Rather than spend a slide on each winner (which there would be quite a few of) it's easier just to group everyone and hand out game balls all at once.
QB Matt McGloin
It's almost not even fair to keep throwing him in on these winners-and-losers stories. Every game, McGloin seems to come out as one of the stars.
This time he tossed for 289 and two scores, stayed error free and tacked on another 26 yards on the ground. He hit nine different receivers, including six who had more than one catch.
RB Bill Belton
If that wasn't a statement game, I don't know what is.
If this game would have been closer, Belton likely would have approached 200 yards on the ground, but instead took 16 carries for 103 yards and three scores.
The only place he didn't contribute was in the passing game. Bummer.
TE Kyle Carter
Carter tied a career high with six receptions and set a career high in receiving yards with 85.
He didn't record a score, but he had a big 34-yard grab. You don't see wide out Allen Robinson get outgained in this offense much, but Carter found his openings and McGloin took advantage.
Big game for the young guy.
LB Michael Mauti
Mauti is the McGloin of this defense. He always seems to come out a winner in these things.
The senior tacked on another seven tackles (low by his standards this season) and contributed a sack as well. But he also snagged his third interception in three games, returning it 20 yards in the process.
He's the heart and soul of this defense and continues to play like it.
K Sam Ficken
Alright, maybe it's picking on him a little, but congratulations to Ficken for making one of his two attempts, a 34-yarder.
Granted, 1-of-2 two isn't good by any stretch, but maybe this guy just needs some praise after the season he's had. He also converted all five extra points and drilled many of his kickoffs into the end zone.
Coach Bill O'Brien
After having his coaching questioned following two tough losses to start the season (seems like an eternity ago), O'Brien has his team running like a machine.
His offense is clicking, his defense is making plays, and neither side is making critical errors.
Plus he's one of three first-year coaches in school history to tally a five-game winning streak. Not bad for the man charged with replacing Joe Paterno.
