Matt McGloin

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

Taylor Martinez

Debate it: Choose 1 QB to lead a late drive

Three Big Ten quarterbacks led game-winning drives in the waning moments last Saturday. Two of the names – Taylor Martinez and Denard Robinson – were no big surprise, but the other, and perhaps most impressive, one – Kenny Guiton – sure was. That got BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina thinking: If your team needs a game-winning drive, which Big Ten quarterback would you pick? See their answers in this post. Tom: That’s easy: Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez. He may not have the best arm in the Big Ten (that may be Matt McGloin). And he may not be the best

Jake Ryan

Week 9 Player Rankings: Ryan on the rise

With Week 8 behind us, it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Again, I’m doing these a little different this year. Whereas I used to rank the top 10 players – a practice that was tough due to all the talent on both sides of the ball – I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six of both? Because it opens up the field, plus there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.
