Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesLinebacker Mike Hull is playing a lot on passing downs and is one of the Nittany Lions' five best backups.
Everyone knows about starters like Michael Mauti and Matt McGloin, but what about the players behind the scenes, the backups who sometimes have just as big an impact on the game?
NittanyNation decided to look at each game and come up with Penn State's top five backups. If a player started at least once (sorry, C.J. Olaniyan) or garnered enough playing time to be considered a starter (so long, Zach Zwinak), then he wasn't considered for this list.
