That doesn't exactly lend to any sort of bragging rights among such a crowded - and high-ranked - conference, but with four games left (and Ohio State still having to face bitter rival MI at the end of November) the Nittany Lions could find themselves still in the title game discussion.

Just after 7 p.m., more than seven hours after the game began, Michigan State kicker Matt Coghlin hit a game-winning 34-yard field goal to give the No. 24 Spartans an upset 27-24 victory over No. 7 Penn State. Penn State's forecast remains gloomy. Barkley had 14 carries for 63 yards, caught three passes for 33 yards and had two kick returns for 15 yards.

The earliest the game will resume is now 5:30 p.m. EST after the matchup went into a weather delay just after 1 p.m. EST. The sophomore finished with 400 passing yards in the Spartans' biggest win of the season so far. The Spartans turned the ball over on downs before knotting the score on their next drive.

The game - which was halted for three hours and 23 minutes in the middle of the second quarter because of lightening - game down to the final possession.

Michigan State took its first lead of the game midway through the third quarter after driving 91 yards in 10 plays. Penn State's College Football Playoff hopes likely went down with the loss, having lost their last two by a combined four points.

Dowell came up with his second interception of the game and third overall for the Spartans, but Penn State responded by picking off Lewerke for the first time. After eight plays, the Nittany Lions were faced with a decision.
