Penn State held its first football practice of training camp on Monday, marking the start of the second season under coach Bill O'Brien.
The Nittany Lions will have 29 practices before opening their season on Aug. 31 against Syracuse at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Two-a-day sessions in full pads are expected to begin Saturday.
The team's starting quarterback remains the biggest question mark for O'Brien. Freshman five-star recruit Christian Hackenberg and junior-college transfer Tyler Ferguson will compete for the job.
O'Brien, who led Penn State to an 8-4 record last season, has said he hopes to name a starter by midway through camp.
