Penn State’s Jordan Stout Named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week

Not only did Penn State senior Jordan Stout excel in nailing 50-yard field goals and pinning Michigan inside its 10-yard line, he even completed his first ever pass attempt in an all-around performance at Beaver Stadium Saturday.

For his efforts, Stout was named the Week 11 Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week — his conference-leading third time earning the honor.

Stout’s day began early against Michigan, throwing a perfect 18-yard pass to sophomore Curtis Jacobs to surprise the Wolverines’ defense and pick up a first down. He ended the drive with a 42-yard field goal — his first of three on the day.

While Stout missed a 43-yard field goal in the swirling wind, he also connected on field goals of 31 and 52 yards to keep the Nittany Lions locked in a close game.

Stout’s punting also helped influence the flow of the game, forcing the Wolverines into long fields on multiple occasions. He punted four times, pinning the Wolverines inside their own 20 all four times — inside their 10 twice. His punting average was 51 yards with a long of 58 yards.

It’s been a prolific season for Stout thus far, ranking second in the Big Ten in punting average at 47 yards. He leads the conference in 50 plus yard punts (22) while he ranks fourth in punts downed inside the 20 (25) and third in long punt (76 yards). He’s attempted a conference-high 22 field goals this season, connecting on 16 with two field goals over 50 yards.

Stout was announced as a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award earlier this season, the honor given to college football’s top punter.
