Slip sliding away

Any doubts that may existed about Penn State are starting to slip away after the Lions' 38-24 win over Illinois on Saturday. But before you reserve those tickets to the Orange Bowl, though, just remember that it doesn't get any easier from here on out. After opening with four of five games at Beaver Stadium, Penn State plays four of its next five on the road. The Lions have to travel to always hostile Wisconsin on Oct. 11 and two weeks later to Ohio State where they haven't won since joining the Big Ten.
