Penn State Football collected their second shutout of the season in a 28-0 victory over the Scarlet Knights on Saturday 

Penn State Football got a much needed victory over Rutgers on Saturday on Senior Day, as the Nittany Lions logged their second shutout win of the season at Beaver Stadium.

The Lions were dealing with a flu breakout running through the team and played without both starting tackles out and a sick and beat up Sean Clifford, which led to freshman quarterback Christian Veilleux making his collegiate debut.

Veilleux entered a scoreless game and shined, throwing for 235 yards and three touchdowns, leading four scoring drives for the Nittany Lions.

The defense was lights out for Penn State Football not letting Rutgers even cross the 50 yard line until the fourth quarter, eventually collecting their second shut out of the season.

With Penn State Football getting to 7-4, let’s hand out some grades and an MVP from the win.

Parker Washington 

Grade: A-

Parker Washington is rather quietly having a very good sophomore season for Penn State Football, and it continued on Saturday.

Washington led the team in receiving with six catches for 72 yards and a highlight reel worthy touchdown grab in the end zone.

With Jahan Dotson locked up for most of the day and Clifford on the sideline, it was imperative Washington step up and he did.

Listed at only five-foot-ten he has shown the ability to go up and make a play on the ball and did against Rutgers even w a defender draped all over him.
