Devlin still alive

While Pat Devlin may never supplant Daryll Clark as the starting quarterback this season, he sure made the case Saturday that he's just as able to lead Penn State to greater glory. After the Oregon State game it looked like Devlin was going to be relegated to mop up duty for the rest of the season. But his early insertion and performance against Syracuse at least gave the indication that Devlin may earn some time once Big Ten conference play begins. Devlin worked hard in practice last week and coach Joe Paterno rewarded him. Here's this morning's story on the topic.
