McGloin: 'Penn State football is greatest team sport to play'

Penn State is the surprise team in the Big Ten. There are many reasons for that. One of the biggest is quarterback Matt McGloin. He has been a revelation running Bill O’Brien’s pro-style offense that makes liberal use of the passing game. The senior leads the Big Ten in passing yards (2,436) and touchdown passes (18) with just three interceptions while completing 62 percent of his attempts. McGloin entered 2012 with 3,119 career passing yards, 22 touchdowns, 14 picks and a 54 percent completion percentage in his first two seasons, both of which he spent continually fighting for the starting

Week 11 Power Rankings: Don't sleep on Indiana

Not a lot of movement in my latest Power Rankings following Week 10 of the season, as Ohio State and Nebraska retained possession of the top two spots.

Tom's Top 10: Would OSU beat other perfect teams?

Another week is in the books. The AP and Coaches polls are out. Now, it’s time to release my Top 10 for the week. Here’s a look at the good, the bad and the whatever-the-heck-I-feel-like-looking-at as I glance back on Saturday from my Sunday perch. 1. Is there a more thrilling team in the nation than Nebraska?

There was a 17-point comeback vs. Wisconsin; a 12-point comeback at Northwestern; a 10-point comeback at Michigan State. Keep those digitalis handy,
