Penn State trailed 10-7 at the half, but had the belief it could still win. The Nittany Lions took the second half kickoff only to see their drive end on a Ricky Slade fumble. It started to get tense in Beaver Stadium as memories of the Appalachian State game crept into the fans heads.
Facing a 3rd and 6, Buffalo was looking to extend a drive much like they did in the first half. After two Jaret Patterson two-yard runs, the Bulls faced a down and distance they had converted frequently in the first half, but this time Matt Myers made a critical mistake. He looked left to Antonio Nunn, who had a whale of a game by the way, and Reid read it like you would expect from a guy with that surname.
Nunn had a great break, but the first down was in question had he caught it. If you look, Reid's eyes were on the ball and he made the break.
The quick break from read in that situation left Nunn on his heels and it was clear sailing from there.
A caravan of blockers that didn't even need to block someone. Penn State, like Reid, never looked back.
The play propelled the Nittany Lions to 38 second half points and a weird cover (just in case you bet), but it is also a good reason to buy an awesome shirt. Tense times for sure, but it was the perfect play to get Penn State rolling, and to a 2-0 record.
