Even after Penn State's bowl game, the collegiate careers of fifth-year seniors Trace McSorley and Amani Oruwariye won't be quite finished. The pair of Nittany Lion stars accepted invitations to the Reese's Senior Bowl, held annually in Mobile, Alabama.

McSorley holds every major passing and offensive record in Penn State history, and most recently broke the mark for wins by a starting quarterback with his 30th career victory when the Nittany Lions beat Rutgers last weekend. While he still has two games remaining, his legacy will forever be cemented as the quarterback who brought Penn State back to national prominence.

Oruwariye was an All-Big Ten Second Team selection in 2017, and is likely to garner post-season honors again. So far in 2018, he leads the Lions with 11 passes defended and is tied for the team lead in interceptions with three. Many mock NFL drafts have him going in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
