Penn State senior QB Matt McGloin is ready to battle QB Braxton Miller and the Ohio State Buckeyes. The two best teams in the Big Ten conference are pitted to play each other this Saturday night. Despite their dominance on the field, both teams are ineligible for post season play because of NCAA sanctions dubbing this marquee match-up the Probation Bowl.  Even though Ohio State is 8-0 and ranked 9th in the country, Penn State is the hottest team in the Big 10 thanks to head coach Bill O’Brien and a much improved senior QB Matt McGloin. After a devastating 0-2 start, Penn State has quickly silenced its critics by reeling off five straight wins in unprecedented fashion.  First year head coach Bill O’Brien has his high octane offense in full speed. The Nittany Lions have come out of the gates fast boasting a combined 66-0 first quarter score against all opponents and 170-69 score during the five-game winning stretch.  In O’Brien fashion, he turned QB Matt McGloin from one of the confer...

Rival Rewind is glad Braxton is ok, Paul is home, and ND will lose

Michigan has the unique position of having three big rivals. Most teams only have one rival to get up for, but year-in and year-out, Michigan has three.
