Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley put together an all-time great half against Georgia State on Saturday thanks to his arm.
In the first half, the redshirt junior gunslinger not only led the Nittany Lions to a 35-0 lead going into halftime, but also threw for 258 yards. That total is the most by a Penn State quarterback in a single half.
Trace McSorley’s 258 passing yards is a #PennState record for a half, breaking Daryll Clark’s mark from 2009.

McSorley completed 14 of his 19 throws while tossing three touchdowns. One of the scores went to a fellow Heisman Trophy hopeful in running back Saquon Barkley, who took it 85 yards into the end zone.

Sure, McSorley may be doing this against an inferior opponent, but regardless, 258 passing yards against any team is impressive. The Nittany Lions even added 100 rushing yards to its total offense, out-gaining the Panthers by more than 200 (358-153).
Not to be outdone by his arm, McSorley even added a score with his legs.
