Every week, NittanyNation takes a look at five storylines that stand out: What should fans keep an eye on? What's the bigger picture? What might be on display Saturday?

Here are NittanyNation's Week 6 storylines:

1. Could this be Northwestern's best start in 50 years? Northwestern last started 6-0 in 1962 and could match that record with a win over Penn State. Still, October hasn't been kind to the Wildcats. Pat Fitzgerald's team has been just 10-15 over the last six seasons in that month and dropped four of five last season in October.
