Good Bye

For No. 3-ranked Penn State, this week's bye couldn't have come at a better time. The Nittany Lions are coming off their biggest win in years, a tough three-game stretch involving Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio State and are looking to rest some bumps and bruises. Those injuries include quarterback Daryll Clark, who suffered a concussion against Ohio State (he should be good to go against Iowa next Saturday) and coach Joe Paterno, who's going to have his ailing right leg checked out this morning.

Good Bye

For No. 3-ranked Penn State, this week's bye couldn't have come at a better time. The Nittany Lions are coming off their biggest win in years, a tough three-game stretch involving Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio State and are looking to rest some bumps and bruises. Those injuries include quarterback Daryll Clark, who suffered a concussion against Ohio State (he should be good to go against Iowa next Saturday) and coach Joe Paterno, who's going to have his ailing right leg checked out this morning.

Paterno, by the way, basically said he plans on coming back next season (Yawn) for those (one or two) who may have thought otherwise. Here's this morning's story. At the bottom of the story is a chart mapping out the remaining schedules for the BCS top six. Enjoy.
