Haskins was nearly flawless in the win over Tulane, starting with nine consecutive completions and finishing 21-of-24 for 304 yards and five touchdowns, all in the first half. This game felt like the perfect tuneup for Penn State and a showdown with its all-star QB, Trace McSorley.

Grier tied a career high with five touchdown throws, placing his Heisman campaign firmly back on track after Hurricane Florence wiped out West Virginia's game at NC State last weekend.
