The Nittany Lions started their season with a 52-0 win over Akron a week ago and followed that by beating Pitt 33-14 for the once-heated rival's first visit to State College in almost two decades.

McSorley said he remembered the interception previous year at Heinz Field that abruptly stopped the Nittany Lions' comeback and enabled Pitt to clinch a 42-39 win, adding that his team "gave ourselves a chance to win and didn't finish it out".

Trace McSorley played in four state finals in high school and the Big Ten title game and the Rose Bowl previous year. "This was just like beating Akron for us".

Before the season opener vs. Akron, head coach James Franklin called Nelson "as talented an offensive tackle as there is in the country". When asked if that in itself was some form of poking the team they just beat, he disagreed.

Quarterback Max Browne - former USC starter - got Hall the ball right behind the end zone, and Penn State was ready. The Nittany Lions have been great at home, going 6-0-1 against the spread in their last seven home games.


The Pittsburgh Panthers (1-0) are coming from a 28-21 win over the Youngstown State Penguins last week. In two career outings against Stanford, White has taken command of Penn State's back line, helping to stifle the Cardinal's typically strong attack.

The Lions dropped one spot to No. 5 in this week's AP and USA Today Coaches polls following their 33-14 win over Pitt.

"It's one game at time", he said. I think our schedule is set through 2026 or something like that.

"I've been saying this for two years, so you guys can interpret it however you want", Franklin said. Trace McSorley also looked great, throwing for 280 yards and two touchdowns on 18-of-25 passing. It was telling for the Panthers and Narduzzi, who often points out that teams make their biggest strides between Week 1 and Week 2. The Pitt defense gave up a number of long pass plays allowing YSU to climb back in and send the game to overtime. He finished with 183 all-purpose yards: 88 on 14 carries, 45 on four receptions and 50 on two kickoff returns. "If you can get a fast start, come out, be productive, get points on the board as an offense, force three-and-outs and turnovers and chaos on the defensive side of the ball, then you'll be much better off throughout the rest of the game", McSorely said.
