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

Here are NittanyNation's Week 2 storylines for the Cavaliers:

1. It's a family reunion for Michael Rocco. The Virginia quarterback's father played as the backup quarterback on Penn State's 1982 national championship team, and his grandfather was an assistant under Joe Paterno. Rocco has a lot of family in Pennsylvania, and they're all coming down to watch him. Michael grew up as a Penn State fan, and that was his dream school, so it should be a surreal day for the junior. Paterno offered him a grayshirt, not a scholarship, because he had already offered Rob Bolden and Paul Jones. Rocco opted for a scholarship elsewhere.
