Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford The Nittani Lions seem to have lost their confidence to win this season, struggling to find a rhythm behind an under-performing offensive line and any glimpse of a hasty attack with a number of elite level balkiers. Not available.
The College GameDay crew assessed Clifford’s game before the kickoff in Nebraska on Saturday and in the first half, it was more on similar issues with the veteran quarterback, after which the boundary was thrown early. The second quarter saw a 26-yard return for a score.
Nebraska’s scoop and score widened the gap to 24-3 before halftime, the Huskers’ biggest lead of the season.
“Sean Clifford “Don’t throw the game 50 times and win,” Desmond Howard said during Saturday’s GameDay telecast.
In Penn State’s next possession, Clifford missed a wide open receiver in the third open in the red zone and threw the ball out from behind the end zone. Penn State will settle for a field goal.
“I can’t locate Penn State,” Kirk Herbstreit said. The margins they are trading are destroying them. They cannot run the ball. This is putting Sean Clifford and the offense in a really difficult place for any kind of balance. They are defending, giving big plays through the air and a lot of things are not going well.
