After every Penn State game this season, Daily News beat writer Bernard Fernandez will provide Nittany Line Plus with his observations and analysis. Here is his take on Saturday's jinx-busting 13-3 home victory over Iowa. Did you notice . . .  That Penn State's defense has now given up just 10 points or fewer in five of the first six games? The last time the Nittany Lions did that was in 1978. That quarterback Matt McGloin was on the field for six Penn State offensive possessions and 51 plays, to two possessions and 20 plays for starter Rob Bolden?

Penn State coach Joe Paterno is rarely satisfied, but he seems content with the state of his Nittany Lions at the midpoint of the season. With six regular-season games down and six to go, Paterno likes where No. 14 Penn State (5-1, 1-1) is heading into today's 3:30 p.m. matchup against Minnesota (4-2, 2-1) at Beaver Stadium. Paterno was particularly encouraged by the effort at practice this week, and said there was a "little different attitude" to start the second half of the season.

MINNEAPOLIS - For Evan Royster , the slow and tortuous climb to the top of Penn State's career rushing chart has turned a little frustrating. Royster gained 62 yards on 10 carries Saturday and scored a touchdown in the Nittany Lions' 33-21 victory over Minnesota. He moved into second place on the all-time list with 3,368 yards and now stands 31 yards away from breaking Curt Warner's school record, a number he should reach Saturday at home against Michigan. "It's not like my first concern right now," Royster said.

D'Anton Lynn is a 20-year-old starting cornerback for Penn State, but his father can still remember the days when D'Anton used to follow him around when he was an NFL player, meeting people such as John Elway and Terrell Davis, and doing whatever he could do. "He had all kinds of jobs - water boy, ball boy," Anthony Lynn, now the running backs coach for the New York Jets, recalled in a recent interview. "He was kind of like a little mascot. " Despite a football background that included seven seasons with Denver and San Francisco and a pro coaching career starting in 2000, Lynn wanted his son to enjoy a well-rounded experience in sports as he grew up, and whichever sports he chose to pursue would be solely up to him. The younger Lynn played golf and tennis.

STATE COLLEGE - Members of the Penn State defense understandably exude a lot of confidence. The unit has been solid all season and posted its best effort Saturday in a 20-0 victory over Minnesota. "This game really was a game where from the start, we were going to dominate this team," linebacker Navorro Bowman said. "That's the type of attitude we came out here with. We weren't going to let this team get anything. We weren't going to give them anything. The outcome is what we expected.

TAMPA, Fla. - Sophomore quarterback Kevin Newsome did not make the Florida trip with the Nittany Lions, all but assuring that he will transfer from Penn State before the spring semester. Asked about Newsome earlier in the week, coach Joe Paterno said he had not talked to him about his plans. Earlier in the season, when asked why Newsome didn't play more, Paterno suggested that he didn't have a good grasp of the offense. Newsome, the backup to Daryll Clark in 2009, was part of a three-way competition at quarterback with sophomore Matt McGloin and freshman Rob Bolden in the preseason.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Devon Still sat at the podium at Beaver Stadium on Tuesday and preached, as a team captain often will do, that Penn State was treating Saturday's game against Iowa as it would any other game. But after his defense shut down a Hawkeyes offense that entered the game second in the Big Ten in scoring offense, the standout defensive tackle told the truth. The Nittany Lions hadn't treated this game like any other. And who could blame them? Iowa had beaten Penn State three straight times and eight of the last nine.

DALLAS - Penn State punter-kicker Anthony Fera encountered a travel hiccup on his way home to Texas for the holidays after a flight delay in State College, Pa., caused him to miss his connection in Philadelphia. No problem. Fera just went into the city and stayed overnight with his aunt, one of more than a dozen relatives of his from in and around Philadelphia. "We had a good visit," said Fera, a sophomore from the Houston suburb of Cypress. "I got a cheesesteak. That was nice.

STATE COLLEGE - Stephon Morris certainly made the most of Penn State's last press conference of the regular season. A thoughtful Morris opened up to the media about just how emotional Saturday's Senior Day clash with Wisconsin will be for him, and also how he persuaded some players to stay at Penn State upon hearing whispers they wanted to leave. As for Senior Day, the senior cornerback knows he'll be misty-eyed when he walks on the field with his family. "We had a lot of adversity in our life.

JOHN BUTLER, Penn State's new defensive backfield coach, has yet to coach a game for the Nittany Lions, but he helped make history by recruiting the first player of the Bill O'Brien era, in the process making something of a last-minute interception. Jordan Lucas, a native of New Rochelle, N.Y., who played this past season for Worcester Academy in Worcester, Mass., had been scheduled to enroll at Temple yesterday, but he held off when he heard Penn State, a school he had been interested in all along, was prepared to offer him a grant-in-aid.

DALLAS - With each day that passes, it becomes increasingly likely that Rob Bolden will start at quarterback for Penn State in Monday's TicketCity Bowl against Houston. Starter Matt McGloin did not practice again Thursday and his status remains up in the air. The redshirt junior from Scranton has not practiced since Dec. 17, when he suffered a concussion and a seizure from a post-practice scuffle with wide receiver Curtis Drake , a West Catholic sophomore who will not play Monday.

Penn State has seen some quarterbacks this season who dented its defense with a deft combination of running and throwing, but the Nittany Lions haven't seen anyone quite like Wisconsin's Russell Wilson. "Wilson? Wow," Lions interim head coach Tom Bradley said of the fifth-year senior, who leads the nation in passing efficiency. "Any time you're completing 80 percent of your passes, 26 touchdowns, three interceptions . . . he's about as efficient a quarterback as I've seen in a long time," Bradley added.

ATHLETES ARE conditioned to tolerate a certain amount of pain. Baseball players occasionally are beaned, rodeo riders get thrown from bucking bulls and broncos. And football players . . . well, they usually leave the field at least a little bruised and sore. It's the price they expect to pay for doing what they do. But when a player finds himself being strapped onto a gurney, unable to feel his arms and with his head and neck immobilized, he can't help but imagine that this injury might go beyond whatever discomfort he has experienced before.
