Penn State: One Win Away From Roses

Saturday, November 15, 2008 ·

Penn State had a sluggish start, but rebounded to beat Indiana 34-7. All everything Derrick Williams was superman again. Williams ran for 61 yards and a touchdown. He also caught 4 passes, for 62 yards and a touchdown. Daryll Clark turned the ball over 3 times, but still completed 20 passes for 239 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Senior wide receiver Deon Butler broke the school's all-time reception record after tying it in last week's game against Iowa. He now has 172 career receptions. Butler's accomplishment is amazing considering that he walked on to the football team as a defensive back.

The Penn State defense was phenomenal as they allowed Indiana to only net 6 first down. The lone touchdown allowed came on a 57-yard run by Indiana running back, Marcus Thigpen. Indiana had only 180 yards of total offense and was able to average only 3.39 yards per play, even with the huge touchdown run.

If Penn State wins next week at home against Michigan State, they will clinch a berth in a BCS Bowl, likely the Rose Bowl, and they will be Big 10 Champions. Regardless of last week's loss, this can still be a special season for the seniors.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
