STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - After going from Penn State's opening-day starter at running back to injured player to reserve during the 2012 season, Bill Belton could have been frustrated. Perhaps he thought there was little or no chance that it would work out for him with the Nittany Lions. Still, Belton remained optimistic with the help of his parents and the guy calling the shots, coach Bill O'Brien, who told him what he needed to do to improve at what was, for Belton, a relatively new position.

Saturday at 6 p.m., Beaver Stadium, State College Records: Central Florida, 2-0. Penn State, 2-0. TV/Radio: Big Ten Network; WNTP-AM (990), WNPV-AM (1440). Coaches: Central Florida, George O'Leary (17th season, 114-88); Penn State, Bill O'Brien (second season, 10-4). Series: The two teams met in 2002 and 2004 with Penn State winning both times, but the victories were vacated by NCAA sanctions. Three things to watch Penn State's execution on third down must be more precise than its first two games, when the Nittany Lions converted just two of 26 third-down opportunities, the worst in the nation.

STATE COLLEGE - Not long after John Cappelletti had his jersey retired in a halftime ceremony, his famed No. 22 willed its way into the end zone. Saturday was a memorable afternoon for the double deuce at Beaver Stadium. Cappelletti, the only Heisman Trophy winner in Penn State history, became the first player in the program to have his number retired. And Akeel Lynch, who wears No. 22, ran for 108 yards and a touchdown in his collegiate debut. Cappelletti spoke to the Nittany Lions after their 45-7 win over Eastern Michigan, and had a special message for Lynch.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State coach Bill O'Brien seemed to be in a jovial mood during his weekly radio show this week, giving lighthearted answers to questioners asking about his team's struggles on third down, why he didn't use the shotgun more and rushing against a stacked defense. But as the hour wore on Thursday night and the questions about last Saturday's opening-day shortcomings continued, O'Brien's answers became shorter and less humorous. Finally, the coach had something to say. "I've been asked about third-down percentage, hot reads, the shotgun, running into a nine-man front," he said.

CHICAGO - Penn State will begin its public sale of single-game tickets on Tuesday, but a new policy is sure to disappoint those who are not fans of its Mid-American Conference opponents. Those planning to buy tickets to the Oct. 12 game against Michigan or the Nov. 23 contest against Nebraska must buy the same number of tickets to another game. The Michigan game is paired with the Sept. 7 home opener against Eastern Michigan, while the Nebraska contest requires a ticket purchase for the Kent State game on Sept.

THE FLYERS have a familiar face returning to scout the goaltending crop in Europe. Former Flyers goaltender Antero Niittymaki, who recently retired after a season in the Finnish Elite League, was hired by the team on Wednesday to not only identify European goaltending prospects but skaters as well. "You don't need to spend much time with Antero to get a feel for his knowledge of all aspects of the game, and what it takes to play at the highest level," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said.
