Friday, November 16th, 2018

Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley will be chasing another school record and the No. 16 Nittany Lions can put themselves in position for a New Year's Day bowl when they visit Rutgers for the Scarlet Knights' final home game of an awful season. McSorley will become the winningest quarterback in Penn State history if the Nittany Lions (7-3, 4-3 Big Ten, No. 14 CFP) send Rutgers (1-9, 0-7) to its 10th straight loss on Saturday. The win would be McSorley's 30th as a starter, moving the senior ahead of Todd Blackledge (1980-82) and Tony Sacca (1988-91).
