NittanyNation takes a look at nine things -- matchups, players, positions and game aspects -- fans should keep track of for Saturday's season opener against Ohio:

1. Tyler Tettleton vs. PSU linebackers
If Tettleton has an open running lane, he's going to take off. The Ohio signal-caller averaged about 50 rushing yards a game last year, and he'll take whatever defenses give him. The secondary could have everyone covered but, if the linebackers don't stand their ground, Tettleton's going to frustrate with some first-down scampers. This isn't a challenge Penn State's linebackers have to worry about often, and it's been an overlooked matchup this week.
