UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Sounding dispirited and grimly determined, Penn State quarterback John Sacca said yesterday that there is a "very strong possibility" he will no longer be with the undefeated Nittany Lions when they take the field against Rutgers on Saturday night.Sacca, a fourth-year junior, said that if he quits the team, he also would leave the university and try to resume his football career elsewhere, even though he would be unable to transfer to another Division I-A school."I doubt that I'll be at practice [today]

Sometimes, Joe Paterno says, a coach has to make seat-of-the-pants decisions based on the ebb and flow of a game.So when Tony Sacca's performance ebbed in each of Penn State's last two games -- against Alabama and West Virginia -- the junior quarterback ended up with his seat on the bench.In each game, senior backup Tom Bill played efficiently enough to help steer the Nittany Lions (6-2) to their fifth and sixth straight wins. Last Saturday, Bill was in the West Virginia game for State's last 24 points.

Joe Paterno picked Penn State's starting quarterback yesterday, opting for experience over potential, and John Sacca over Wally Richardson and Kerry Collins.In his weekly teleconference, Paterno said that neither Richardson nor Collins had done enough in the preseason to unseat Sacca as the No. 1 quarterback going into Penn State's Big Ten debut against Minnesota on Saturday."My thinking was that when we went into preseason, somebody had to beat John out," Paterno said. "I felt John had played well last year, maybe a little better than Kerry.

It took John Sacca four games to get a leg up on his older brother, Tony.In his fourth start at quarterback for Penn State, John, a redshirt ,, sophomore, passed for 303 yards in a 38-24 victory over Rutgers on Saturday night.In 38 career starts at Penn State, Tony, the most prolific passer in school history, never threw for 300 yards in a game.So when the two siblings spoke by phone Monday morning, Tony wanted to know just one thing."He asked how I got to throw so much," said John, who needed 37 passes, with 21 completions, to compile only the third 300-yard passing game in Penn State history.

What registers as controversy for Penn State's Joe Paterno is simply standard operating procedure for Rutgers' Doug Graber.When Paterno went to a two-quarterback shuttle last week at Iowa, it sent ripples through his program, starting with John Sacca's threat to quit the team, a threat he since has retracted.Graber says he has no such headaches at Rutgers, where he's run a quarterback shuttle with Ray Lucas and Bryan Fortay the past two seasons."I have no problem playing two quarterbacks," Graber said, "and around here it's no big deal.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- He doesn't look like Joe Montana. He doesn't play at a place known as Quarterback U. And he never, ever has been called "The Golden Boy."But it's time to place Penn State's Tony Sacca on the short list of Heisman Trophy candidates. After three years of on-again, off-again feuding with a coach who happens to be a legend, Sacca has emerged as a senior star with a future in the NFL.Yesterday, Sacca threw and even blocked Penn State to a 35-13 win over Notre Dame in front of a Beaver Stadium-record crowd of 96,672.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Like clockwork, Rutgers showed up here last night to inspire another Penn State quarterback.A year after John Sacca shredded Rutgers' secondary, Kerry Collins carved up the Scarlet Knights' defense for a 31-7 Penn State win before 92,000 at Beaver Stadium.Not even a relentless, game-long rain could keep Collins from a four-touchdown pass performance in his first start since reclaiming the job this week.He not only revived Penn State's lethargic passing game, he quickly terminated a budding quarterback controversy.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- With a little help from some new Midwestern friends, Penn State christened its Big Ten era in a flash of offensive wizardry yesterday.Who said the Nittany Lions' offense was going to be the homely stepsister in Happy Valley this season?In so many words, Joe Paterno, if you must know. But then he also said that John Sacca had won the quarterback job by the slimmest of margins, too.In a much-celebrated debut, Sacca and Bobby Engram played pitch-and-catch for four touchdowns as the Lions punished Minnesota, 38-20, before 95,387 at Beaver Stadium.

When Maryland hosts Penn State at Memorial Stadium Saturday (1:30 p.m.), sometime during the first half quarterback Tony Sacca will become the all-time Nittany Lions passing yardage leader. Sacca's present total reads 5,358 and the record is 5,382, held by Chuck Fusina (1975-78).Actually, Sacca probably would have the mark in his possession already were it not for a minor screw-up a couple of weeks ago.Penn State was beating up on West Virginia before a record home crowd of 96,445 when sports information director Budd Thalman noted Sacca was just 8 yards shy of Fusina's total in the late going.
