TicketCity Bowl 2012: Matt McGloin Misses Practice Again

Less than a week away from Penn State's TicketCity Bowl matchup against Houston on Jan. 2, its quarterback situation remains in flux as Ron Musselman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tweets.

Tom Bradley said QB Matt McGloin did not practice again today. It is looking more and more like Rob Bolden will start vs. Houston.

McGloin suffered a possible seizure and concussion-like symptoms after hitting his head in an altercation with teammate Curtis Drake back at Penn State's practice facility on Dec. 17. McGloin has started all three games under interim head coach Tom Bradley since Joe Paterno's firing on Nov. 9 in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal and has thrown for 1,571 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions this season.

If Bolden is called upon to start, he'll bring 548 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions to the table against the Cougars. He played a lot early in the season as he and McGloin split time. Post-Paterno, though, his role has been fairly limited.
