DOTD: Tyler Davis Still Clutch As Blue Band Plays Defense

Tyler Davis has faced all sorts of pressure and the distractions that come with it in his two years at Penn State.

Whether it be a field goal to tie the game at the end of regulation against Minnesota or a crucial kick late in the game at Indiana.

In his two seasons, he’s missed all of two field goals — both because of blocks — nailing 24 of the 26 kicks he’s taken.

On Tuesday, the former soccer player faced a different challenge — knocking home a field goal surrounded by the Blue Band blasting in full force.

Davis, reliable as always, drove the kick straight through the uprights.

The Nittany Lions will be back in action Saturday against Rutgers, and might have to use Davis’ clutch leg (eh, probably not).
