Penn State Football: 4 Things Bill Belton Must Do to Get Starting RB Job Back

Sophomore Bill Belton was named the starting running back heading into the 2012 season. That lasted all but one game when he left the team's opener against Ohio with an ankle injury.

He has since been replaced and head coach Bill O'Brien has shown little interest in making him the starter once more. He has just one carry in the last two games combined.

Belton's season can be labeled as nothing but a huge disappointment. He has just 258 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Injuries and inconsistent play have landed him on the bench in recent weeks.

Micahel Zordich and Zach Zwinak have been the most consistent runners for the Nittany Lions and have been used the most by coach O'Brien.

With just two games remaining in 2012, O'Brien seems content to leave Belton on the bench. However, that doesn't mean he won't be able to come back in 2013.

While things may seem bleak for Belton, there are things that he could improve on in order to work his way back into a major role.

The next few slides look at what he can do to get back into the starting lineup at Penn State.
