Transfer Portal Roundup: Week 13

It was a productive “Rivalry Week” for former Penn Staters around college football. While some players are headed home for the winter, others are now getting ready to suit up for conference championship games next week.

Here’s how some former Penn State football players performed during week 13 of the college football season.

Will Levis, Kentucky

Levis completed 11-of-19 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns as Kentucky took down in-state rival Louisville 26-13.

Levis was seen by many as a dark horse Heisman candidate early in the season but didn’t live up to those lofty expectations. He was nonetheless effective, throwing 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions with 2,406 yards in 11 games as Kentucky posted a respectable 7-5 record.

Daniel George, Akron

Wideout Daniel George continued his strong 2022 campaign in Akron’s 44-12 win over Northern Illinois. George posted seven receptions for 96 yards and snagged his first touchdown of the season.

George totaled 60 catches for 693 yards in 11 games for the Zips this season.

Noah Cain, LSU

It was a rough night on Saturday for LSU, as Texas A&M dealt the Tigers a backbreaking loss that all but ended their College Football Playoff hopes. Noah Cain wasn’t part of the team’s poor performance, though, logging 73 total yards on 13 touches, including 48 rushing yards.

Cain will play in his first-ever conference championship game when LSU takes on Georgia next week.

Cam Sullivan-Brown, UMass

Cam Sullivan-Brown continued his breakout campaign with six catches for 48 yards, but UMass was dominated by Army in a 44-7 loss.

Sullivan-Brown started 10 games for UMass this season and totaled 373 receiving yards.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (Ohio)

Hippenhammer was Miami of Ohio’s leading receiver in the RedHawks’ come-from-behind win over Ball State. The former Penn Stater snagged six passes for 70 yards as Miami won its sixth game and reached bowl eligibility. 

Hippenhammer finished the regular season with 726 receiving yards, just short of his 2021 total of 786. 

Cole Brevard, Purdue 

Defensive tackle Cole Brevard was responsible for one tackle in Purdue’s division-clinching win over Indiana on Saturday. Brevard, who appeared in all 12 games for the Boilermakers, will head to Indianapolis next week to take on Michigan in the Big Ten championship game. 

DJ Brown, Notre Dame

Defensive back DJ Brown tailed four tackles, including one solo tackle, but his efforts weren’t enough as Notre Dame fell to USC 38-27.
