(Next week: Penn State vs Rutgers, 8pm on 97.3 ESPN)
The Nittany Lions (2-0) totaled 425 yards total offense but two interceptions and a fumble kept Akron (1-1) within reach until late in the game.
The game featured 82 passes and 527 passing yards as opposed to just 175 on the ground. Akron quarterback Kyle Pohl was 24 of 46 for 208 yards but the Zips were unable to hit anything deep against the Nittany Lions.
Akron tried to cling to life in the fourth quarter with a 15-play drive that covered 67 yards and featured eight Pohl completions but ended at Penn State's 13 with four straight incompletions.
