STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Linebacker Mike Hull says Penn State's defensive players not only have to get on the same page, they have to turn it as well.
''I don't think we need to simplify anything, we just need to get better as a defense,'' Hull said about last week's 63-14 loss at Ohio State. ''We have to clean up some of the things we're doing because a lot of the guys aren't on the same page like you saw.''
The Nittany Lions (4-3) have found that the best way to forget one game is to play another. With a victory over Illinois (3-4) on Saturday, they would be 6-1 after losses through what will be Bill O'Brien's 20th game as coach.
''We're very excited to get back out there,'' Hull said. ''Once you have a loss like that, you want to get that bad taste out of your mouth.''
