Bolden Named Big Ten Freshman of the Week

At just 18 years old, Penn State’s most recent starting quarterback, Rob Bolden, is getting a lot of love from the Happy Valley folks, but the Big Ten conference has also recognized the freshman’s novel accomplishments.

Just two days removed from leading the Nittany Lions to a 44-14 victory against Youngstown State, Big Ten officials honored Bolden as the Big Ten Freshman of the Week, which is the first time the conference has bestowed such an honor. Michigan State’s running back, LeVon Bell, will share the award with Bolden.

Bolden came to Penn State as a highly touted recruit from Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Prep in Orchard Lake, Mich., and proved his worth Saturday. The slender Bolden tossed two touchdowns and 239 yards during Penn State’s rout of Youngstown.

Bolden’s opening-game performance will go down as the best passing performance by a freshman quarterback in Penn State’s school history. However, he will see his first true test this Saturday when Penn State visits the defending national champions Alabama.

Well that’s more like it. After getting trounced by Iowa last weekend, which snapped a 13-match winning streak, the Nittany Lion wrestlers rallied back with two convincing victories over Michigan State and Michigan this weekend. The first stop of the road trip was in Lansing Friday night where they mauled the Spartans 30-9. Then they headed back to Ann Arbor for a 28-13 beating of the Wolverines.
