Hackenberg, Penn State Top Illinois 24-17 in OT

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Christian Hackenberg hit Kyle Carter with a 15-yard

touchdown pass in overtime and Ryan Keiser sealed the win with an end zone

interception, lifting Penn State over Illinois 24-17 on Saturday.

Bill Belton rushed for 201 yards, the first Nittany Lion (5-3, 2-2 Big Ten)

to hit the 200-yard mark since Larry Johnson in 2002.

Penn State's Sam Ficken kicked a 35-yard field goal with 41 seconds left in

regulation, sending the game into OT.

Hackenberg, who threw for 240 yards, zipped a perfect pass over the middle to

Carter for the winner.

Nathan Scheelhaase's first pass of OT was picked off by Keiser. With a strong

second half, Scheelhaase rallied the Illini (3-5, 0-4) back from a 14-0

first-half hole to give them the lead.
