As far as grand finales go, Trace McSorley had a pretty good day. In his final game at Beaver Stadium, McSorley played lights out as the Nittany Lions closed out the regular season on a high with a 38-3 win over Maryland.

While the praise has never been lost on McSorley, Saturday’s home finale provided many one more celebratory piece letting the quarterback know what he meant to the program.

After all the tears have dried from the emotional night, however, Penn State has one more contest left to play, and a number of possible outcomes awaiting. Some of the uncertainty hinges on the outcome of Saturday’s Big Ten Championship between No. 6 Ohio State and No. 21 Northwestern and the rest of Championship Saturday.

The uncertainty surrounding where the Nittany Lions will end up has created equal uncertainty regarding ticket sales.
