Penn St. stifles Minnesota, 20-0

October 17, 2009 5:24:25 PM PDT
Navorro Bowman led a stifling defense, Evan Royster ran for 137 yards and Derek Moye had a disputed touchdown catch in No. 14 Penn State's easy 20-0 win Saturday over Minnesota. Moye's 12-yard reception in the end zone was initially ruled incomplete, then overturned after an official review for a TD on a drive that gave the Nittany Lions (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) a 13-0 lead late in the first half.

The offense moved the ball well despite being mired by penalties. Royster and Moye still gave the defense more than enough cushion over the struggling Gophers (4-3, 2-2) on a chilly homecoming game at Beaver Stadium.

Bowman led the defense with several big hits, and Penn State held a foe without a first-half touchdown for the seventh straight game.
