UNIVERSITY PARK – The offense was as good as advertised and the defense incredibly stingy as Penn State hammered Akron 52-0 in the Nittany Lions season opener.    The usual suspects starred for the 6th ranked team in the country.   Junior Saquon Barkley rushed for 172 yards on only 14 carries, scoring a pair of touchdowns.   Junior QB Trace McSorley scored a TD on the ground and threw for two scores, both to Senior Tight End Mike Gesicki.
