STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - His career as a full-time starter now at six games, Christian Hackenberg's freshman season already has reached halftime.
Penn State's 18-year-old quarterback has had more good times than bad while leading the Nittany Lions to a 4-2 record heading into a second bye week at the halfway point. And they'll follow up a 43-40, four-overtime victory over previously undefeated Michigan with an Oct. 26 trip to No. 4 Ohio State.
``I think we were going to (carry momentum) either way,'' Hackenberg said. ``We're really focused as a team. That's a testament to the coaching staff and how we attack each day at practice.
``(The bye week) is even better. We have a couple more days to prepare, get a good game plan and get ready to go to a hostile environment and play a really good football team. I think it's more of a bonus for us.''
