Bolden to start; Beachum, Drake not dressed to play

Rob Bolden was the first player to emerge from Penn State's team bus when it arrived at Beaver Stadium Saturday afternoon, meaning the sophomore will start at quarterback for the sixth straight game. Junior Matt McGloin, who has outplayed Bolden statistically the last three games, was the second player off the bus.

Rob Bolden was the first player to emerge from Penn State's team bus when it arrived at Beaver Stadium Saturday afternoon, meaning the sophomore will start at quarterback for the sixth straight game. Junior Matt McGloin, who has outplayed Bolden statistically the last three games, was the second player off the bus.

It appears second-string running back Brandon Beachum, who has missed the last two games with a sprained right foot, will be out again as he was not wearing a uniform or pads when the team entered the stadium. Wide receiver Curtis Drake, who has been in and out of the lineup, was also not wearing a uniform or pads.

Running back Stephfon Green, who has not played yet this season after he was suspended for preseason practices and the early part of the season, was carrying his pads and jersey. He practiced with the second and third teams this week.
