The Drew Allar-era has started faster than Penn State’s coaches and most fans wanted it to.
After taking a low hit late in the first half, Clifford remained in the game until halftime, running for a touchdown and throwing another.
Although he looked to be ok, Clifford ran into the lockerroom shortly after the second half started.
Now, Drew Allar is in at QB.
Penn State fans are excited to see what Allar, a five-star who was the No. 1 QB in the nation according to 247Sports, can do, and him being the No. 2 as a true freshman is a good sign for how he’s performed during camp.
But this is certainly accelerates the process faster than many would have wanted.
