STATE COLLEGE - It went down in the box score as a 1-yard run, but it was arguably the best individual play made against Penn State's defense all of last season. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller pulled back a handoff to fake out a defensive end and most of Beaver Stadium, side-stepped a few would-be tacklers and leaped into the end zone during his team's 12-point victory last Oct. 27. A year later, Penn State will get another crack at stopping No. 5 in scarlet and gray, who orchestrates a Buckeye offense that averages 45.0 points and 493.1 yards per game.

It was the type of game that Penn State fans will talk about for years. Perhaps a million of them will say they were among the 107,884 at Beaver Stadium on a gorgeous mid-October "whiteout" night in Happy Valley. But those are the long-range effects of the Nittany Lions' thrilling, four-overtime, 43-40 victory over 18th-ranked Michigan on Saturday night. The short-range effects were that the Lions could tell the college football world that even with their shortened roster and some inconsistent play at times, they have the heart and moxie to keep fighting their way out of tough spots.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - On the first play of the second half, Zach Zwinak fumbled the football over to Michigan's Frank Clark, who ran it in for a touchdown. Zwinak didn't touch the ball again Saturday night in Penn State's 43-40 quadruple overtime victory over Michigan, so Bill Belton entered the fray. Belton stepped up at the end of the fourth quarter as coach Bill O'Brien opted for a heavier run game. By the fourth overtime, Penn State was down three points and facing a fourth and 1. O'Brien said he was tired of trading field goals with the Wolverines.

Taylor Lewan knows the atmosphere Saturday night at Beaver Stadium will be electric and that the noise from the sellout crowd of more than 106,000 will make his ears ring. However, even though he'll be wearing the uniform of visiting Michigan, the all-American offensive tackle is excited about the opportunity to compete against Penn State in such a setting. "Sometimes we'll be standing face to face [with a teammate] and I won't be able to hear myself think or hear you talk," Lewan said Monday at a press conference in Ann Arbor, Mich.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Allen Robinson was a late bloomer in high school, having grown in size and skill after most of the major colleges, including Michigan, decided to pass on making the wide receiver an offer when he played in the Detroit suburb of Orchard Lake, Mich. "They really didn't have too much interest in me, I would say," Robinson said this week. Penn State saw enough of Robinson during its successful recruitment of highly regarded quarterback Rob Bolden, Robinson's teammate at St. Mary's Prep in Orchard Lake, to eventually make the receiver an offer.

Penn State coach Bill O'Brien made it perfectly clear Tuesday that he would not talk about his team's loss to Indiana, no matter how nicely reporters asked him. O'Brien said the focus was on 18th-ranked Michigan, the Nittany Lions' opponent Saturday at Beaver Stadium, and he said it a lot - using a form of the word "focus" about 10 times during his weekly teleconference, and a few more times on the Big Ten coaches' call. "Indiana is over," the coach said. "It's in the rearview mirror.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - When one sees Christian Hackenberg changing plays at the line of scrimmage and dodging ferocious pass rushers and completing a pass in a small window, it's hard to believe that he's 18 years old and a veteran of just five college football games. The Penn State freshman got a taste of his first-ever Big Ten road game Saturday and threw 55 passes, a school record, but wound up on the short end of a 44-24 count against Indiana. Hackenberg, who broke Kerry Collins' mark of 54 attempts against Brigham Young in 1992, had career highs for completions (30)
