Penn State vs. Purdue: Rob Bolden, Matt McGloin Will Continue To Split Time

Statistically, it's beginning to look like Matthew McGloin has earned an edge in Penn State's quarterback competition. The redshirt junior threw 19 of the Nittany Lions' 26 passes on Saturday against Iowa and saw a majority of the snaps as well.

At his weekly press conference on Tuesday, however, coach Joe Paterno said McGloin and sophomore Rob Bolden will continue to split time under center.

"It would be nice if we got to where we're going to play one," Paterno said. "But I'm not going to do that just to do it. I'm not going to second guess myself on that one. I'm not going to make any decision as to whether we're going to go one or two."

So far this season, McGloin has completed 58.9 percent of his passes for 758 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. His quarterback rating is 141.2. Bolden has completed 45.7 percent of his passes for 486 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions. His quarterback rating is 84.9.
