Penn State's Clark continues to sizzle
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Daryll Clark is performing surgery on Michigan's secondary right now, and he's using no anesthetic.
The Penn State senior quarterback fired his third touchdown pass to increase his team's lead to 25-10 early in the third quarter. On third-and-9 from the Michigan 11, Clark identified a mismatch as wide receiver Graham Zug went against linebacker Stevie Brown. Zug easily shook Brown and was wide open in the end zone for his second touchdown grab.
Michigan cornerback Donovan Warren will play in the NFL, but the rest of the secondary leaves a lot to be desired. Penn State's wide receivers and tight end Andrew Quarless are finding tons of open space, and Clark has taken advantage so far. He has completed 12 of 17 passes for 184 yards.
