Penn State vs. Temple: Rob Bolden Gets The Start For Nittany Lions

PHILADELPHIA-Temple won the toss and decided to defer. Chaz Powell, taken off kick returns last week, was back deep for the Nittany Lions on the return.

Rob Bolden is getting his third straight start at quarterback today for Penn State. Joe Paterno said midweek he will be splitting time with Matthew McGloin once again. We'll see how the drives are split up today.

The Lions' offensive line is getting blown up pretty badly right now. Bolden has had time to complete a couple of passes, but he was just roughed up pretty badly and fumbled on a second down play and SIlas Redd has had no room to run.

The Owls forced a stop on 3rd-and-27 after the fumble. They'll get the ball for the first time with 10:59 to play in the first quarter, with the score still tied 0-0. We'll see how the Penn State defense responds on the first drive.
