OVERALL: OK, so it wasn't exactly an explosive opening-game showing. But after the past few years, a win is a win.
OFFENSE: Lions won't beat many opponents making that many mistakes.
DEFENSE: Solid all-around effort, especially given the number of opportunities the PSU offense provided for South Florida.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Rookie K Kevin Kelly was definitely a bright spot.
COACHING: Once again, the suspect effort by the offense counterbalances a good job by the defense.
INTANGIBLES: Despite many mistakes, you never got the sense the Lions were in trouble.
OTHER GUYS: Bulls could have easily rolled over but did not.
OFFICIALS: Roughing the punter personal foul seemed rough to us. Other than that, a good game.
CROWD: Less than 100,000 (99,235) for the opener? Come on.
The Ultimate PSU Package for the Ultimate PSU Fan: Under $100!
