Notebook (12-15): McSorley placed on IR

Welcome to our daily Nittany Notebook. This post will be updated frequently throughout the day with news, notes and sometimes entertaining info. So be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with Penn State football and athletics, plus other sports of interest in central PA.

Update: 7:4 2p.m.

**Former Penn State cornerback Trent Gordon has found a new home. He entered the transfer portal last month and reportedly has chosen Arkansas to continue his playing career. Gordon, a former 3-star recruit, was a redshirt sophomore who appeared in three games this season for the Lions. He appeared in 10 games last season and four as a true freshman in 2018.

Update: 4:50 p.m.

**Penn State product Trace McSorley was placed on injured reserve today by the Baltimore Ravens, after suffering a knee sprain Monday night against the Cleveland Browns.

McSorley entered Monday’s game after starting QB Lamar Jackson was injured. But after McSorley also went down, Jackson came back in and led the Ravens to a 47-42 win.

Update: 4:30 p.m.

**The Penn State-Virginia Tech home-and-home series has been canceled.

PSU was supposed to play at Virginia Tech this season, but the game was canceled because of the coronavirus. The Nittany Lions were supposed to then host the Hokies in 2025 for the return game.

But since Penn State did not travel to Blacksburg this year, Virginia Tech apparently will not be making the trip to State College. That came from AD Whit Babcock, according to this Virginia Tech beat writer.

Update: 3 p.m.

**Pat Freiermuth was named the top tight end in the Big Ten as the league announced offensive awards and all-conference teams Tuesday.

Freiermuth was PSU’s lone first-team all-conference selection, getting picked by the coaches. He was second-team in the media voting. And he was named winner of the Kwalick-Clark Award as the league’s top tight end.

There were Penn State’s other all-conference selections, from the PSU release:
