Only Matt McGloin Until Penn State Football

Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2012 starting quarterback.


Redshirt senior Matt McGloin was named the 2012 starter by Head Coach Bill O'Brien on June 1, and this announcement has sparked some debate between both fans and non-fans of the program ever since. Heralded by many within the program for his leadership this off season, time will show how much McGloin has grown both as a signal caller and on-field leader for this program.

In 2011, McGloin started the final five games of the regular season for the Nittany Lions, playing in all twelve regular games. He was 125 of 231 for 1,571 yards and a completion percentage of 54.1, with eight touchdowns and five interceptions.

His RS sophomore year , 2010 was an up-and-down one for McGloin, with high highs (the comeback victory against Northwestern, and the shootout versus Michigan, to name just two) and low lows (his team-record five interception performance versus Florida in the bowl game). He started five of the last six games that season, and finished the year at 118 of 215 for 1,548 yards and a completion percentage of 54.9. He threw fourteen touchdowns versus nine interceptions.

McGloin has had seven career 200 yard passing games, good for 10th all time in the school's record books; he is also the only quarterback in Penn State history to have had two consecutive 300-yard passing games (versus Indiana and Michigan State, in 2010).

And, hey, did you know he was a walk-on from Scranton?
