Nittany Notes: Start It Up

Penn State fans have been asking how the starting lineups are taking shape so far this preseason. While there are shifts and rotations at various positions, there are certain guys who generally see the bulk of first team reps in practice. See how the starting lineups look so far.

Keep in mind that Penn State runs a variety of sets where they substitute positions in and out. For example on a four wide set you may see the extra two wideouts step in for the tight end and fullback. This is why there are more than 11 positions listed on the offensive starting lineup below.

Also, these lineups can change and likely will as they continue to test the abilities and depth at different positions.
