Trace McSorley is heating up for Penn State in the Rose Bowl.
The Nittany Lions QB hit Chris Godwin in the back of the end zone for a 30-yard touchdown Monday to draw Penn State to within a touchdown of USC, making it 20-14 in the second quarter. But it was actually much longer — McSorley released the ball from the 41-yard line and Godwin caught it near the back of the end zone in Pasadena, Calif.

Officials reviewed the play since Godwin appeared to juggle it as he went out of bounds, but it stood. The Nittany Lions trailed 13-0 after the first quarter, but the offense has finally come alive.
McSorley hit Mike Gesicki on a jump-pass of sorts for another touchdown late in the second quarter.
