STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Bill Belton's position on Penn State's depth chart finally matches the number he wears on his uniform.

It's been a difficult journey to that No. 1 spot at tailback. The former utility man in high school, who played quarterback, receiver and defensive back, entered Penn State as a receiver before being asked in January 2012 by coach Bill O'Brien to carry the ball.

With just four yards against Minnesota on Saturday, Belton will become the 41st Penn State player to surpass the 1,000-yard mark for his career. He has 668 yards this season on 128 carries for a per-carry average of 5.2 yards.
