Penn State vs. Eastern Michigan: Pregame Notes

Greetings from Beaver Stadium. Today, Penn State will take on Eastern Michigan at noon, looking to move to 3-1 on the season after a 14-10 win at Temple last weekend. Some pregame notes for you as we get set for kickoff.

-Curtis Drake is warming up with the wide receivers down on the field. Whether he'll see action remains to be seen. Coach Joe Paterno isn't sure when he'll be able to play, so that's a storyline to keep an eye on today.

-Weather at the moment is mostly cloudy with sun occasionally. There's a slight chance we'll see showers later in the day, but don't them expect to threaten the stadium. '

-Joe Paterno is down on the field for warmups. He said at his Tuesday press conference he hopes to be down on the field this week. He walked into his press conference without a cane, so it looks like he's getting better. The concern is whether he'll be able to get out of the way of a play near the sideline, so we'll see if he's confident enough to stay downstairs come gametime.
