession, scoring a touchdown off a 1-yard quarterback sneak by Michael Penix to make the game 28-26 with 22 seconds remaining in regulation.

IN coach Tom Allen acknowledged that the Hoosiers wanted Ford to score.

"We have a signal to our defense to let the opposing team score", he said. "We liked the call and stayed with the call (after Penn State called timeout) and stayed with the call".

"In really six years at Penn State and 10 years of being a head coach, we've not been a team to commit penalties and we've not been a team to get turnovers, and tonight we had both", Penn State coach James Franklin said. We went through that situation on the sideline. "What we wanted to do was get as much as you can and get down".

"We'd been close so many times, and I was exhausted of being close", Allen said. "When you think about all the things that happened and all the plays that had to be made to win this game, it's just fantastic". "That's why it's so powerful to have that kind of finish and just to find a way to win". This time, Allen called for the defense to give up the touchdown, hoping for one more possession, and Devyn Ford obliged with a TD run that gave Penn State a 28-20 lead.

After leading the Hoosiers on a touchdown drive in the final minute of regulation and scoring on a 2-point conversion to force overtime, Penix hooked up with Whop Philyor for 9-yard TD pass in overtime and dove into the pylon for the decisive 2-point conversion to give in a 36-35 victory over No. 8 Penn State - its first win over a Top 10 team in more than 33 years. Penix took it in for a 2-yard keeper to convert the 2-point conversion and tie the game at 28-28. Penix scrambled to his left and leaped toward the end zone pylon.

The ball also clearly touched the boundary before it hit the pylon, but could it have been that the point of it crossed the plane of the goalline instead?

Either way, officials huddled to review the play and confirmed the ruling on the field.

Penn State: The mistakes proved costly. The Penn State defense then forced a turnover-on-downs deep in Indiana's territory, and took over at the 14-yard line with 1:42 remaining. We felt like we had our three players inolved in the play and one of those was going to get the ball or Michael was going to keep it. "Not a good combination".

IN beat the Nittany Lions for the second time in 24 matchups, and beat a Top 10 foe for the first time since a 31-10 victory at Ohio State on October 10, 1987.

"One play to win it", Allen said in reference to the 2-point conversion try. "I went out and gave it my all".
