Jordan Stout does everything for Penn State’s kicking game.

Penn State’s kicker kicks extra points, short-range field goals, long-range field goals and punts.

Along with being 13-18 in field goal attempts, Stout has been more than reliable for the Nittany Lions in the punting game. Pro Football Focus has Stout with a 93.0 overall rating as a punter, which leads the country. This Wednesday, he was named a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award, an honor given annually to college football’s top punter.

Of the 83 punters previously nominated, Stout has made it to the final 10. Of those 10, Stout is one of five from the Big 10. Also among those five is Michigan’s Brad Robbins, who will be Stout’s opposite in Saturday’s game at Beaver Stadium.

In 47 punts this season, Stout averages 46.7 yards, which is the tenth best in the country. Stout’s longest punt of the season was a 76-yarder in Penn State’s season-opening win at Wisconsin.

The Ray Guy Award has existed since 2000. Stout would be the first Nittany Lion ever to win the award and the first Big 10 punter to win it since Ohio State’s B.J. Sander did it in 2003. The most recent recipient was Georgia Tech’s Pressley Harvin, who now punts for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
