The quarterback situation for Penn State is the scariest coming into this season. Rob Bolden is the likely starter, but will he be mentally ready after being denied a transfer request in January? If Bolden falls flat against Alabama in week two, look for Matt McGloin to start at Temple in week three. Evan Royster is gone, but the young Silas Redd is capable of filling the hole in the backfield after averaging 5.7 yards per carry last season as Royster’s backup. The “O” and “D” have six returning starters a piece; expect both units to finish in the middle of the pack in the division. Their conference schedule plays into the Lions favor. If they can get past Iowa on Oct. 15, they may be 5-0 going into their match up with Nebraska. However, expect the Lions to take a nose dive those last three weeks against Nebraska, Ohio State and Wisconsin. A 5-3 record is possible, but expect a 4-4 record to end the conference schedule and a finish of third in the division.
