Christian Hackenberg Penn State
Posted Aug 31, 2013

Penn State's true freshman quarterback met the media after leading the Nittany Lions to an opening win over Syracuse. See his entire PC right here.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It is difficult to tell which was more surprising at MetLife Stadium here Saturday.

• The fact that true freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw for 278 yards and two scores to lead Penn State to a 23-17 win over Syracuse. Or…

• The fact that PSU coach Bill O’Brien allowed the rookie to talk to the crush of media afterward.

It was the first media availability for a Nittany Lion quarterback since Matt McGloin spoke after leading the team to a win over Wisconsin in the 2012 season-finale.

See what Hackenberg had to say and how he conducted himself in the video above.
