3 Up, 3 Down: Penn State 35, Illinois 7

By Josh Moyer | ESPN Insider
The good and the bad from Penn State's 35-7 win over Illinois on Saturday:
1. Improved offensive line: Against the best defensive line it's seen so far this season, Penn State played its best game. The Nittany Lions' O-line was able to open holes early and get the running game established. PSU finished with 173 yards on the ground and forced enough push up-front to help Matt McGloin to a pair of rushing TDs.
