Trace McSorley becomes Penn State’s all-time leader in touchdowns

trace mcsorley-penn state football-touchdowns record

Another week, another record for Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley.

McSorley — who broke the record for Penn State passing touchdowns last week at Michigan State — became Penn State’s all-time leader in total touchdowns with 66 on Saturday afternoon as he ran in a 20-yard score vs. Rutgers. McSorley entered the game with 50 passing touchdowns and 15 rushing touchdowns.

McSorley added to his lead in the category with a 22-yard passing touchdown to DaeSean Hamilton late in the first half to put Penn State up 14-6 against the Scarlet Knights. A junior, McSorley will likely have a huge lead in touchdowns responsible for by the time he leaves Penn State.

McSorley got to 66 touchdowns in just 39 career games. In 2017, he has 20 passing touchdowns to 8 interceptions and his rushing touchdown was his 9th of the season.

After a sleepy first quarter, Penn State responded with 14 unanswered points against Rutgers in Happy Valley. The No. 14 Nittany Lions are trying to snap a 2-game losing streak and get to 8-2 on the season.
