After entering the transfer portal Wednesday, it didn't take long for Noah Cain to find a new home. The former Nittany Lion running back and Baton Rouge native is headed to LSU.

Cain excelled as a true freshman in 2019, but suffered a season-ending injury in Penn State's 2020 season-opener and couldn't quite get back to his early form in 2021 as the Nittany Lions' rushing attack stalled for much of the year. Cain still ended up as Penn State's second-leading rusher this past season with 350 yards on 106 carries and a team-leading four touchdowns on the ground.
