Penn State earned an impressive victory for the second straight week with a 24-13 win over rival Temple. Although Temple came in looking to run all over the Penn State defense, that defense shut down Temple all day until a touchdown in garbage time.
Meanwhile, the offense put together a solid effort and nearly 500 yards on a defense that is likely comparable in quality to many of the Big Ten defenses. After all, Temple finished third in the country last year in defense behind only LSU and Alabama.
Plus, this win adds another team to the list of Big Ten teams with wins over BCS conference opponents because Temple is in the Big East again. Bill O'Brien has his team headed in the right direction coming into conference play, so let's look at 10 things we learned in today's victory.
