McGloin Honored by Big Ten
Matt McGloin Penn State

Posted Sep 27, 2011


Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week for his 14 of 17, 220-yard, three touchdown performance against Eastern Michigan.

A junior, McGloin shares his first career conference honor with Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson.

McGloin entered the game early in the second quarter with Penn State leading, 3-0. He led the Nittany Lions to three touchdown drives on his four possessions and left the game in the third period with Penn State leading 31-0. On McGloin's fourth possession, he completed a pass to running back Michael Zordich, but he fumbled at the EMU 1-yard line and ball went out of the end zone for touchback.

The former West Scranton High School standout connected with nine different receivers among his 14 completions. He threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to running back Joe Suhey to give Penn State a 10-0 lead. He then connected with wideout Derek Moye on five and 20-yard scoring strikes. The three touchdown passes were second-highest in McGloin's career, trailing only the four vs. Northwestern last season.

McGloin delivered the sixth 200-yard passing game of his career (all in last 10 games), finishing with 220 yards, completing 82.3 percent of his passes. His six 200-yard games are tied for 10th place in Penn State history with John Hufnagel and Mike McQueary, the Nittany Lions' wide receivers coach.
