Penn State vs. Ohio State: Matt McGloin Officially Nittany Lions' Quarterback

Penn State finally has a starting quarterback.

At 12:51 p.m. on Nov. 15, Penn State interim head coach Tom Bradley closed the book on one of the longest quarterback competitions in Penn State history.

"Right now, Matt's the starter," Bradley told reporters during his weekly press conference on Tuesday at Beaver Stadium. "Matt," of course, refers to Matthew McGloin, who has been splitting time with sophomore Rob Bolden at the No. 1 quarterback spot since spring practice.

McGloin played the entire game at quarterback against Nebraska on Saturday, but it was still unclear if he'd officially won the job with former coach Joe Paterno now out. And though Bradley said he'll continue to monitor the quarterback situation on a week-to-week basis, for now, there doesn't appear to be any question about who Penn State's man under center will be going forward.

Bradley also confirmed that running back Silas Redd is "banged up," and will not be hit in practice this week. He does expect him to be able to play on Saturday against the Buckeyes, however.
