 Christian Hackenberg had to hold on to his secret that he was Penn State's starting quarterback tighter than his playbook.
After a debut to remember, there's no doubt which QB is leading offense for the immediate future at Happy Valley.
Hackenberg is the man.
He dazzled coach Bill O'Brien enough in training camp to wrest the job away from Tyler Ferguson and earn the starting spot last week against Syracuse. O'Brien refused to publicly name the starter and keep fans in the dark until pretty much the moment the 18-year-old Hackenberg led the Nittany Lions on to the field at MetLife Stadium.
Then, Hackenberg went out and delivered, completing 22 of 31 for 278 yards, with a pair of 50-yard touchdown passes in the second half, as the Nittany Lions won, 23-17.
