Penn State Football Racks Up Weekly Awards After White Out Rout Over Michigan

No. 2 Penn State dominated then-No. 19 Michigan 42-13 Saturday night in front of a record crowd at Beaver Stadium under White Out conditions and several Penn Staters on either side of the ball received various weekly awards for their strong performances under the lights.

On offense, Trace McSorley and Saquon Barkley both added to their already-impressive trophy cases with various new awards.

McSorley won the Rose Bowl Big Ten Player Of The Week Award and also took the Walter Camp National Player Of The Week Award as well as the Davey O’Brien Quarterback of the Week award after accumulating 358 total yards of offense and four touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Penn State’s star tailback was named the Big Ten’s Offensive Player Of The Week and also earned himself a spot on the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll after totaling 176 yards of offense and three scores.

On defense, Jason Cabinda, Marcus Allen, and Grant Haley all received recognition for their efforts in shutting down Michigan’s offense.

Cabinda, the senior middle linebacker, was named one of the Big Ten’s Co-Defensive Players Of The Week. He also grabbed the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week once again this season after recording 13 tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble against Michigan.

Behind him, Marcus Allen and Grant Haley were announced as two of 13 finalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, which is annually given to the best defensive back in college football.

James Franklin and the Nittany Lions return to action this Saturday to take on No. 6 Ohio State in a heavyweight battle at the Horseshoe. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and the game will be televised nationally on FOX.
