Penn State is sitting at 6-1 and has a trip to 2-4 Northwestern this weekend. Last year, Dan Persa helped the Wildcats jump out to a 21-0 lead before Penn State adjusted to him and came back to win. Later on in the year Persa tore his Achilles, and while he's been back for a few weeks, he hasn't been as elusive as he was last year. But he is still Northwestern's most dangerous offensive player.
