With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- As an incoming freshman, Penn State safety Marcus Allen figured his transition to college football would be gradual.Then he lowered his shoulder against bulldozing 240-pound teammate Zach Zwinak in a preseason practice and Penn State coaches realized immediately they could deploy the gutsy rookie as a weapon in the box. A few weeks later, he was creeping to the line to pop Ohio States equally-vicious Ezekiel Elliott.I felt as though if I could hit Zwinak, I could hit anybody. Thats a truckload, said Allen, now a junior. Ezekiel Elliott, one of the best running backs out there. So having good contact with him gave me more confidence that I could play in this league.The Nittany Lions (2-2, 0-1 Big Ten) will need more of that from Allen and fellow safety Malik Golden against Minnesota (3-0, 0-0 Big Ten) and its two-headed rushing attack as Penn State grasps for momentum in a season thats soured quickly thanks to a long list of injuries.Now without all of its starting linebackers, Penn State has allowed 326 rushing yards or more in two of its last three games, is coming off an embarrassing loss to No. 4 Michigan and faces the conferences fifth-best rushing offense on Saturday.As youngsters in front of them have whiffed again and again, Allen and Golden have combined for 57 tackles. Theyll have their eyes on Minnesotas Rodney Smith and Kobe McCrary whove helped the Gophers rush for just over 228 yards per game.You talk about missing tackles, well, typically your linebackers are the unit that make the majority of your tackles, Penn State coach James Franklin said. And weve lost our three starters.THIRD DOWN WOES: Linebackers Nyeem Wartman-White, Brandon Bell and Jason Cabinda entered the season with 57 combined starts. Wartman-White is out for the season and Bell and Cabinda are out for this game.Their replacements -- Manny Bowen, Jake Cooper and former walk-on Brandon Smith -- have just seven combined.

I know as a defensive coach you cant look at one or two guys and take them away and make them go to their third option and beat you. I think that helps you on offense. Im pleased where the offense is at.CORNERBACK CONCERN: Minnesota starting cornerback KiAnte Hardin remains suspended along with three others, including backup cornerback Ray Buford for a violation of team rules. Sophomore Antonio Shenault has slid into the starting lineup next to senior Jalen Myrick, but another reserve cornerback, Coney Durr, is out for this game with an unspecified injury.The defense has been vulnerable at times to long gains, allowing 228.7 yards passing per game, second-most in the Big Ten.LIMEGROVER REUNION: The Gophers will reunite with Matt Limegrover, the well-liked former offensive coordinator and offensive line coach who has assumed the latter role at Penn State.
