University Park, P.A. - Senior quarterback Trace McSorley who has thrown a touch-down pass in 28 straight games with Penn State, the longest active streak in FBS, was the only  unanimous selection among the 10 players named to the Big Ten preseason honors list.

This is the second consecutive year that the two-time captain has earned preseason honors. Last season, McSorley completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 3,570 yards, 28 touchdowns and also rushed for 11 TDs. The twenty-two year old was named second-team all-Big Ten last season.

McSorley enters his final season, holding Penn State career records for completion percentage (61.8), passing efficiency (152.9), passing touchdown (59) and total offense (8,268).

The 10 man pre-season honorees list was selected by the conference's media members.
