(Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images)One of the top quarterbacks in college football was benched for a series this afternoon. It didn’t work out very well.Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley (and the rest of the Nittany Lions’ offense) is struggling in a major way against Michigan’s defense.It’s Michigan 28, Penn State 0 heading into the fourth quarter.The Nittany Lions just went to backup quarterback Tommy Stevens on the most-recent drive. It ended in a pick-six.The throw was not good.Can see why he took the chance here. White jerseys everywhere, just got unlucky. pic.twitter.com/how3tbgbE8— Tim Ryan (@TheSportsHernia) November 3, 2018It’s now a major blowout.Don’t know what happened there. But Tommy Stevens, in at quarterback for Trace McSorley, threw it directly to Brandon Watson for a pick-six.The rout is on.— Orion Sang (@orion_sang) November 3, 2018McSorley had completed just 5 of 12 passes for 83 yards. He had 12 carries for -6 yards. McSorley is now back in the game.Michigan and Penn State are playing on FOX.last_img read more
