Penn State Vs. Wisconsin: Nittany Lions Tied 7-7 After One

Despite entering the game as heavy 14.5-point road underdogs, the 9-2 Penn State Nittany Lions are neck and neck with the 9-2 Wisconsin Badgers after a quarter of football. The game is tied at seven.

The winner of today's game will be crowned the Big Ten Leader's Division champion and play Michigan State for the Big Ten Championship next week. 

Penn State struck first with a 44-yard touchdown pass from Matthew McGloin to Curtis Drake, but Wisconsin has scored since then on a Russell Wilson touchdown pass, and they're about to punch it in from the one yard-line to begin the second quarter.

Wisconsin has had the ball for 11 of the 15 minutes thus far, and has out-gained Penn State 152 to 75. Matthew McGloin is responsible for the game's only turnover with an interception. 

The remainder of the game can be seen on ESPN. Penn State will start the second quarter with the football, at the goaline.
