Clifford throws 4 TDs, No. 11 Penn State tops Michigan St

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Sean Clifford threw four touchdown passes and No. 11 Penn State's defense tightened up late to beat Michigan State 35-16 in the regular-season finale on Saturday.

Tight end Theo Johnson caught two touchdown passes, Tyler Warren and running back Nick Singleton each caught one, and KeAndre Lambert-Smith threw a touchdown pass and caught another for the Nittany Lions (10-2, 6-2 Big Ten, No. 11 CFP).

Penn State evened the all-time series with the Spartans at 18-18-1, but needed a fourth-quarter push to do so.
