The 12 consecutive games with a touchdown passes in a single season ties McSorley with Matt McGloin, who also had 12 straight games in the 2012 season with a touchdown pass. - McSorley set a career mark with four touchdown passes today. He had three TD passes earlier this season at Purdue. - McSorley had his fourth 300-yard passing game of his career, tying him for the school record with four in one season.

His previous high was 335 vs. Minnesota earlier this season. It is the fifth-highest single game passing yardage in the Penn State record books. - McSorley had 389 yards of total offense today, giving him 3,348 this season, which is the Penn State single season record. The previous best mark was 3,215 yards by Matt McGloin (minus-51 yards rushing, 3,266 yards passing) in 2012.
