Penn State plays in-state rival Pitt this week, and per usual, there has been a little back-and-forth through the media ahead of the contest. Former quarterback Trace McSorley is here to set the record straight.
Earlier this week, in an interview with the Tribune-Review, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi was asked about freshman running back Vincent David and how he’d respond to playing in a “packed” Beaver Stadium.
Narduzzi said that after the first play, it would be “just like” playing anywhere else.
Former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley seems to disagree. He took to Twitter Saturday morning with a message for Narduzzi and the Panthers.

Beaver Stadium is certainly one of the loudest places to play in the nation. But you can understand why Narduzzi doesn’t want to make it seem like his players are going to have a problem performing in a tough environment.
Penn State and Pitt have one of the better in-state rivalry series in the country. The Nittany Lions lead the all-time series 52-43-4.
This year’s game will kick off at Noon ET and it will be broadcast on ABC.
