UNIVERSITY PARK -- Penn State head football coach Bill O'Brien told reporters Tuesday he will likely name a starting quarterback by the end of this week.

O'Brien is choosing between junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson and true freshman Christian Hackenberg as to who will start Penn State's August 31 opener versus Syracuse at MetLife Stadium outside of New York City.

“I’d say it’s pretty close right now,” O’Brien said of the competition. “Whatever we do we’ll do what’s best for the team. We have two really talented guys there.

"They are two of the best young quarterbacks I've ever coached."
