Northwestern’s Venric Mark punt return TD (video)

When Venric Mark of Northwestern returned this punt 75 yards for a TD, the Wildcats took an 11 point lead at Penn State. It looked like NU might get their first 6-0 start since 1962 and Pat Fitzgerald would get his first win over PSU.

But here is Mark going almost untouched on a special return. Watch below.

It’s tough to pick Northwestern to win any game in which they’re without Kain Colter and Venric Mark. […]
