DALLAS --- Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin will not play in Monday's TicketCity Bowl against Houston, interim head coach Tom Bradley said Sunday. Bradley said McGloin did not pass the required concussion tests to be available to play.

Sophomore Rob Bolden will start at quarterback and walk-on Shane McGregor will be second-string, Bradley said.

"Matt McGloin will not play tomorrow," Bradley said in a joint press conference with Houston coach Tony Levine at the Cotton Bowl. 

Bradley said Bolden plays a different style than McGloin and the team has adjusted accordingly. McGloin has not practiced since Dec. 17, when he suffered a seizure and a concussion in a post-practice scuffle with wide receiver Curtis Drake.

"I think he'll be okay," Bradley said of Bolden. "He's had a different amount of time to prepare. He's known he's going to be the starter. Earlier in the year we were bringing him in, bringing him out. That won't be the case tomorrow."

Senior defensive tackle Devon Still, who did not practice Friday or Saturday with a turf toe injury, will play Monday, Bradley said. 

"Devon will be ready to go tomorrow," Bradley said. "Dr. (Wayne) Sebastianelli (the team physician) has been treating him. We expect him to be able to go full go."
