Bolden to start against Eastern Michigan


Sophomore Rob Bolden was the first player to emerge from Penn State's team bus upon arrival at Beaver Stadium on Saturday morning, meaning he will start at quarterback for the fourth straight game. Junior quarterback Matt McGloin was right behind him. Bolden and McGloin are expected to split time under center yet again today.

Coach Joe Paterno arrived a few minutes before the team in a Jeep. He was walking with the aid of a cane. 

Wide receiver Curtis Drake came off of the bus fully dressed in uniform. His status for today's game is unknown.

Running back Brandon Beachum was wearing a protective boot on his right foot, which he sprained during a goal-line drill at practice on Tuesday. He won't play today but might play against Indiana next week.
