Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Two

College football is rolling, and that means there are plenty of former Penn State football players taking the field for their respective squads

While Penn State went 1-0 for the second time this season, former Penn State football players were in action across the nation. As teams begin to look toward week three, here’s a rundown of what happened to those who used to call Happy Valley home this past week.

Will Levis, Kentucky

Levis and No. 20 Kentucky continued their winning ways this weekend by upsetting No. 12 Florida. Levis put together a strong performance with 202 passing yards and one touchdown. However, the former Penn State quarterback also rushed for -12 yards and threw an interception, but in the end, it wouldn’t matter for the Wildcats, as they improved to 2-0. From the looks of it, Levis had some fun, too.

Levis and Kentucky should have an easier matchup this Saturday with a game at home against Youngstown State.

Noah Cain, LSU

After a difficult loss against Florida State, Cain and the Tigers ran all over Georgia Southern this weekend. The former Penn Stater rushed for 51 yards and a touchdown as LSU put up 65 points. The win over the Jaguars marks Cain’s second straight game with a touchdown, while the running back tries to revitalize his NCAA career.

Cain and the Tigers stay at home against Mississippi State next week at 6 p.m. while the Bulldogs try to stay undefeated.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (OH)

Hippenhammer put together a good performance on Saturday, as Miami (OH) beat Robert Morris for its first win of the season. Hippenhammer showed out, recording 52 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the RedHawks.

Miami will have a tough matchup next week when it takes on last year’s national title contender Cincinnati at noon

Cam Sullivan-Brown, UMass

It was a rough week for Sullivan-Brown, as his Minutemen fell to 0-2 against Toledo on Saturday. Sullivan-Brown didn’t benefit from a heavy rush game from UMass. Despite leading his team in receiving yards, he only caught three passes for 31 total yards. Former Penn State safety Tyler Rudolph also produced some numbers for the Minutemen, recording two tackles on defense.

UMass will try to bounce back in its home opener against Stony Brook next week Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Daniel George, Akron

Frankly, it was always a long shot for Akron to win its matchup against Big Ten opponent Michigan State. The Spartans took down the Zips easily by a score of 52-0.

While George led his team in receiving yards with 44, Akron fell to 1-1. The Zips aren’t in for an easy ride, either, as their next opponent is No. 15 Tennessee.

Lance Dixon, West Virginia

It’s been a tough start to the season for Dixon and his Mountaineers. After beginning the season with a loss to rival Pitt, West Virginia fell to Kansas 55-42. Dixon played his part on defense, recording seven total tackles.

West Virginia will try to set its season straight on Saturday with a matchup with Towson.
