Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Eight

Penn State football, coming off of its bye sitting at No. 7 in the nation, now finds itself at No. 20 after suffering an excruciating nine-overtime loss to Illinois this past Saturday.

Across the country, though, some former Nittany Lions found success with their new teams, while others rested on a well-deserved bye. Here’s a look at former Penn Staters’ most notable performances from the week:

John Petrishen, Pitt

Safety John Petrishen totaled four tackles in Pitt’s 27-17 victory over Clemson. On the season, he’s now racked up 30 total tackles, two sacks, and an interception for the No. 17-ranked Panthers.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (Ohio)

Mac Hippenhammer is in the middle of what will certainly go down as a career year. This past weekend, the redshirt junior wide receiver caught five passes for 57 yards in Miami Ohio’s 24-17 win over Ball State.

Judge Culpepper, Toledo

Judge Culpepper, a former Penn State defensive lineman, recorded only one tackle but also a sack in Toledo’s 34-15 victory over Western Michigan. He’s amassed 31 total tackles, two total sacks, and three quarterback hits so far this year.

Daniel Joesph, NC State

In the Wolfpack’s narrow 31-30 loss to Miami, Daniel Joseph registered a season-high six tackles, including one tackle-for-loss. He’s racked up 21 total tackles and a sack so far this season.

Lance Dixon, West Virginia

Linebacker Lance Dixon totaled three tackles in the Mountaineers’ 29-17 win over TCU. Impressively, 11 of his 18 total tackles this season have come as solo efforts.
