McGloin to Start Against Michigan

UPDATE 8:48 PM: On tonight’s Penn State Football Show radio broadcast, JoePa stated that Matt McGloin will be the starter. Jay Paterno later came on and said that Rob Bolden has been cleared to play, but will be a game-time decision. It is important to note that Joe’s segment was taped before Jay’s. Chaos will now begin to ensue.

After replacing freshman Rob Bolden during last week’s game against Minnesota, FightOnState.com is reporting that redshirt sophomore Matt McGloin will start Saturday night’s game against Michigan.

Bolden received a blow to the head during the second quarter and was taken out last Saturday’s 33-21 win. McGloin came in to connect with Derek Moye on two touchdowns, including a 48-yarder on his first collegiate completion.

After failing his first two concussion tests, Bolden finally passed the ImPACT test on Wednesday but took no serious snaps during practice throughout the week, participating in only some warm-up drills and running.

Kevin Newsome will back-up McGloin for the match-up against the Wolverines. He made it back to practice this week after nursing a knee injury. Walk-on Shane McGregor will only be used in an emergency situation. McGloin is believed to be the first walk-on to start a game at quarterback in the Paterno era.
