James Franklin Reacts to OT Win Over Appalachian State
Penn State was the latest power five program to take Appalachian State's best punch. For a while, it looked like the Mountaineers were going to come into Happy Valley, and leave with a win. They put up 28 4th quarter points to take a late 38-31 lead, but Trace McSorley rallied the troops and hit the freshman, KJ Hamler for the game-tying score to force overtime. Miles Sanders put the team on top and then Amani Oruwariye made the play to win the game: an interception to cap a crazy opener, a 48-35, overtime win, one James Franklin won't soon forget.
