Navy Vs. Penn State: Nittany Lions Dominate First Half, Lead Midshipmen 20-0

The Penn State Nittany Lions, looking for their first win of the season, have dominated the Navy Midshipmen in the first half and lead 20-0 after two quarters of play.

Nittany Lions quarterback Matt McGloin has been the star of the first half, completing 11 of 16 passes for 196 yards and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Allen Robinson has caught four balls for 111 of those yards and two of the touchdowns. Curtis Dukes has led the Penn State rushing attack, gaining 37 yards on seven carries.

Penn State has held Navy to just 130 total yards in the first half, 115 of which have come on the ground via the well-known Midshipmen option offense. The Nittany Lions, on the other hand, have 262 total yards of offense at halftime.

Penn State began the year with losses to Ohio and Virginia, but enter the second half of this game in great position to give head coach Bill O'Brien his first win at the school.
