Penn State Football: 3 Positives, 3 Negatives from Week 1

The Bill O'Brien era at Penn State started with a loss on Saturday. The Nittany Lions fell 24-14 to the Ohio Bobcats. Despite the loss, there were positives that the Lions can take away from the game. Of course, there are negatives that have to be addressed as well.

All was seeming to go as planned when the Lions jumped out to a 14-3 at halftime. The defense was controlling the game by shutting down the fast-paced Ohio offense. Matt McGloin looked like a totally different quarterback from last season and had the offense rolling.

As good as things were for PSU in the first half, they were just as bad in the second half. The Lions were outscored 21-0 in the half and were unable to establish any offense. The defense wore down and was unable to stop Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton.

This list looks at both the good and bad from Week 1. Starting with the good news first of course.
