Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Seven

A week after a brutal 23-20 road loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes, Penn State rested up with a much-needed bye week to help get ready for the second half of the season.

While the Nittany Lions quietly rested, some former Penn State stars had big games to help lead their new teams to victory. Here’s a look at how a few of them performed this weekend:

Justin Shorter, Florida

Shorter had the best game of his career on Saturday for the Florida Gators. He totaled six receptions for 113 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the Gators’ 49-42 loss to the LSU Tigers.

Shorter also had the catch of the week on his first touchdown when he caught a 42-yard hail mary at the end of the half from Florida quarterback Emory Jones.

Shorter also had a touchdown midway through the third quarter, but it wasn’t enough to come back and beat the Tigers.

Will Levis, Kentucky

The Wildcats quarterback had quite the challenge this weekend going up against the top-ranked team and defense in the country in the Georgia Bulldogs. The Bulldogs proved to be too much for the Wildcats and defeated Kentucky 30-13.

Levis had 192 passing yards and two touchdowns but couldn’t keep the game close for Kentucky to pull off a comeback.

Zach Kuntz, Old Dominion

Kuntz had a nice day for the Monarchs and totaled 114 yards on eight receptions in a 43-20 loss to Western Kentucky. The sophomore tight end is having a solid season for a struggling 1-6 Old Dominion while averaging 10.7 yards per catch.

John Petrishen, Pitt

Petrishen had a solid day in Pitt’s 28-7 victory over Virginia Tech. The linebacker had three tackles and half a tackle for loss to help the Panthers improve to 5-1 and a No. 23 ranking in the AP Top 25 Poll.

CJ Holmes, Kent State

Holmes contributed five tackles for Kent State in their 64-31 loss to Western Michigan. The safety now has 23 total tackles on the season.

Judge Culpepper, Toledo

The sophomore defensive tackle had four tackles and two pass deflections in a 26-23 overtime loss to Central Michigan. Culpepper now has 29 tackles on the season.
