No. 7 Penn State defense gets five takeaways and pulls away from Illinois in 30-13 victory
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Cam Miller, Abdul Carter, Daequan Dixon and Johnny Hardy had interceptions and No. 7 Penn State took advantage of five Illinois turnovers to beat the Illini 30-13. The Nittany Lions overcame a sub-par effort by Drew Allar, who completed just 16 of 33 passes for 208 yards, and the offense. The second-year quarterback connected on 78% of his passes in his first two games. Luke Altmyer was intercepted four times before he was benched, and running back Josh McCray lost a fumble for Illinois, which has lost two straight.
