IU: McGloin/A-Rob Records Watch

Matt McGloin

The Penn State quarterback and wideout continued to smash records in the Nittany Lions' win over Indiana at Beaver Stadium Saturday.

The Beaver Stadium press box announcer let the media know every time a Penn State record fell during the Nittany Lions' 45-22 win over Indiana Saturday.

Thanks to QB Matt McGloin and WR Allen Robinson, he did a lot of announcing of records.

A senior, McGloin completed 22 of 32 passes for 395 yards and four scores. A sophomore, Robinson caught 10 passes for 197 yards and three TDs.

Here is a recap of the records that were impacted by the dynamic duo, courtesy of PSU Athletic Communications.
