Drew Allar QB Report Card as Penn State Football Blows Out Delaware

Drew Allar continued where he finished off against WVU, leading Penn State Football easily past the Delaware Blue Hens Saturday afternoon in Happy Valley. In a game where Penn State focused on its rushing attack, Allar continued to show his impressive arm talent Saturday afternoon, completing 22 out of his 26 attempts for 204 yards and a touchdown. Allar also rushed five times for 27 yards and another touchdown.

Most impressive on the day was Allar’s ability to throw on the run and keep his eyes downfield while leaving the pocket. Late in the first half, Allar scrambled out of the pocket keeping his eyes downfield and hit Dante Cephas for 26 yards to set up a Nick Singleton touchdown.

 Like last week against the Mountaineers, Allar spread the ball around, hitting eight different Nittany Lions in his 22 completions. Unlike last week, Penn State and Allar had more of a focus on the tight ends, completing eight passes for 51 yards and a touchdown to tight ends. Overall, in only his second start, Allar continues to show why he was the number one recruit in his class. While his night likely won’t result in a second Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week award because of the focus on the running game, Allar did enough to continue to show why he will take Penn State to new heights.

Drew Allar Final Grade: A

Most importantly for Allar, and for Penn State Football, the sophomore phenom continues his steak of not turning the football over, now without an interception in his first 115 career pass attempts.
