Hackenberg, the reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Year, had 2,955 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes last season. Todd Blackledge (1982) and Kerry Collins (1994) are previous Nittany Lions winners of the award.

Penn State also announced that its home opener Sept. 6 against Akron will kick off at noon. Coach James Franklin's Beaver Stadium debut will be broadcast on ABC regionally. The undefeated 1994 team will be honored at halftime.
