No big deal, just Jordan Stout earning Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week for the second-straight week and fourth time this season. 

Stout earned conference-wide recognition after a punting masterclass in Penn State's 28-0 win over Rutgers. Stout knocked five punts inside the 10 against Rutgers and six of his eight punts landed inside the 20. He hit two punts of 50+ yards.

Handling kick-off duties once again as well, Stout pinned the Scarlet Knights deep in their own territory all game long, with Rutgers' average starting field position at its own 18-yard line. 

Stout ranks ninth in the country, and second in the Big Ten, with a 46.47 punt average. The senior specialist is also a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award for the nation's top punter.
