YSU beats Illinois State in home finale

Everything has been for the seniors this week for the Youngstown State football team and those 12 seniors took it upon themselves to finish their careers at Stambaugh Stadium in a blaze of glory.

They were the reason the Penguins (5-5, 3-4 Missouri Valley Football Conference) closed out their home schedule Saturday with a 30-18 victory over Illinois State before a crowd announced at 12,493.

Senior quarterback Brandon Summers came within one yard of his career-best performance, passing for 346 yards and two touchdowns, while senior tailback Kevin Smith had his third 100-yard rushing game with 121 yards on 27 carries and one touchdown.
