Transfer Portal Roundup: Week 12

Another week is in the books in college football, folks.

While No. 11 Penn State dominated Rutgers in a 55-10 win, some former Penn Staters shined for their respective teams.

Let’s check in on how Nittany Lion transfers performed across college football this week.

Will Levis, Kentucky

Saturday’s matchup against No. 1 Georgia was always going to be tough for Levis’ Wildcats. To its credit, Kentucky held its own, only losing 16-6 against the nearly unanimous top team in the country.

Levis threw for just over 200 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the loss. He will try to avoid a three-game skid going into bowl season against Louisville at 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 26.

Noah Cain, LSU

Cain excelled for No. 6 LSU on Saturday in a 41-10 win over UAB. The running back put up 76 yards and three touchdowns, the most of any player in the game.

Cain’s monster game brings his season totals to 292 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.

The Tigers are still fighting to reach the College Football Playoff and will have the chance to keep their hopes alive against Texas A&M at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Tyler Rudolph, UMass

UMass continued to struggle in its matchup with Texas A&M on Saturday, but Rudolph didn’t. The defensive back recovered a fumble against the Aggies and led both teams in total tackles and solo tackles, with eight and six, respectively.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (OH)

Hippenhammer’s great season continued against Northern Illinois, as he caught five passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in Miami’s win 29-23 win over the Huskies. This season, the wide receiver has recorded 656 receiving yards and eight touchdowns for the RedHawks.

Miami (OH) will fight to become bowl eligible this week against Ball State at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

Justin Shorter, Florida

It was a tough day for Florida on Saturday, as it fell to Vanderbilt 31-24. Shorter played his part at wide receiver, though, catching eight balls for 106 yards. Shorter combined with Daejon Reynolds for 271 receiving yards, though, it still wasn’t enough to secure a win.
