The Penn State defense was absolutely suffocating against Purdue. All three levels of the defense were dominating, but the front-seven in particular was fearsome. When all was said and done and the Nittany Lions were wrapping up their 35-7 win, they had racked up 10 total sacks, just one off of the all-time record. Two of the players who played the biggest roles in racking up those sacks, Shaka Toney and Micah Parsons, earned their spots on this week's Pro Football Focus defensive team.

Parsons ended with 5 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and a sack. Toney ended with 4 total tackles, 3 tackles for loss, and 3 sacks.

Parsons and Toney join Sean Clifford, Rasheed Walker, and Nick Bowers on the Week Six Pro Football Focus Big Ten team.
