It wasn’t always pretty… at times in the first half it was even ugly. Still, when it was crunch time, McGloin was an amazing 13-15 in the fourth quarter while leading his team back from an 11 point deficit. He finished with a 68.6% completion rate for 282 yards and two touchdowns, as well as the go-ahead rushing score. When it mattered, McGloin put the Penn State offense on his back and carried them to a win.

HONORABLE MENTION: Zach Zwinak
