Rose Bowl Names Grant Haley Big Ten Player Of The Week

After the Big Ten announced the Nittany Lions won a slew of awards this morning, the Rose Bowl named Grant Haley as the one single Big Ten Player of the Week.

Grant Haley came up with the play of his life, scooping up the ball following Marcus Allen’s block of the Ohio State 45-yard field goal. Haley took the ball 60 yards to the house, out-sprinting a number of Buckeyes along the way and shaking off the kick holder Cameron Johnston in the final five yards.

The return put the Nittany Lions ahead for the first time in the game and ended up being the game-winning play in the 24-21 upset of No. 2 Ohio State. Penn State is now ranked No. 24 in the AP Top-25 — its first ranking since 2011.

Haley was also named Special Teams Player of the Week by the Big Ten earlier today along with Marcus Allen as part of that slew of awards.
