With youth, Hackenberg, future bright for Nittany Lions

By Ashley Chase
Prior to Saturday's game against Penn State, Wisconsin  had only allowed one play over 50 yards in the 721 plays they faced this season. Against the Nittany Lions, the Badgers allowed four 50-plus plays.

Christian Hackenberg led the Lions with 21-for-30 passing, 4 touchdowns, and three of those 50-yard plays. Hackenberg connected with fellow freshman tight end Adam Breneman for the first touchdown. The freshman also hit Allen Robinson with a 52-yard pass as part of Robinson's 122-yard day, and dropped a 59-yard bomb to Eugene Lewis, one of the scores that helped put Wisconsin away for good.

The win was not only a win for a team determined to prove they shouldn't have been 24-point underdogs, but a team that sent its seniors out with a win, knowing the program is built to succeed with the strength of it's youth, led by Hackenberg.
