Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith visited Penn State practice on our BTN Football Tour this August. The legendary Joe Paterno is back for another season, his 45th at the helm of Penn State. The Nittany Lions are out to make up for last season's disappointing 7-6 campaign. To do so, the defense must improve. The usually reliable unit allowed 23.7 points per game last year. Penn State also has to decide on a quarterback. Is it Rob Bolden or Matt McGloin? Penn State opens the season Sept. 3 against Indiana State. Watch all of our Penn State Preview video inside.
No surprise here, Penn State has a quarterback battle entering the season. Coach and Howard break down the race and tell you who they think should be under center.
Many have pegged Michael Mauti as the next great linebacker at Linebacker U. Injuries have gotten in the way, but if he can stay healthy, there's no telling what he can accomplish.
Which Nittany Lions do Coach and Howard think Big Ten fans should look out for in 2011? Find out below.
