Key will be continuing to run well against tougher competition
Penn State running back Silas Redd is your Big Ten leader in rushing, although he does have a game or two in hand over the rest of the contenders, but it is clear that Penn State has turned to Redd much more in October and have benefitted from it. But take a look at the teams he has put up some solid numbers against this month.
Redd’s streak of 100-yard games started against Indiana, ranked 117th in the nation in rushing defense, and continued against Iowa (68th), Purdue (55th) and Northwestern (80th). In September he faced Alabama (1st), Temple (10th) and Eastern Michigan (57th). In November he will go up against Nebraska (70th), Ohio State (27th) and finish up with Wisconsin (35th). This week he lines up agianst Illinois (18th).

Though Matt McGloin played the full game against Northwestern last week, Joe Paterno remains reluctant to publicly name him the starting quarterback. In fact, the Penn State coach doesn't want to discuss his quarterbacks much at all.
