It looks like backup QB Pat Devlin has left Penn State (Fight on State) with aspirations of heading to a Division 1-A (actually Football Championship Subdivision) program. That frees him up to start for two seasons somewhere else instead of one at Penn State after Daryll Clark runs out of eligibility.

Devlin lost out to Clark in preseason for the #1 job. Clark went on to lead the Nittany Lions to 11-1 record, starting off very strong but cooling later in the year. Devlin got a decent amount of playing time for a backup and took over in the Ohio State game, leading Penn State to the winning touchdown.

Penn State is now two-deep at quarterback for the Rose Bowl with Paul Cianciolo becoming the backup.

So, I guess there was truth to a lot of those rumors about Devlin leaving if he did not win out. There will be some angry people, despite Clark going 11-1 as a starter this season. I am disappointed in this news as Devlin would have been just a snap away from being the #1 QB.
