Penn State Football’s Nick Singleton And Jake Pinegar Earn Weekly Big Ten Awards

Penn State true freshman running back Nick Singleton and veteran kicker Jake Pinegar have been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week and Special Teams Player of the Week, respectively, following Penn State’s blowout win over Maryland.

This is the third time Singleton has earned the weekly honor. He previously won it after his breakout performance against Ohio and then following the team’s win over Auburn.

Singleton rushed for 122 yards and made his way into the end zone twice in Saturday’s win over the Terrapins. He currently holds the program record for most rushing touchdowns by a freshman with 10, and he still has a few more games to go. The previous record was eight, which was held by Noah Cain.

Pinegar converted all three of his field goals, including a 50-yard attempt, and tallied three extra points. The 50-yarder tied his career-long that he set last week at Indiana.

The duo helped the Nittany Lions improve to 8-2 on the year with just two games remaining. Penn State will travel to Rutgers this weekend to take on the Scarlet Knights at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 19.
