No. 11 Penn St. nips No. 13 LSU 19-17 at Cap One

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Collin Wagner kicked a 21-yard field goal
with 57 seconds left to lift No. 11 Penn State to a 19-17 win
Friday over No. 13 LSU in a sloppy Capital One Bowl.

The Nittany Lions (11-2) gave up a 13-point lead in the second
half after Stevan Ridley's 1-yard touchdown run put LSU (9-4) ahead
17-16 with 12:49 left.

But quarterback Daryll Clark led the Nittany Lions on the
game-winning, 12-play drive in crunch time. Penn State had two
critical third-down conversions to help set up Wagner's game-winner
- one of four field goals on the day for kicker.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno got his record 24th bowl win and
handed Les Miles his first loss in five bowls as LSU coach.

A driving rainstorm at the start of the game made the field a
muddy mess.
