Penn State Vs. Virginia Halftime Score: Nittany Lions On Top, 7-3

Penn State leads Virginia 7-3 at halftime, but there appears to be cause for concern at the quarterback position.

Matt McGloin, who led Penn State to its only touchdown drive in this game so far, went to the locker room favoring his throwing elbow after being hit by a Virginia defender in the second consecutive drive. Freshman quarterback Steven Bench filled in for McGloin, but was sacked on a fourth down attempt in his first play, and unable to get much going in his next drive.

McGloin connected with Kyle Carter for an eight-yard touchdown pass that capped a 17-play, 75-yard drive that took 6:27 off the clock. Virginia didn't get on the board until the second quarter when Drew Jarrett knocked in a 46-yard field goal.

Penn State is looking to avoid going 0-2 for the first time since 2001.
