**Penn State is getting set to play its final home game, meaning some seniors on the team presumably will be playing for the last time at Beaver Stadium. Now, this year is different, because all of these seniors can get an extra year of eligibility because of the coronavirus.
Still, if the seniors’ names are on this list, there’s a strong chance that this will be their final home game at Penn State. From PSU’s game notes:
- SENIOR DAY: The Nittany Lions will celebrate Senior Day on Saturday. Penn State will honor TE/H Trevor Baker, S Jaquan Brisker, CB Tariq Castro-Fields, OL Will Fries, K/P Carson Landis, WR Isaac Lutz, OL Michal Menet, DT Antonio Shelton, DE Shane Simmons, DE Shaka Toney, S Lamont Wade and WR Benjamin Wilson.
Update: 12:30 p.m.
**Penn State has gotten a commitment today from Harrison Wallace, a 3-star prospect from Alabama who previously had been committed to Duke.
Wallace is a 6-foot-1, 180-pounder from Pike Road High School. He was recruited by PSU receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield.
Maryland, Tennesse, Virginia Tech and Houston were some other schools vying for Wallace.

**Cornerback Joey Porter Jr. was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Monday after helping Penn State’s defense to a dominant performance in a 23-7 win at Rutgers. Porter had seven tackles (5 solo) and one for loss.
This is the second week in a row Penn State has had a player win a Big Ten weekly honor. RB Keyvone Lee was Freshman of the Week last week following his 134-yard game against Michigan.
