Report Card: Grading Penn State’s Week 1 win over Wisconsin

Penn State defeated the Badgers 16-10 in a game that came down to the wire. The offense showed some guts, even though they were getting hotter in the second half.

Let us now grade Penn State’s performance over the Badgers.

This is a fair grade considering Sean Clifford’s struggles early in the game. He was strong at the end and did well when it really mattered. He made some mistakes in the beginning of the game.

Penn State will be returning to State College next weekend in their home opener against Ball State. This should be a simple game for the Nittany Lions, and Clifford will have a chance to find his rhythm in the offense. Although he didn’t play in the fourth quarter against Wisconsin, he is now familiar with a brand new offense.
