On the road in a sleepy environment, Penn State will be without one of its defensive starters.
Defensive tackle Parker Cothren was not in uniform for Saturday’s noon game at Ross-Ade Stadium and will not play against the Boilermakers. Pennlive’s Joe Hermit captured a photo of Cothren on the sideline before kick off.

It’s unclear if it’s an injury issue for Cothren, who has appeared in last week’s win over Ohio State. Cothren has played in five games this season, and missed the Nittany Lions’ contest against Temple last month.
In five games, Cothren has eight tackles on the season, 1.5 have come for a loss.
