Penn State Dominates Maryland On Senior DayPosted: Updated:
On Saturday, Penn State dominated Big 10 opponent Maryland 38-3 on Senior Day. The 21 seniors were honored before the beginning of the game, and played the final home game of their college career. The Class of 2019 finished with a 25-3 record in Beaver Stadium over the course of four years.
Penn State’s all time winningest quarterback Trace McSorley had a truly impressive senior sendoff with 230 passing yards, 64 rushing yards and was responsible for three touchdowns. He was given a curtain call in the fourth quarter, after setting the school’s career completion record with 703 yards. McSorley is one of five players in FBS this season to have 2,000 passing yards and 700 rushing yards, joining Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray, Virginia’s Bryce Perkins, Ohio University’s Nathan Rourke and Syracuse’s Eric Dungey.
Defensive was stifling on Saturday, holding Maryland to under 300 yards. Penn State also dominated in tackles for loss, only surrendering two negative plays on offense while dropping the Terrapins behind the line 15 times – its most in a Big Ten game since 2007 against Michigan (15 TFL).
