Joe Paterno gets testy whenever Penn State's eight consecutive losses to Michigan come up, so he can't feel good about having a fumbling concern with tailback Austin Scott entering the Big Ten opener Saturday in Ann Arbor, Mich. (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET). Scott fumbled twice on his first three carries in a 45-24 win over Buffalo, leaving the door open for fellow fifth-year senior Rodney Kinlaw. Kinlaw gained a career-high 129 yards on 23 carries. So who starts at Michigan? "I don't think anybody is the No. 1 tailback when you have two kids that are as equal as they are," Paterno said. Scott's leash has to be getting shorter, since he's now fumbled four times this season.
