STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Trace McSorley will start at quarterback for Penn State when the Nittany Lions open against Kent State on Sept. 3.
Coach James Franklin settled on the sophomore after McSorley battled redshirt freshman Tommy Stevens for the job through the spring and summer.
"We're excited what he brings to our offense," Franklin said Wednesday. "I think the biggest thing is he's been the backup quarterback for two years. He has game experience and there's value in that. You've been able to see it already, you're not projecting as much."
