03/24/13 - 2013 Penn State Pro Day: Matt McGloin, QB (6 7/8, 207) - The Nittany Lions quarterback wasn’t at the NFL Scouting Combine, so he opted to participate in all of the drills, save for the strength lifts. He ran 4.89 and 4.92 seconds in the 40-yard dash. McGloin registered a 28-inch vertical jump, 9-foot broad jump, 4.29 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.00 seconds in the three-cone drill. He was worked out by a Penn State QB coach. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/16/13 - McGloin hopes his smarts get him NFL tryout...McGloin went from a walk-on out of West Scranton High School to the starting quarterback at Penn State and helped lead the Nittany Lions to a 8-4 season in Bill O'Brien's first year as the head coach. Now, all McGloin is hoping for is a chance to get in a NFL camp and prove he belongs. He took the first step on Monday performing in front of representatives from 25 teams at Penn State's pro day. "I thought I did the drills well and ran well," McGloin said. "My mechanics looked good and I threw some nice balls. I am my own worst critic. I just have to be patient and wait it out."
While he believes getting drafted is a long shot, McGloin believes some of his advantages are having a strong arm, his ability to throw the deep ball and having played a season under O'Brien, who brought the New England Patriots offense to Penn State. "I am definitely a cerebral quarterback," McGloin said. "I'll get in the playbook and check in and out of the right plays. My goal is to get in a camp and grasp the system. The feedback has been good. They all have enough film on me and they have seen what I have done in person. It is out of my hands and I have no control over what goes on." - Steve Bennett, The Citizens Voice

Brandon Moseby-Felder had six catches for 129 yards, Zach Zwinak ran for 134 yards and Michael Zordich ran for two touchdowns for the Nittany Lions (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten), who bounced back from a loss to Ohio State. Caleb TerBush passed for 155 yards and a touchdown and Antavian Edison had nine catches for 93 yards and a score for the Boilermakers (3-6, 0-5), who have lost five straight and now will need to win out to become bowl eligible. The pressure was on Purdue coach Danny Hope after athletic director Morgan Burke released a statement earlier in the week saying that the team's performance had kept the Boilermakers from reaching their goals, and that those associated with the program had expected the team to take a step up the postseason ladder. Akeem Hunt's 47-yard return of the opening kickoff and Akeem Shavers' 37-yard run set up a 21-yard field goal by Sam McCartney that gave the Boilermakers a 3-0 lead. It was the first time Penn State had been scored upon in the first quarter all season. - AP Sports
