Penn State Football’s MVP vs. Rutgers: Christian Veilleux
Veilleux was the no-brainer choice for MVP here as the freshman stepped into a scoreless tie after Clifford left with an injury, behind a makeshift offensive line, and did everything that was asked of him and then some.
The freshman completed 15-of-24 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns and more importantly zero turnovers.
Veilleux was also showed great athleticism using his legs rushing for 36 yards on 10 rushes.
He looked comfortable behind center and makes you wonder where Penn State Football would be if he had come in against Iowa or Illinois and how potentially those games would have gone differently.
The Nittany Lions looked like a team in trouble as Clifford went to the sideline as they were generating no offense up to that point when Veilleux entered and he saved Penn State Football from what would have been a second embarrassing loss this season had they fallen to Rutgers.
