One of the biggest turning points of Penn State’s victory over San Diego State was this fumble recovery by Austin Johnson, which led directly to a touchdown as the big man raced down the sideline. San Diego Stae was down six points at the time and seemed to have the momentum as the Aztecs were moving down the field. After Johnson’s touchdown return though, San Diego State was kept off the scoreboard the rest of the afternoon.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSo8upBsuK0]
Johnson’s touchdown was the third turnover Penn State has forced this season that has led to points, and was the second turnover that led to a Penn State touchdown this season.
