Watch: Penn State's Epic Comeback, Tecmo Bowl Style

Penn State's comeback in Tecmo Bowl form.


Penn State's epic comeback in the Big Ten Championship just got better.

Penn State escaped with an improbable victory after being down big early on against Wisconsin. And now you can relive that win in all of its glory. But this time, its Tecmo Bowl-style.

Wisconsin took a 28-7 lead into the final minute of the first half of the Big Ten Championship Game.

It looked like Wisconsin was going to run away with the Big Ten Title and have a shot at the College Football Playoff.

Then Trace McSorley found Saeed Blacknall for a 40-yard touchdown with 58 seconds remaining to cut the Badgers lead to 28-14.

Penn State, the best second half team in the country, needed another excellent second half to walk away with its first Big Ten title game win. The Nittany Lions outscored the Badgers 24-3 in the second half to escape with the win.

Next up for Penn State is USC. The Nittany Lions and Trojans will battle it out in the Grandaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl.

The game is set for a 5:00 p.m. E.T. kickoff on Jan. 2 and will broadcast on ESPN.
