Penn State Hockey Forward Liam Folkes Makes NCAA’s Top Plays Of The Week

Liam Folkes managed to score from behind the goal line during No. 1 Penn State hockey’s sweep of Michigan State over the weekend, so naturally he made the NCAA’s Top Plays of the Week.

The Nittany Lions are back at Pegula this weekend for their second series with Ohio State.
