No. 10 Penn State held on late to defeat No. 22 Auburn 28-20 in a thriller Saturday night in Happy Valley. The game saw both teams trade long touchdown drives while dealing with questionable officiating decisions from the SEC crew in what ended up as one of the most entertaining games through three weeks of the 2021 college football season.
The game came down to the final play as Auburn — down eight with no timeouts — drove in the final minutes. In the end, Tigers quarterback Bo Nix’s heave toward the end zone as time expired was broken up to seal the win for the Nittany Lions and give Penn State its second win over a ranked team already this season.
