Penn State vs. Indiana: Rob Bolden Gets The Start

Penn State and Indiana have gotten their game in Bloomington underway this afternoon and we already have some news to report.

Coach Joe Paterno has returned to the sideline for the second straight week. We'll see how long he decides to stay down there after going upstairs for the second half last week against Eastern Michigan at Beaver Stadium.

Rob Bolden has earned his fifth straight start for the Nittany Lions at quarterback. Some speculated during the week that Matthew McGloin might get a start after throwing three touchdowns last week against the Eagles, but Paterno has obviously decided to start things off with Bolden again. Expect McGloin to see plenty of action, though.

The Penn State defense forced an Indiana three-and-out on the Hoosiers' first drive.

The Penn State offense is off to a nice start under Bolden as he just hit a deep pass to Derek Moye, setting Penn State up inside the Indiana 15-yardline. Beautiful play action fake there to help spring Moye.

The Lions have a touchdown wiped off the board, though, as a Silas Redd run is canceled out by a holding call. Bolden follows that up by throwing a tipped interception. Penn State gets nothing out of a promising drive.

Midway through the first quarter, it's still 0-0.
