Nittany Lions freshman quarterback sensation Christian Hackenberg has captured the attention of Penn State fans with his big arm and pocket presence through the first four games, but his play hasn't been without flaw. Coming out of the bye week, "Hack" will need to show some improvement in a few areas to ensure success for his team through the Big Ten schedule.
Facing an Indiana team that gave up 623 total yards in its last game (Missouri) gives him a good opportunity to get off on the right foot.
This isn't an indictment by any stretch. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn't been impressed by Hackenberg, and he deserves the praise. However, he does at times make plays that remind you he is a freshman.
Here are a some things Hackenberg needs to improve upon over the rest of the season.
