STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Journey Brown was not sure if his heavy heart made him more difficult to tackle, but it definitely propelled the Penn State running back to his best game yet.
Brown, who played with the recent death of a young cousin on his mind, ran for 103 yards with three touchdowns and No. 12 Penn State pulled away from Rutgers 27-6 on Saturday.
"I always want to do my best regardless of the circumstances," Brown said. "It just gives me another `Why?' Why do I love this game? Why do I want to do what I want to do?"
