Once again, senior linebacker and team leader Michael Mauti showed why he's one of the nation's premier linebackers.
After a nine-tackle performance against Temple, Mauti pushed himself to second on the Big Ten tackles leaders list.
With a forced fumble and pass break-up on Saturday, Mauti is in absolute beast mode and is a force to be reckoned with heading into Big Ten play.
After three solo tackles and three assisted tackles, Gerald Hodges once again showed that he's an darn good outside linebacker.
Not only did he make several tackles, but he also did well in man-to-man coverage throughout the entire contest.
The only thing that was disappointing was the lack of pressure on Temple quarterback Chris Coyer.
Considering Hodges will most likely be a first to second-round draft pick in April, you have to expect at least one sack from him against a team like Temple.
Even though he only tallied three total tackles, underrated linebacker Glenn Carson was throwing his body all around the field on Saturday.
Carson, a junior, made his presence felt on the field with some big hits against Temple.
However, you would hope for more production from a guy like Carson in the game right before the Big Ten opener.
