Penn State true freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg had quite the successful debut last Saturday in the opening week against Syracuse. Hackenberg made a few mistakes in that performance, but still that’s going to be expected from someone coming right from high school to the collegiate ranks.


This week against Eastern Michigan–Hackenberg’s first appearance at home in Beaver Stadium–it was expected that the youngster would have a little bit easier time settling in to his new role as the PSU QB, and he is.

In the fourth quarter as we speak, the gunslinger is 23-of-32 for 292 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the Lions lead 31-7.

However, this game saw Hackenberg commit the most embarrassing mistake of his young career so far as he dropped back to pass in the first quarter:
