Youngstown State Preview

Youngstown State: 0-0

Series record: 1-0 (Penn State won the last meeting 37-3)

Head coach: Eric Wolford (1st season, 0-0)

Players to watch: WR Dominique Barnes (8 TDs in 2009),  OG Eric Rodemoyer, QB Kurt Hess

Analysis: Penn State’s defense is hungry, and Penguin is the main entree. The 2010 defense is deep at every position and will boast a rotation of six linebackers who all have game experience. Similar to Penn State’s situation, Youngstown will be putting freshman Kurt Hess under center against a Penn State defense that led the Big Ten in sacks last year.

The story all week, though, has been about Penn State’s freshman quarterback Robert Bolden. The four-star recruit has all the potential in the world, but will have no success if the offensive line does not gel. The line, which has a different starter at every position from 2009, faces a stiff defensive line and an experienced group of linebackers. If they can keep kid Bolden, as well as Kevin Newsome and Matt McGloin, on their feet, it should be a good day for the Penn State offense.
