Late PSU FG drive, heady play by Navorro Bowman key Penn State's 19-17 win over LSU - Bob Flounders, The Patriot News
The year of 2010 started out with a sloppy game in the Capital One Bowl, but Penn State was able to come away with a victory on the strength of Collin Wagner's four field goals. Daryll Clark made sure he finished his career with a win in a bog game against a tough opponent.
Despite a semi-rough outing, Clark ended the day by throwing a deep touchdown to open the scoring and driving the team down field with the game on the line to set up the winning score. It will take some time before we really take a look at Clark and his legacy but for one day he was honored with an important victory.
Penn State finishes the season at 11-2 for the second straight season. Over the last five seasons Penn State has a 4-1 record in bowl games, a far cry from where the decade started for the program.
Now it is time to say good-bye to the seniors, find out which juniors will leave early (Navorro Bowman and Evan Royster?) and wrap up recruiting for the class of 2010. Next season should be interesting but we'll get more into that at a later time.
