STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – The second half of games belong to Penn State. Too bad for the Nittany Lions the opening 30 minutes count, too.

Sluggish starts have left Penn State (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten) playing catch-up the last few weeks and in big road games. While the defense has pitched second-half shutouts each of the last three weeks, safety Nick Sukay isn't about to gloss over the shortcomings, particularly in the first quarter.

Cards exercise option

on Pujols for 2011

The St. Louis Cardinals exercised a $16 million club option for 2011 with three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols.

The 30-year-old Pujols led the National League with 42 home runs and won his first league RBI title with 118, and tied Matt Holliday for the team lead with a .312 batting average.

Pujols topped 400 homers last season and set a franchise record with his 39th career multihomer game.

If there was still any doubt the days of Southern California dominating the Pac-10 are over – at least for the near future – there's proof positive this week.

USC is a 91/2-point underdog at Stanford on Saturday.

It's just the third time since 2004 that USC has been an underdog, according to the odds maker RJ Bell of Pregame.com. The last time was when USC played at Oregon in 2007. The Trojans were three-point underdogs to the Ducks that day and lost 24-17 in quarterback Mark Sanchez's third career start. He was replacing an injured John David Booty.
