Jordan Stout Earns Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player Of The Week Honors

Penn State football kicker and punter Jordan Stout has been named this week’s Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player of the Week, as announced by the conference Monday. Minnesota punter Mark Crawford is Stout’s award counterpart.

This is Stout’s second conference accolade of this season. In Penn State’s 16-10 victory over Wisconsin in week one, he notched his first with an all-time punting performance.

In week five’s 24-0 shutout victory against Indiana, Stout punted six times. Four of his attempts landed inside Indiana’s 20-yard line, and he averaged 46.3 yards per attempt. His season average of 48.46 yards now ranks seventh in the country.

Stout also converted all of his extra point attempts and booted a 50-yard field goal, the fourth 50+ make of his career. His career total of 50-yard field goals is now second-most in program history, just two behind Chris Bahr.

Penn State’s touchback titan added to his legend by recording four more touchbacks on five kickoffs. Yet another stellar kickoff showing further bolstered the Nittany Lions’ number one kickoff defense ranking, still allowing zero yards from opposing kick returners on the season.

No. 4 Penn State will go on the road this weekend against No. 3 Iowa at 4 p.m. EST on Saturday, October 10. That contest will be broadcast on FOX.
