Clark leads PSU over LSU in Capital One Bowl

Senior quarterback Daryll Clark finally has a signature win on his collegiate resume.

Clark completed 18-of-35 pass attempts for 216 yards and a touchdown in Penn State’s 19-17 victory over LSU in the Capital One Bowl on Friday. Clark led the Nittany Lions on a 12-play, 65-yard drive that eclipsed 5:57 off the clock and ended with a 21-yard field goal by Collin Wagner to give PSU the lead with just under a minute left to play.

Wagner deserves a ton of credit for converting all four of his field goal attempts on a horrible playing surface. Both he, Clark and linebacker Sean Lee stepped up big-time when Penn State needed it most.

LSU mismanaged the clock in the final minute of the game, which cost them an opportunity to kick a game-winning field goal attempt. The situation was similar to the one in which they mismanaged the clock in a loss to Ole’ Miss earlier in the year, so Les Miles has some work to do with his team in that area heading into next season.
