STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- 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.Were excited what he brings to our offense, Franklin said Wednesday.

Youve been able to see it already, youre not projecting as much.McSorley will make his first career start at home against Kent State.Its a lot of weight off my shoulders, McSorley said.
