Penn State provided a little trick (vs. Illinois) and a treat (for Nittany Lions fans) on Saturday, as quarterback Christian Hackenberg caught a touchdown pass on this play. 

Hackenberg was 21 for 29 on the day and threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns, as Penn State easily cruised past the Illini, 39-0.
