In his second year as the Penn State Head football coach, Bill O'Brien has a lot of focus on the offensive side of the ball, inparticular the quarterback position. The competition has heated up between sophomore Steven Bench and fromer College of the Sequoias signal caller Tyler Ferguson. Both quarterbacks are competing this spring to prove they are worthy of being the starting quarterback once the season starts.

In order for the young quarterbacks to be successful, O'Brien will look to have veteran wide receiver Allen Robinson to contribute more this season after leading the Nittany Lions in targets. This season O'Brien has expanded the playbook and will look to do more creative things with the tight ends and wide receivers since they are more experienced in the offense.
