Penn State vs. Purdue score: Live game updates, college football scores, NCAA highlights today

Penn State leads Purdue 21-10 at halftime of a game that took a wild swing just before the midway whistle. Both teams made mistakes, allowing the other side to capitalize. Penalties kept drives alive that resulted in touchdowns for both teams, but the first turnover of the night may have turned this game on its head.

After Penn State took a 14-10 lead late in the first half, Purdue put together a nice drive and was in Penn State territory when TJ Sheffield was stripped by Zakee Wheatley. Penn State’s Joey Porter recovered the fumble, but instead of kneeling and going into the locker room with a lead, Penn State was aggressive and took shots downfield. Sean Clifford found tight end Brenton Strange for a 67-yard touchdown with 2 seconds left in the half to make it a 21-10 game. If there’s any good news for Purdue, it will get the ball to start the second half with neither quarterback having a notably great game through 30 minutes. In fact, the MVP might be Penn State punter Barney Amor, who has done an excellent job pinning the Boilermakers deep in their territory with his kicks.
