Penn State Blue-White Game: Matt McGloin Leads Offense

One game does not a spring practice make, but Matt McGloin finished his April toils with a solid performance on Saturday, racking up 109 yards of 5-10 passing in his Blue team's 10-0 win in the Blue-White game at Beaver Stadium.

A redshirt junior in the fall, McGloin completed the most passes of any quarterback and threw the game's only touchdown, a 17-yard toss to receiver Brandon Moseby-Felder at the end of the second quarter. On that scoring drive, McGloin was 3/4 for 59 yards and looked sharp in what were some pretty nasty conditions. 

McGloin, of course, is competing primarily with sophomore Robert Bolden but also Kevin Newsome and Paul Jones for the team's starting quarterback job. Head coach Joe Paterno said before the game that McGloin had a good spring and that there's a "99 percent chance" the winner of the competition will be either he or Bolden. His performance Saturday, clearly the best of all the quarterbacks, only reinforces his chances of getting off the bust first come the fall.

Here are some of McGloin's comments in the media room after the game. Pardon the camera shifting mid-video. Had to make way for the TV cameras to exit.
