Clifford Claims Big Ten Weekly Honor

Clifford Claims Big Ten Weekly Honor

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Sophomore quarterback Sean Clifford (Cincinnati, Ohio) has been selected as the Co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week after a stellar outing at Maryland Friday night. He is the first Penn State player to win offensive weekly honors since Miles Sanders against Illinois last year. Clifford is the first Penn State quarterback to claim conference weekly accolades since Trace McSorley in 2016 (Michigan State).

Clifford, who shares offensive honors with Minnesota’s Tanner Morgan, was 26-for-31 for 398 yards and three touchdowns with seven rushes for 54 yards and a touchdown in the 59-0 win at Maryland. The effort was Clifford’s first career 300-yard game and the 40th in Penn State history, while his 398 yards rank third in Penn State single-game history, behind Christian Hackenberg (454; vs. UCF, 2014) and Zack Mills (299, vs. Iowa, 2002). The sophomore tallied 287 passing yards in the first half to break the Penn State record of 258 yards by Trace McSorley against Georgia State in 2017.
