Penn State Vs. Alabama: Joe Paterno Stands By Plans To Play Matt McGloin, Rob Bolden

After Saturday's 41-7 victory against Indiana State at Beaver Stadium, Penn State coach Joe Paterno he expected to see both Matthew McGloin and Rob Bolden log time at quarterback against No. 2 ranked Alabama at home this coming weekend.

During his weekly press conference on Tuesday, Paterno stuck to that game plan, expressing confidence in both players.

"You've got to understand, both those kids are so close," Paterno said. "And they're both good. Sometimes you guys don't realize these kids have worked so hard to have an opportunity, and they're so close that it's difficult for me to get up here and say 'Well so-and-so is better.' I think we're very fortunate to have this situation."

Paterno said the focus in practice will be getting the supporting cast ready to help the team, not just the quarterbacks, be in a position to win the game on Saturday. So if you're keeping score at home, it appears very little has changed on the quarterback front from Saturday to today.
