With the departure of Bill O’Brien from Penn State, many feared that could also lead to the departure of star Freshman Quarterback Christian Hackenberg. For the first time since the hiring of James Franklin, Hackenberg spoke out and said he’s not going anywhere.
Christian Hackenberg hit Kyle Carter with a 15-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Ryan Keiser sealed the win with an end zone interception, lifting Penn State over Illinois 24-17 on Saturday.
Christian Hackenberg threw two touchdown passes in his first college game and the freshman led Penn State to 23-17 victory against Syracuse on Saturday.
