Twitter reacts to Nick Singleton’s 100-yard kickoff return vs. Rutgers

After a slow start to the game by the Penn State offense, freshman running back Nick Singleton gave the Nittany Lions a big lift in the first quarter with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The score gave Penn State a 7-3 lead over Rutgers after the Scarlet Knights put the first dent in the scoreboard with a field goal.

It was the first career kickoff return touchdown by Singleton, and easily the best play on special teams by Penn State this season. And, naturally, it lit a charge on social media from Penn State Twitter.
