College Park, Md. Sean Clifford threw for 398 yards and three touchdowns, ran for a score and carried No. 12 Penn State to yet another lopsided victory over Maryland, a 59-0 blowout Friday night that typified the one-sided nature of this regional series. Penn State scored on its first four possessions, led 38-0 at halftime and finished with 619 yards in its Big Ten opener.

After halftime, most of fans remaining from a rare sellout crowd of 53,228 at Maryland were the several thousand cheering for the Nittany Lions (4-0, 1-0). Because the Terrapins (2-2, 0-1) won their first two games at home by a combined 122 points and Penn State was coming off a tight 17-10 win over Pittsburgh, the Nittany Lions were favored by only a touchdown. But past performances held true. Penn State leads the series 40-2-1, winning the previous … [Read more...] about Penn State blows out Maryland
