PISCATAWAY, N. Asics Gel Kayano 21 .J. -- No. 9 Penn State is a win away from getting a piece of its first conference title since 2011, the year Joe Paterno was fired.Tyler Davis kicked a career-high four field goals and the Nittany Lions stayed in the hunt for a berth in the Big Ten Conference title game with a 39-0 victory over Rutgers on Saturday night.The win kept Penn State tied for first place in the Big Ten East with Ohio State and Michigan, who face each other in Columbus, Ohio. If the Buckeyes win and the Nittany Lions take their home finale against Michigan State, Penn State goes to the title game, having beaten the Buckeyes in the regular season.When I was a freshman, I never thought with the sanctions that we would ever be in this type of position, and to be here with nine wins -- this is our first nine-win season since Ive been on the team. Im just really proud of it, fifth-year senior defensive end Evan Schwan said after Penn State (9-2, 7-1) won its seventh straight game, its longest streak since 11, the year the child sex abuse scandal broke involving one of Paternos former coaches.Penn State was never threatened in this one, which finished with rain and then sleet falling.Saquon Barkley and Andre Robinson scored on short third-quarter runs and the Nittany Lions defense limited Rutgers (2-9, 0-8) to 87 yards in total offense.Tight end Mike Gesicki said the team has not talked much about the postseason implications in recent weeks.We control our own destiny on Saturdays when we play whoever were playing and thats all we can control and thats all we care about, Gesicki said.Trace McSorley (17-of-33 for 210 yards) added a 27-yard scoring pass to Mark Allen and backup quarterback Tommy Stevens scored on a 12-yard run in the fourth quarter, when the Nittany Lions had 216 of their 549 yards in total offense.The loss was the eighth straight for Rutgers and rookie head coach Chris Ash, and the shutout was the fourth of the season. The last time Rutgers was shut out four times in a season was 1936, when it was blanked six straight games in a 1-6-1 season.This one hurt because it was Senior Day for the Scarlet Knights and they wanted to give their seniors a final win at home.Just want to thank our seniors, Ash said. Disappointing that Senior Night didnt end on a positive. Didnt give them an opportunity to leave their legacy in this football program and this university the way that we wanted.Penn State led 9-0 at the half and the story was Davis and the Nittany Lions defense.Davis hit from 32, 34 and 40 yards, the first two into a stiff wind. He added a 32-yarder early in the second half to push the lead to 19-0.The defense set the tone for the game after Penn State return man Miles Sanders muffed the opening kickoff and Rutgers recovered at the 19. Three plays lost seven yards and David Bonagura was wide right on a 45-yard field goal attempt.The defense has been better every week, Penn State linebacker Jason Cadinda said. We pitched a shutout, 80-something yards. Every week the confidence just builds and builds. We know what were capable of. Its as simple as that.Rutgers averaged less than two yards a play on its 50 offensive plays, finishing 1 of 14 on third-down attempts.Look at the stats, were not even one dimensional, Ash said.THE TAKEAWAYPenn State: While the Nittany Lions defense was outstanding, the offense did not do much until late. There also has to be concern because Barkley (16 carries for 92 yards) was dinged in the third quarter on a run inside the 10 and he did not return. Michigan State showed Saturday that it still had something in the tank despite a dreadful season and Penn State needs a healthy Barkley.Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights will get a chance to play spoiler again and give Ash his first Big Ten win. All they need to do is end Marylands bid for bowl eligibility.DUBIOUS RECORD: Rutgers Michael Cintron averaged 37.3 yards on 11 punts, including one that was blocked. He now has punted 89 times this season, a single-season record for a punter in the conference.UP NEXTPenn State: The Nittany Lions close out the conference regular season at home against Michigan State.Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights play at Maryland on Saturday.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Asics Aaron .

PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Howard isnt the slugger he once was. He can still clear the fences, though.Howard homered and Maikel Franco singled home the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday night.Howard put Philadelphia in front 1-0 by leading off the second with a 428-foot drive to right-center off Mets starter Logan Verrett. It was the 13th homer of the season and the 370th of his career for Howard, who moved into a tie with Gil Hodges for 77th on the all-time list.Obviously, in the moment, youre playing a game, but when I get time to sit back and reflect on it, its actually pretty cool, some of the names that Im there with, Howard said. Ive still got some work to do, but Im going to enjoy this one today.Carlos Ruiz doubled and had two hits for the fourth-place Phillies, who have won 11 of 15. Philadelphia also silenced a large contingent of Mets fans, who sometimes made Citizens Bank Park sound more like Citi Field for the second straight night.It was a good win, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. I didnt want to hear the Mets fans.Jose Reyes and Travis dArnaud drove in the runs for the Mets, who have dropped four of five since All-Star slugger Yoenis Cespedes was injured.Were not taking care of opportunities, manager Terry Collins said. Weve got to take advantage of all those opportunities. We had a chance to add on and we didnt get it done.New York failed to homer for just the second time in the last 14 games. The Mets entered having hit 14 homers in four games at Citizens Bank Park this season and 33 long balls over the last two years at Philadelphias home park.The Mets appeared primed to take the lead in the top of the seventh, but pinch-hitter Kelly Johnson flied out to short left field with runners on second and third and one out before left fielder Cody Asche made an excellent sliding catch for the final out on Asdrubal Cabreras sinking liner with the bases loaded.Cespedes was available as a pinch-hitter, but Collins said he went with Johnson because Cespedes couldnt run the bases in the event of a walk.Philadelphia capitalized on Cabreras throwing error at shortstoop in the bottom half for the go-ahead run. Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Clearance. Cabrera threw wide of first baseman James Loney, allowing speedy Peter Bourjos to reach with one out.

The right-hander singled and doubled to help his own cause.He really wasnt that sharp, but he pitched well enough to win, Mackanin said. Too many baserunners for my liking, but he got us into the seventh inning, so he did a good job that way.METS STARTING REPORTVerrett, making his seventh start in 25 appearances this season, gave up two runs and eight hits with four strikeouts and one walk in six innings. The right-hander is 1-4 with a 5.20 ERA as a starter this season. He took Matt Harveys spot in the rotation this month when the former ace was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome.I felt good, Verrett said. I felt like I threw the ball well and kept us in the ballgame.TRAINERS ROOMCespedes missed his fourth straight game due to a strained right quadriceps.
