Bowman the man

Navorro Bowman had a breakout performance in Penn State's win over Temple Saturday. The redshirt sophomore, who's been in and now out of coach Joe Paterno's doghouse, recorded 11 tackles, three sacks, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble and an interception. Whew. Those numbers are LaVar Arrington-esque (Maybe even better. Don't tell LaVar. Of course, it was against Temple).

We're expecting Bowman to be honored as Big Ten defensive player of the week. So let's get that announcement out of the way now.
