Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Five

Here in Happy Valley, the Nittany Lions had another huge weekend. James Franklin’s squad shut out Indiana and stayed put at No. 4 in the AP Top 25 Poll.

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.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (Ohio)

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.

C.J. Holmes, Kent State

Holmes added four more tackles to his stat line in Kent State’s win over Bowling Green Saturday. He now has 19 total tackles so far in the 2021 season.

Daniel Joseph, NC State

After a massive win last week, NC State and Daniel Joesph kept it rolling with a 34-27 victory over LA Tech. Individually, Joesph had five tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble. The sack and forced fumble were his firsts of the season.

Zach Kuntz, Old Dominion

Even in the loss to UTEP, Kuntz put up eight receptions for a total of 54 yards. The eight receptions were a career-high for Kuntz, and he now has 24 catches on the season.

Lance Dixon, West Virginia

In his stellar outing against Texas Tech that resulted in a 23-20 loss, Dixon finished with a career-high 12 tackles.

Shane Simmons, Marshall

Although Marshall lost to Middle Tennessee 34-28, Simmons had a solid game with four tackles, one being unassisted.
