Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley was named the Walter Camp Offensive National Player of the Week following his four-touchdown performance Saturday night.

McSorley threw for 282 yards and one touchdown and ran for 76 yards and three more scores in the No. 2 Nittany Lions’ 42-13 drubbing of Michigan at Beaver Stadium.

McSorley was 17-of-26 through the air with an interception in the first quarter. But he found Saquon Barkley — who had three touchdowns of his own — for a 42-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach.

“He ran the ball well, he threw the ball well,” James Franklin said of McSorley. “When you play that style of defense and they’ve had success against everybody, you have to be able and willing to hit the go balls, the fade balls, the inside fade by number two and typically, people can’t hit them enough to make them pay for playing that style of defense. Tonight, we were able to do that. In my opinion, it was the biggest difference in the game.”
