DOTD: Nittany Lion Catches Pass At Fiesta Bowl

Everyone knows the Nittany Lion is an athletic specimen, but he took it up a notch on Saturday during the Fiesta Bowl.

Washington quarterback Jake Browning’s favorite targets weren’t open, evidently. So, instead of merely throwing the pass away, he tossed a dart to the Penn State legend and part-time wide receiver.

It’s a damn shame our dear Nittany Lion won’t show up on the stat sheet, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. We’d love to see Washington’s mascot pull something like that off.

From one-handed pushups to crowd surfing, there’s not much the Nittany Lion can’t do. He was even inducted into the mascot hall of fame earlier this season.

The real question now is this: can the Nittany Lion play running back?
