McSorley says it's 'too early' to call PSU-Maryland a rivalry
Trace McSorley isn’t quite ready to call Saturday’s game with Maryland a rivalry. Not yet.
During a media conference call on Tuesday, the Penn State quarterback said the game is still too young to be considered a rivalry.
Penn State QB Trace McSorley said on teleconference that it's still "too early" to call it a rivalry with Maryland despite two close games.

After a few close bouts between the Nittany Lions and the Terrapins, it’s probably likely that Maryland players and fans would disagree. With both teams present in each other’s recruiting grounds, it’s hard to believe that there isn’t a little bit of hatred beginning to surface in both locker rooms.
In 2014, Maryland beat Penn State 20-19 at Beaver Stadium when kicker Brad Craddock nailed a 43-yard field goal with :51 remaining in the game. If you remember, that was the same game when Terrapins team captains refused to shake hands with their PSU counterparts before the game:
Last year, Maryland fell to Penn State 31-30.
This should be an interesting contest on Saturday as both teams are coming off of big wins last week. Penn State needed overtime to get a thrilling win over Minnesota at home while Maryland pummeled Purdue 50-7.
Kickoff is scheduled for noon and the game will air on BTN.
