Score: Penn State 41, Indiana State 0 (4th Quarter, 8:17)
Good morning from Beaver Stadium, where the the Big Ten's Penn State Nittany Lions will open the 2011 season against Indiana State from the Missouri Valley Conference.
What we know at this point is that Rob Bolden has led the team off the bus, confirming the recent reports that he will be given the official start today for the Nittany Lions. It's a Penn State tradition to have the starting quarterback be the first person off the bus, but expect Bolden and Matt McGloin to see an equal number of snaps today.
The game kicks off at noon today and right now the special teams players for Penn State are going through warm-ups and drills on the field. The student section is starting to fill in, but there are plenty of spots remaining in the parking lots outside Beaver Stadium. There were some traffic problems heading in today, so we'll see if that causes some late arrivals.
The big question is whether or not Joe Paterno will be coaching from the press box today. There is word that he will be upstairs and we will update you once that rumor has been confirmed.
