Meanwhile, though, some former Penn Staters were also putting up some big numbers in their new homes. Here’s a closer look at how former Penn State football players performed across college football.
Will Levis, Kentucky
In a huge upset win over No. 10 Florida, Levis didn’t have his best day, but he got the job done. He threw for 87 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Additionally, he added 21 yards on the ground and completed 41.2% of his passes.
John Petrishen, Pitt
This weekend, Pitt had a dominant performance against Georgia Tech and won 52-21. Petrishen accumulated five tackles, two of those being solo, in the outing.
Additionally, he intercepted a pass and brought it all the way back for a touchdown. The perfect pick-six was actually the first interception of Petrishen’s college career.

Hippenhammer had a career day in Miami’s 28-17 win over Carnegie Mellon. He put up eight receptions for a total of 170 yards, which were both career-highs for the wideout. The RedHawks are now 2-3 following the win.
