So there it is, the Penn State season in all its ugliness.
Here again, I feel that Penn State's offense is actually playing better than their season averages indicate. They made tremendous improvement after the bye week when Matt McGloin took over. Florida has a very good defense, but I'm not so sure the advantage is as significant as the chart indicates.
Two things stick out at me. Florida is an undisciplined team that commits a lot of penalties. They are also not very good on third downs while Penn State has been surprisingly good at getting off the field on third down. So if Penn State can limit the big plays and force them into taking eight or ten plays to move down the field, the Gators will hopefully shoot themselves in the foot.
