Penn State is on the board and the offense hasn't even seen the field. Cornerback Chaz Powell just took the opening kickoff back 95 yards for the score. Penn State has a 7-0 just 13 seconds into the game.
This obviously goes without saying, but Penn State won the toss and decided to receive. Looks like a pretty good decision now.Devon Smith was the other Penn State player back for Penn State on the kick return. There was no sign of recently reinstated running back Stephfon Green who worked a lot of the kickoff duties during the 2010 season.
Beaver Stadium still isn't full yet. Most of the upper reaches of the north endzone's upper deck are still empty and student section hasn't quite filled in yet, either. Everything else is pretty full, however, so it looks like most people got through today's heavy traffic in State College without too many problems.
