Penn State Football QB1 to WR1? Must-See Touchdown Connection From Final Open Practice Before WVU Showdown (VIDEO)

With Penn State Football set to host West Virginia Saturday night to kick off the Nittany Lions’ 2023 season, Penn State hosted its last media viewing session for practice Wednesday night.

In a video captured by Seth Engle of the Daily Collegian during the media viewing session of practice, expected starting quarterback Drew Allar made an impressive throw to expected WR1 KeAndre Lambert-Smith in the side of the endzone.

After the catch, Penn State head coach James Franklin can be heard yelling “Nice”, obviously impressed by the great throw and catch.


Why Hasn’t Penn State Football Named Starting QB?

While Franklin has not officially named any starters for the 2023 season, Allar and Lambert-Smith are widely expected to both start on offense for the Nittany Lions.

In 2022, Allar and Lambert-Smith were the only players on the 2023 roster to attempt a pass, with Allar playing in 10 games as the backup quarterback to Sean Clifford.

Lambert-Smith led the Nittany Lions in 2022 among players returning for 2023 in both catches and receiving yards and tied for the lead in touchdowns with returning tight end Theo Johnson.

Penn State fans can expect to see Allar and Lambert-Smith hookup a lot this season as Penn State tries to sort through the depth chart behind Lambert-Smith at wide receiver.
