Drew Allar Report Card: Penn State Football Sends Message vs. Iowa

Drew Allar headed into the Penn State Football White Out coming off of his most inconsistent performance in blue and white after his first road start in Illinois, and bounced back in a major way.

In the first half, Allar looked like he could be headed for another average performance in a very rain-soaked White Out.

Allar completed 15 of 23 passes in the first half for 100 yards and one touchdown pass to Khalil Dinkins.

However, after the half, Allar turned up the heat, completing 10 of 14 passes for 66 yards and three touchdowns.

In his final touchdown pass of the day, Allar completed one of his best passes of the night, a fade into the corner of the endzone to KeAndre Lambert-Smith.

Overall, Allar played well in the rain and under the lights in his first White Out, especially in the second half where he was accurate and decisive.

Allar’s four touchdown passes are a career high.

Once again, Allar did not turn the ball over and has now started his Penn State career with 148 passing attempts without an interception.
