STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Christian Hackenberg threw for 311 yards and a touchdown, and Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton each ran for a pair of scores, leading Penn State past Eastern Michigan 45-7 on Saturday.

Hackenberg went 23 of 33 and overcame a shaky start to lead Penn State (2-0) to a win in its home opener. He connected with Allen Robinson for a 45-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter that helped put the game away. He set a Penn State mark for yards passing by a freshman.

After the running game never got going in the season opener vs. Syracuse, Zwinak broke through for a pair of short scores. Belton added a 51-yard touchdown run in the fourth and had 108 yards rushing.
Akeel Lynch added a 27-yard score in the fourth and also had 108 yards rushing.

Penn State’s Sam Ficken set a school record with his 14th straight field goal, a 39-yarder that closed the first half.

Eastern Michigan (1-1) scored off a fumble to avoid the shutout.
