STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Christian Hackenberg gets his first chance to show the home fans what they have in Penn State's quarterback of the future.
Hackenberg put up gaudy numbers and notched the win in the Nittany Lions' first game against Syracuse. Now, it's time to see if he can do more of the same in Happy Valley when Penn State plays its home opener Saturday against Eastern Michigan.
Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, who lost the home opener last year to Ohio, has stood by his philosophy that he's a one-quarterback coach. He meant it when he picked Hackenberg over junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson.
Hackenberg, a five-star recruit rated the top pocket passer in the nation, made his coach look like a genius with a fantastic opener en route to a 23-17 win at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
