Who should get the nod under center at Penn State to open the season? Cast your vote for Matt McGloin or Rob Bolden here.

Penn State kicks off preseason practice Thursday, with one question foremost in the minds of Nittany Lion fans: Who will be the starting quarterback when PSU opens with Indiana State at Beaver Stadium Sept. 3?

As things stand, the candidates with a realistic shot are:

• Redshirt junior Matt McGloin. McGloin started five games last season, including the final four. He completed 118 of 215 passes for 1,548 yards, 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also rushed for a pair of scores. McGloin is 6-foot-1, 209 pounds and turned 21 last December.
