Christian Hackenberg Voted Capital One Impact Performer of the Week

After his four total touchdowns against Michigan, Christian Hackenberg won this week’s ESPN Capital One Impact Performance.

The award is voted on by fans every week, and Hackenberg won this week with 41 percent of the 35,991 votes cast. Hackenberg beat out Heisman frontrunner Marcus Mariota of Oregon, who received 32 percent of the votes, along with Army’s Terry Baggett and Louisiana-Monroe’s Isaiah Newsome, who received 20 percent and seven percent of the vote, respectively.

Hackenberg went 23-for-44 with 305 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in Penn State’s four overtime win over Michigan last week. The true freshman also added a touchdown on the ground with 27 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and send it into overtime.

The Capital One Impact Performance is part of the Capital One Cup, an annual award that is given out to the best men’s and women’s athletic programs in Division I. Last year, Penn State women’s athletics came in fifth in the Captial One Cup, while its men’s teams came in a tie for 23rd.
