Penn State falls to 0-3 for the first time since 2000

Maybe it’s a good thing fans aren’t allowed in this year.

The Nittany Lions, as 25-point favorites, suffered a stunning 35-19 blowout to Maryland on Saturday at Beaver Stadium.

They’re now 0-3 for the first time since 2001.

Terp quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa completed 18-of-26 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns – all in the first half when Maryland built a 28-7 lead.

Maryland, which led 35-7 before allowing two late scores, improved to 2-1.

It’s gloom and doom in Penn State camp.

“Mentally, I’m pissed,” quarterback Sean Clifford said. “We’re an 0-3 football team, a poorly performing football team. I’ve never lost like this in my life. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. I’m not going to point a single finger. There’s plays that need to be made, and I need to make them. It’s unacceptable.”
