As Bill O'Brien sprinted off into the locker after an awkward handshake with Tim Beckman, he couldn't have been anything but proud of his team.

In many aspects, the Nittany Lions have come a long way since their opening loss to Ohio. 

In their game against Illinois, Penn State was able to find a solid mix of power running and play action passing that led to a 35-7 romping of the Illini.
