Penn State uses spring to install new offense, find new QB

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) The competition between Trace McSorley and Tommy Stevens to run Penn State's revamped offense now moves to its next phase.

New offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead has spent the past month trying to lift confidence levels and install a new scheme after two seasons of lackluster offense by the Nittany Lions.

"He's got a system that I believe in that I think made sense for our team right now," Penn State coach James Franklin said. "It's a combination of what Joe was doing (as head coach at Fordham) but I also think it's a combination of what we're returning now. It's a beautiful marriage at the right time."
