    Did they review 23's interception at the end of the game? There is no doubt the foot crossed the line, but It also looked like the ball may have crossed the line on the interception return.

    really gotta hand it to the refs on this one. they did a great job not calling penalties on the home team
    DB tackled PSU WR on second INT
    DPI in 4th when the ball was uncatchable and out of bounds
    No call when PSU WR was tackled on game ending INT

    I honestly think the only two games Minnesota may realistically lose are Wisconsin and Ohio State. If they beat Iowa they win the Big 10 West, regardless of what Wisconsin does

  • Joel Drew Walden [King, M. L. ES]

    Winning ones conference should be a requirement,the top 4 should be the BEST IN THEIR CONFERENCE 1) LSU ( they have beat 4 teams in the top 10) best in the SEC. 2) Ohio St best in B1G. 3) Clemson best in ACC. 4) Baylor (yes Baylor undefeated and they beat K state 31-10) 5) Minnesota (no team with 1 loss should should be ahead of a undefeated team) 6) Georgia
    7) Oregon 8) Alabama ,( has not beat a top 20 team all season ) 9)Utah 10) Penn state.

    I wish they could find a way to level the playing field for college football. I get tired of seeing the same teams at the top. I'm sure Alabama fans love it, but lets find a way for others to taste the national championship. I hope Minnesota can break the mold.
    Go gophers!

  • Canned Heat
    Canned Heat 29 days ago

    I didn't have a pick in this game and Minnesota played well but there were three or four calls in this game that went Minnesota's way, they were bad call and any one of them would have tipped the game in Penn State's favor. Penn state is the better team.
    Football rules and officiating are a joke, both pro and college. There is no consistency , in officiating or interpretation and at this point it is at best unprofessional at worst the whole enterprise is a crooked gambling enterprise. I would not bet on the outcome of any football game because a few bad calls can skew the results and often do.
    I don't know if bean counters in their never ending battle to make the game more entertaining have simply made the general layout of the game stupid or if the semi-proffesional refs just can't keep up. It might help if the rules stayed put for a stretch so that the refs could get more consistent but I suspect that the best interest of the GAME are far less important than the financial bottom line. There's a PILE of money riding on football games- advertising, endorsements, luxury boxes, etc., etc. The integrity of the game is not even secondary.
    I feel bad for the guys who have tuned themselves from an early age for the love of the game, who risked injury and social lives to get to the college game and eventually the pros for possibly a shot at an appearance in a Super Bowl and then have their team knocked out of the playoffs after a blind-side cold cocking a full second before a pass arrives go "unnoticed" by officials and the game falls to the Rams. There are some players on the Saints who may never get that far again. So What, the leagues making billions.

      Canned Heat like how they refused to call holding on PSUs offensive line all frickin night... Carter Coughlin was out there getting mugged and no one said anything. In the stands, we were all yelling all game about it but ok. How about the TD Penn St got that was a delay of game but apparently no one wants to call it. Don’t blame the refs. Penn St got beat. Their saving grace was Tanner’s one overthrow to Tyler Johnson in the end zone and Shannon Brooks fumbling for the 1st time all year.

    The Gophers huge (but young) offensive line has developed tremendously since the first 4 rough games at the start of the season. Once they figured out how to run block, Minnesota played much of their BG10 schedule re-establishing the running game they are known for from past years. RB's Smith and Brooks were coming back from being out with injuries last year. Minnesota quickly became a two-headed monster on offense. The passing game was already well established with Tanner Morgan throwing to 3 excellent receivers. Opposing teams had a difficult time preparing for this Minnesota offense that quickly gained momentum. Nebraska seemed to have focused on stopping the pass and they ended up getting shredded by the Gopher ground game. Penn State came in excelling on stopping the run game. Minnesota instead dished up a pass attack that really exposed the PS secondary. We can thank that much improved offensive line because Tanner Morgan is money on his passes if you give him just a little time.

    Lmao Minnesota fans acting like they would beat Penn state if the game was played in Happy Valley. Y’all have no idea how home field plays in this game, and I bet if this game was played on a neutral field, Penn State would win 8/10 times. Stop acting like you guys deserve top 4, y’all ain’t even close to competing with the teams up there. And no Penn State is no Alabama, Clemson, LSU, or Ohio State or even Georgia so stop using it.

    Aside from the game, I don't understand people that go to a Sports bar to socialize, not to watch the game. I had the misfortune to be sitting next to someone I knew who TALKED the entire second half of the football game. He was talking out of the bottle somewhat, but people that are not interested in the football game should go somewhere else. I know the man and didn't want to offend him, but I am going somewhere else to watch next weeks game. If it was a stranger sitting next to me, I would have told him to put a lid on it. No, I don't have cable and can't watch it at home. I refuse to pay the outrageous rates that Comcast charges for programs I have no interest in watching.

    Penn State fan here, that was an impressive game from Minnesota. I thought Penn State would beat Minnesota but I really Lee Corso'd that prediction. You didn't just win but you had control of the game from the middle of the second quarter onward. Once we had to settle for that field goal, you guys had all the momentum and never lost it except for a brief moment in the fourth quarter before that pick. No excuses here, the better team won, not just because of the points, but the eye test told me you were the better team. You guys remind me of 2009 Iowa, a team involved in a lot of close games but always finding ways to win. I still believe to this day if Stanzi never got hurt, Iowa beats Northwestern and Ohio State and plays for all the marbles and possibly wins. One small bit of optimism, Penn State still outperformed preseason expectations, this was supposed to be our rebuilding year, most picked us to go 7-5 or 8-4. Barring a 1999-esque collapse, we still have a great shot at a 10-win season.

    PSU barely beats Unranked Pitt, needed a goal line stand and a stop in the red zone as time expired to survive then lose to Minnesota......their fans will still say they deserve to be in CFP.

    @ about the 1:09 mark, you see KJ getting mugged by the DB while he was turning to track the incoming ball. No call.
    Turned into a 50 yd return, and eventual MN TD. Possible 14 pt swing on this one bad call.
    On the last PSU play, you see Dotson getting mugged on his way across the middle. No call.
    Also on the last drive, a offensive PI (pick) call against Daniel George was pretty ridiculous... we go from the 2 to the 24 yd line.
    This wasn't one of those games where PSU was in a good game, and got beat.
    This was a game where the home team is competent, hot, and amongst their excited fan base... and when your QB throws up what were really jump balls, either PSU blew the coverage completely... or when they did cover close, made very poor decisions on playing the ball, and making an actual tackle.
    Our corners are definitely overmatched with strong, tall WRs like MN's. PSU's front 7 was good, the secondary was poor.
    PSU's QB threw balls late, high & into the turf. And these weren't really pressure throws... they should have been made.
    O line was good, RBs were good, QB terrible day, and some drops by the WRs.
    All in all, solid effort by MN.... poor showing by PSU... some poor officiating which helped decide the game.
