Penn State on PennLive 18 September, 2021 - 09:12pm

We have a thriller in Happy Valley tonight as No. 10 Penn State leads No. 22 Auburn 21-17 after three quarters. It's been a game of long drives as both teams have combined for four touchdown treks of at least 75 yards.

Of course, the other big storyline has been some questionable officiating. There have been bad spots, unexplained intentional grounding calls, and then there was Penn State punting on third down in the first half because officials mistakenly had it marked as fourth down despite the Nittany Lions' protests. Despite of the officiating, it's still been an exciting game, and the final 15 minutes should bring plenty more craziness with a White Out surrounding the field.

CBS Sports will be with you the entire way updating this story with the latest scores, analysis and highlights from Penn State vs. Auburn. Keep it locked here from kickoff through the final whistle.

FINAL: Penn State 28, Auburn 20

Auburn now at the PSU 26 with 3 seconds left. One play to see if there will be more plays to come.

Auburn now at the PSU 40 with 17 seconds to play. 

Auburn is at its 37 with 38 seconds and no timeouts. They need a touchdown and a two-point conversion to force OT.

Auburn's D gets off the field. Penn State forced to punt with 45 seconds left. The Nittany Lions call a timeout. Auburn has none left.

Nevermind. An Auburn pass interference will give the Nittany Lions a first down and get them out of the end zone. Auburn brought the house and left their corners on an island out wide so Sean Clifford lofted a deep ball hoping for either a completion or a flag. He got the flag.

The good news for Auburn is not all hope is lost. There are still 3 minutes left, and Penn State is at the goal line. 

Well, to say I hated that playcall would be an understatement. Auburn runs a fade to the back corner with an average size receiver, but even if he was 15-feet tall, Bo Nix's throw would've sailed a foot over his head. Just a terrible play.


It's 4th and goal at the 3. What a fantastic game this has been.

OMG wait until you see the hurdle by Auburn's Jarquez Hunter.

Demetris Robinson was open for what should've been an easy TD but he never saw the ball. It landed over his shoulder.

Penn State thought it just returned a fumble for a touchdown but replay shows the receiver was very clearly down. That said, I can't put anything past this crew.

Bo Nix with a soccer flop to get a late hit call and this officiating crew being awful decide to give it to him.

PSU D focusing on Tank Bigsby. Auburn should take a deep shot soon.

The Auburn defense comes through and forces a three-and-out. They sniffed out a sweep with Jahan Dotson on 3rd and 2 to stop him for a loss and now get the ball back at the AU 24 with 7:02 to play.

In a game that feels like it could come down to whichever team breaks serve, Penn State's defense just broke serve. Auburn picks up an illegal substitution penalty and then a false start that completely derails the drive and has to punt. Penn State gets the ball back at the PSU 29 following a nice return by Jahan Dotson. There's 9:11 to play. You have to think Penn State's dream scenario involves a long drive that turns this into a two-score game, whether it's with a field goal or touchdown.
