WATCH: Penn State back-up QB Tommy Stevens runs for a 21 yard touchdown
The Penn State Nittany Lions went to their bag of tricks early against the Maryland Terrapins and it worked out perfectly.
On first and ten, starting quarterback Trace McSorley handed the ball off to back-up signal caller Tommy Stevens on a jet sweep. Then, Stevens would fake the reverse to running back Saquon Barkley and proceed to take it up the sideline for a 21 yard score.

That is definitely one creative and fun way to utilize your back-up quarterback.
