Jordan Stout Once Again Named Big Ten Special Teams Player Of The Week

Penn State punter and kicker Jordan Stout has been named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week, as announced by the conference Monday.

State College’s resident touchback titan once again found himself on the Big Ten’s award list for the third time this season. The previous two honors came against Wisconsin in week one and Indiana in week five.

Over the course of his performance in Penn State’s 21-17 loss against Michigan, Stout punted four times for 204 yards, averaging out to 55 yards per attempt. All four punts landed inside Michigan’s 20-yard line, with one being downed at the one-yard line.

Stout continues to build on his season campaign for the Ray Guy Award, for which he was named a semifinalist earlier in November. Stout’s 47.04-yard average ranks ninth in the country, and has been instrumental in Penn State’s No. 2 spot in the NCAA’s net punting rankings.

On offense, Stout successfully booted three field goals. His kick from 52 yards gave him the second-most 50+ yard field goals in Penn State history, only one behind record-holder Chris Bahr.

As has been the case all season, Stout was dominant from the kicking tee. All five of his kickoffs landed as touchbacks.

The self-proclaimed fourth-down quarterback also found himself in an unexpected stat column Saturday, as his number was called on a first-quarter fake punt play. Stout completed an 18-yard pass to linebacker Curtis Jacobs, making him the first Penn State punter to complete a pass since 1987.

Penn State stays home this weekend, as it host Rutgers in a conference battle inside Beaver Stadium on Saturday at noon.
