Penn State vs. Eastern Michigan: Matt McGloin Throws First Touchdown

Penn State will set up shop on its own 8-yardline after a 50-yard punt by Eastern Michigan.

Rob Bolden is still the quarterback for the Nittany Lions on this drive. He hits Derek Moye for eight yards on second down, by Eastern Michigan plugs Silas Redd's hole on fourth down and Penn State goes three-and-out.

As Penn State gets set to begin this defensive series, Michael Mauti is still out. That guy can't seem to stay healthy for the Lions. Fortunately for the Lions, they force a three-and-out without him, and they'll get the ball back with 10:56 left in the half.

Malcolm Willis partially blocks the Eastern Michigan punt, holding it to just 31-yards. Penn State will take over with great field position.

Matthew McGloin is taking over at quarterback for Penn State. Rob Bolden was 6-8 for 44 yards on his first three drives of the day. We'll see how McGloin matches that.

McGloin hits his first pass for 18 yards to Derek Moye. He follows it up with another completion to Andrew Szczerba and is looking almost as sharp as Bolden early here.

On his third throw, McGloin hits Joe Suhey down the sideline for Penn State's first passing touchdown of the season, a 27-yard pass play. It was a beautiful play action fake followed by a dart from McGloin.

Penn State drive summary: 5 plays, 63 yards, 2:27 time of possession. With 8:19 left in the half, it's Penn State 10, Eastern Michigan 0.
