Indiana vs. Penn State score: Matt McGloin posting huge numbers

We're three quarters into Saturday's Indiana vs. Penn State matchup, and PSU quarterback Matt McGloin is having himself a record-setting game. In the third quarter, he surpassed Daryll Clark for Penn State's single-season passing record. He also set a personal single-game mark with 365 yards.

McGloin's top target against Indiana has been Allen Robinson, who has eight catches for 165 yards and three touchdowns. Robinson would have even more, too, if McGloin hadn't overthrown a couple of balls, including one deep ball, to him in the third quarter. But other than that, and a first-half interception, it's been an outstanding game for McGloin, who's now 20-of-29 with four touchdowns and just that one pick. In a high-scoring game, Penn State's current 42-22 lead doesn't amount to an automatic victory, so expect McGloin to continue throwing in the fourth quarter. If he does, it wouldn't be a shock to see him throw for 450 yards or more. If he can even get to 400, he'll set a school record for a single game. Not bad for a former walk-on.
