Yup, it was a blowout. Penn State defeated Eastern Michigan 45-7. Yikes. Let’s look at some details from Philadelphia Inquirer:
Eastern Michigan had four first downs in the first quarter, but Penn State’s defense kept the Eagles off the scoreboard, and limited them to 111 yards (2.7 yards per play) in the final three quarters.
Defensive tackle DaQuan Jones nine tackles, two were for a loss, including a sack. Philadelphia native Nyeem Wartman had six tackles and broke up three passes, and Glenn Carson led the Lions with 10 takedowns.
Yeah, it was a defensive show. I mean, they did score 45 points so they did some scoring too. Either side of the ball, the boys in blue did their thing.
