Q: I think that prior to the start of the season, most fans and sports writers believed as I did that Penn State was in for losses to Alabama, Iowa and Ohio State. Now that we're approaching the mid-point of the season, do you see any other teams on the schedule that could trip up PSU? Also, which team do you think will get the distinction of giving JoePa his 400th win?

MUSSELMAN: The way Penn State played at Iowa Saturday night, there is no such thing as a gimme win the rest of the season. The Lions were disorganized and overwhelmed yet again by the Hawkeyes. And yes, I do see teams that could beat Penn State besides the three you mentioned. Remember Michigan, that team that dominated the Lions for so long until last year? Also, I think Michigan State will be a very difficult game. I think Joe's 400th win will come at home Nov. 6 against Northwestern.
