Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Three

When Penn State football took care of business Saturday night against Auburn, it captured the eyes of many people across the country, including former Penn State quarterback Will Levis.

Levis was one of a number of transfers who made an impact in week three for their new teams. Here’s a look at the group’s most noteworthy showings:

Will Levis, Kentucky

Coming into the week with Pro Football Focus’ second-highest quarterback rating in college football, Kentucky quarterback Will Levis continued his winning momentum Saturday.

Levis was 23-for-35 with 254 passing yards. Though he threw two interceptions, Levis also threw two touchdowns, leading the Wildcats to beat Chattanooga 28-23 to improve to 3-0 on the season.

Justin Shorter, Florida

Wide receiver Justin Shorter had zero catches in Florida’s heavyweight matchup with No. 1 Alabama. The Gators fell 31-29 and will attempt to rebound against Tennessee next week.

John Petrishen, Pittsburgh

Linebacker John Petrishen was credited with four tackles during Pitt’s 44-42 loss to Western Michigan. Three of them were assisted tackles, while one was a solo tackle.

Zack Kuntz, Old Dominion

Former Penn State tight end Zack Kuntz followed up a strong performance last week by recording four receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown in Old Dominion’s 45-17 loss to Liberty. His touchdown came via an absolute dime from quarterback DJ Mack Jr.

Judge Culpepper, Toledo

Defensive lineman Judge Culpepper made eight tackles in Toledo’s 22-6 loss to Colorado State. The performance tripled his season total, going from four to 12 tackles through the first three games.

Lance Dixon, West Virginia

Linebacker Lance Dixon picked up three tackles in the Mountaineers’ 27-21 upset victory over No. 15 Virginia Tech on Saturday. This doubled his total to six tackles on the season, too.
