Will the mighty Penn St. Nittany Lions defense be able to shut down the thunderous Houston Cougars offense? That was the primary question coming into the TicketCity Bowl. So far, Case Keenum and company have answered in the negative, with touchdown buddy Patrick Edwards snaring only the third aerial score PSU has given up all season -- on the opening drive, no less.
The 40-yard touchdown is the 19th Edwards has grabbed from Keenum this year. It's the latest mark in one of the most impressive passing years and careers in college football history, but let's not get greedy, fans of pyrotechnics. Expect the Nittany Lions to adjust to facing a rare (for them) spread offense as Devon Still starts gaining steam up front.
