Trace McSorley Grabs Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Week

The honors keep rolling in for Trace McSorley. The redshirt sophomore earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Tuesday following his career performance against Michigan State.

It’s the second time in as many days that McSorley picked up conference recognition. The Ashburn, Va., native was named Rose Bowl Big Ten Player of the Week on Monday. Heading into the Big Ten Championship, McSorley is currently third among all Big Ten quarterbacks with 2,976 passing yards (248.0 average). That’s over 500 yards more than Ohio State’s J.T. Barrett (2,428). He and Barrett are tied for the fewest interceptions thrown by Big Ten starters with just five apiece.

McSorley, who’s tossed 21 touchdowns thus far, is only one away from tying Todd Blackledge for the third all-time on the Penn State single-season record charts. Matt McGloin and Daryll Clark are tied for the program lead with 24 apiece in 2012 and 2009, respectively.
