McGloin, Penn State Thrash EMU, 34-6

Penn State's Matt McGloin

UL-Monroe at Iowa - Football Highlights

(AP) Matt McGloin threw for three touchdowns and Penn State welcomed coach Joe Paterno back to the sideline with a 34-6 win Saturday over Eastern Michigan. Penn State (3-1) held the Eagles (2-2) to 68 on the ground – 221 below its season average – and forced three first-half turnovers. Nick Sukay‘s interception late in the half set up the second of McGloin’s scoring strikes, a 5-yarder to receiver Derek Moye for a 17-0 lead. It surely pleased the 84-year-old Paterno, who paced the sideline in the first half for the first time this season before returning to the press box after halftime with his team up comfortably. Read the full AP recap, check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.
