For the first time all season the quarterback job was a one-man job for Penn State. Matt McGloin got the start and played every offensive play for the Nittany Lions. McGloin completed 17 of 26 pass attempts for 192 yards and two touchdowns, which both came on the first two possessions for Penn State in the first quarter.
"I wasn't really surprised," McGloin said when asked about playing the entire game. "We were moving the ball great as an offense and there was really no need to float two guys in and out and I'm happy with the way we played today."
Still, after the game Joe Paterno was not committed to playing just one quarterback next week week against Illinois. While it seems the quarterback discussion has been put to rest, Paterno's lack of public confidence in McGloin is interesting to note.
"We won the game!" Paterno said when asked about the quarterback situation. "We talked to the kids about alternating from week to week, and both McGloin and Boldin knew the situation going in."
