Trace McSorely is gun slinger, and gun slingers make plays. However, they also sprinkle in a few plays you’ll soon want to forget. Tied 49-49 with less than a minute remaining, the Penn State quarterback threw a near interception. Then, he threw an actual interception, setting USC up near field goal range.
The Trojans kicked the field goal to win an instant classic 52-49.
