Indiana gets beat by Penn State air attack

Posted: Updated:
STATE COLLEGE, PA -

Receiver Allen Robinson had three highlight-reel scoring catches and Matt McGloin threw for four touchdowns to lead Penn State in a 45-22 win Saturday over Indiana.

Zack Zwinak added 135 rushing yards, but the Nittany Lions (7-4, 5-2 Big Ten) did most of their damage through the air against the porous Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5).

Indiana did turn two turnovers into 10 points, including a 46-yarder from Mitch Ewald to get within 28-22 in the third quarter.

Zwinak rumbled in from 1 yard out on the ensuing drive to put Penn State back ahead comfortably by two touchdowns.

Cameron Coffman threw for 454 yards for Indiana. With just a trip to Purdue left on the schedule, the Hoosiers lost a chance to become bowl eligible with six wins.

Star linebacker Michael Mauti was carted off in the first quarter after hurting his left knee.
