STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) – Penn State men’s soccer pushed two-time defending Big Ten champion Indiana to the brink Saturday night.

Indiana has now won three straight Big Ten championships.

Liam Butts sent the game into overtime with the tying goal in the 82nd minute.

Penn State will now await its seed in the NCAA tournament.
