Penn State gave Joe Paterno his 400th career victory the hard way last week.

The Nittany Lions trailed Northwestern, with Bethlehem Liberty quarterback Dan Persa directing the Wildcats' attack, 21-0, only to rally for a 35-21 triumph at Beaver Stadium.

The win was the third in a row for Penn State, and at 6-3 (3-2 Big Ten), the Lions are once again bowl-eligible for the 37th time under Paterno's tutelage. There are seven Big Ten teams now bowl-eligible, so how the Lions fare the next three weeks will determine where they will be bowling.
