The Nittany Lions are coming off of a commanding 63-10 victory over Kent State.

Of those 387 yards, 200 belonged to Sanders, who took over for Saquon Barkley this fall and has picked up right where the All-American left off. Sanders earned his first 200 yard game and now since only one behind Barkley's career total at Penn State.
