The Spartans (21-5, 9-4 Big Ten) were coming off back-to-back road losses which likely knocked them out of the conference championship chase.
Stanley Pringle had 12 points for the Nittany Lions (12-13, 4-9).
Michigan State is 15-0 at home this season, including 7-0 in Big Ten action. The Spartans haven't won a Big Ten title since 2001 and likely won't this season, either, despite being the preseason favorite.
They have lost four games away from East Lansing, including defeats at Purdue and Indiana last week that all but eliminated Michigan State from Big Ten title contention.
The Nittany Lions have lost five straight on the road. Their last win away from home was at Illinois on Jan. 6.
Penn State has never won in East Lansing, losing 16 straight.
