Jordan Stout Named Big Ten Special Teams Player Of The Week

Penn State football kicker and punter Jordan Stout is this week’s Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

The honor comes after Stout averaged 53.9 yards per punt on seven punts in Penn State’s 16-10 win against Wisconsin. That’s the second-highest single-game punting yards average in Penn State football history behind only Ralph Giacomarro, who posted an average of 54.75 yards per punt in 1981 against Syracuse. 

Stout also registered five punts going over 50 yards with a career-long punt of 76 yards. The 76-yard punt was also the third-longest in Penn State history.

In the fourth quarter against Wisconsin, Stout executed a 24-yard field goal to tie the game at 10-10. He did miss an additional field goal and an extra point in the game, though.

This is Stout’s first Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week award in his career. The last time a Nittany Lion acquired this honor was Jahan Dotson on December 14, 2020. 

The 1-0 Nittany Lions will host Ball State on Saturday, September 11, to welcome fans back to Beaver Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m.
