Here is a quick glance at the most important Penn State offensive players to keep an eye on come Saturday evening:

Sean Clifford (Junior, QB)


He led the unit both in the air and on the ground at Indiana, throwing for 238 yards and three TD's while also rushing 17 times for 119 and another score. Clifford entered this season already ninth all-time in program history for rushing yards by a QB.

Jahan Dotson (Junior, WR)


Dotson started all 13 games last year when he finished fifth in the Big Ten for most yards per reception (18.1). He made four catches for 94 yards in the opener, including a timely 60-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Michal Menet (Senior, C)


The All-Big Ten performer in the middle stands 6-foot-4 and also 300 pounds. He's made 25 career starts and played in 37 college games.


Devyn Ford (Sophomore, RB)


With star running back Journey Brown currently out receiving treatment for a medical condition, backup Noah Cain made the start at IU but was injured after just three carries. That brought in Devyn Ford, who ultimately finished with 20 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown.
