Penn State wrapped up its 2014 season in dramatic fashion with a 31-30 victory over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl. The Nittany Lions capitalized on a Golden Eagles missed extra point in the first overtime period, when Christian Hackenberg connected with tight end Kyle Carter for the game-winning score. After nailing the tying field goal, Sam Ficken drilled the extra point to deliver a walk-off win.
The victory delivered encouraging signs for a beleaguered offense that struggled during Big Ten play and ranked last in the league and 110th nationally in scoring, averaging 20.6 points per game. Christian Hackenberg (371 yards, 4 TDs) and Chris Godwin (7 rec., 140 yards, TD) were both standouts as Penn State delivered its highest yardage output (453 yards) in over three months.
