Writeup courtesy of George Perez


The No. 6 Nittany Lions defeated the University of Massachusetts-Amherst with a score of 63-0 this weekend. This impressive scoring win makes it the 13th game in a row that Penn State has scored 30 or more points in a game. Manny Diaz’s defense got to the quarterback 7 times, continuing the team’s 11-game streak of recording at least three sacks. On the offensive side, Drew Allar remains interception-free this season, completing 16 of his 23 passes and one for a touchdown. The team travels to Columbus this weekend to take on the No. 3 Buckeyes in the Horseshoe.

Men’s Hockey:

Penn State Men’s Hockey came to victory over Clarkson and St. Lawrence this week, making their record 3-0 to start their young season. The team goes into this year after an impressive run in the NCAA tournament last year, and is looking to make it there again. The team’s skills have proven strong this week scoring a total of eight goals in their two games.

Women’s Soccer:

The No. 4 Women’s Soccer team advanced to 11-0-3 this week after beating Ohio State and tying Purdue. The team has outscored their opponents 32-6 this season, and is looking to do more damage this upcoming week against Northwestern. Look out for Payton Linnehan and Kaitlyn MacBean as they currently lead the team with 5 goals apiece this season, and hope to push the team further as we approach the Big Ten Tournament.

Men’s Soccer:

The Men’s soccer team handed No. 12 Northwestern their first loss of this season courtesy of the two captains, Femi Awodesu and Peter Mangione. The two Seniors scored a goal each propelling the team to their first top-25 win of the season. This week, they’ll be taking on Rutgers and looking to build momentum going into their senior night against Michigan.

Field Hockey:

The No. 15 Field Hockey team collected a big win this week against Michigan State in East Lansing. The team connected for four goals, and keepers Brie Barraco and Lauren Delgado had an amazing game, stopping Michigan State from finding the back of the net. Head Coach, Lisa Bervinchak Love, was super proud of her team and is hoping they can carry that momentum into their upcoming match against Michigan.

Men’s Swim and Dive:

The Men’s Swim and Dive team moved to 3-0 this week in their meets, after a couple of good late swims allowed them to outscore West Virginia. The team swept WVU in the dive category and was able to contribute big points to the overall score. As the team moves forward with their season, look for them to threaten more teams and push for an even better record.

Women’s Swim and Dive:

The Women’s Swim and Dive also propelled their season forward after securing a win against WVU. Look for them to take their winning momentum into South Bend, Indiana, where they will face both Notre Dame and Pitt.

Women’s Volleyball:

No. 3 Penn State Women’s volleyball played two matches this week against Iowa and Nebraska. The week started with a 3-0 sweep against the Hawkeyes, led by Sophomore standout, Alexa Markley. Markley set a career-high 17 kills during the match, exceeding her previous high of 15. Gr. Student Mac Podraza, another standout in the match, led the team with 44 assists in their big win. The win improved the team’s all-time series record with Iowa to 58-0. Unfortunately, the team dropped their second match of the week to Nebraska but is looking to bounce back in their match against the Hawkeyes this week in Rec Hall.
