(New York) -- The much-anticipated unveilings should be done by the end of the first quarter between Penn State and Syracuse.

The Nittany Lions and Orange will finally reveal their starting quarterbacks tomorrow at MetLife Stadium.

For Penn State, it'll be either junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson or freshman Christian Hackenberg. Syracuse will trot out either Oklahoma transfer Drew Allen or sophomore Terrell Hunt.

Who starts might not be who finishes, and Nittany Lions coach Bill O'Brien and first-year Orange coach Scott Shafer have each suggested they could play both of their quarterbacks in Game 1.

But there will be no chance to ease in the newbies in tough nonconference opener.
