Q: Is Saturday's game a bigger game for Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor or Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark? What do you think?
Sam Stelley, State College
MUSSELMAN: I think the game is bigger for Clark, because he is an Ohio native and a senior and this is his last shot at beating the Buckeyes. He was knocked out of last year's game in Columbus, Ohio, with a concussion and didn't get to finish. On top of that, Clark needs a quality win against a quality opponent to cement his legacy as one of the Nittany Lions' better quarterbacks. The much-maligned Pryor is 0-1 against Penn State, but he is just a sophomore, so he has at least one more crack at the Lions, maybe two. The former Pennsylvania high school star from Jeannette chose Ohio State over Penn State two years ago, so there will be an incredible amount of pressure on Pryor to produce Saturday. I would expect the crowd at Beaver Stadium to boo him unmercifully when he first appears on the field during pre-game warm-ups.
