Penn State got its second straight win of the season in Week 4 and the second career win for head coach Bill O'Brien. The Lions defeated the Temple Owls 24-13 at Beaver Stadium.
Penn State overcame an injury to starting running back Michael Zordich and 100 yards in penalties to defeat the Owls.
After a slow start, the O'Brien's pro-style offense came alive before halftime and continued to impress. The defense stifled the Owls all day, not allowing their offense to really ever get going.
The Lions are now 2-2 on the season and start the Big Ten portion of their schedule in Week 5 when they travel to Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini in a tough road test.
The victory against Temple saw several players step up for the Lions. Penn State will need everyone to continue to improve and play hard in order for the 2012 season to end as a successful one.
