Joe Paterno tied Eddie Robinson's Division I record with his 408th win Saturday night as Penn State beat Northwestern 34-24. Silas Redd ran for 164 yards and a touchdown, Matt McGloin threw for 192 yards and two scores, and the Nittany Lions clamped down in the second half to give their storied coach another milestone victory. Paterno will try to move ahead of Robinson, the Grambling State legend, next week when the Nittany Lions (7-1, 4-0 Big Ten) host Illinois. That starts a tough stretch that also includes a home game against Nebraska before trips to Ohio State and Wisconsin. Paterno still has a long way to go to catch John Gagliardi of Division III St. John's, Minn. (481 and counting), the only other coach with more wins, but this was another big notch for an icon in his 46th season leading the Nittany Lions.
