WATCH: Daequan Hardy Makes Penn State History

Penn State Nittany Lions cornerback Daequan Hardy (25) November 12, 2022 David Hague/NSN

UNIVERSITY PARK– Daequan Hardy had never returned a punt at Penn State before today. 

All he did was return his first punt return in almost five years of college football for a 56-yard touchdown. 

In the second half, Hardy struck again, this time with a 69-yard punt return.

No Penn State player had returned two punts for touchdowns before today. Hardy seemed to be an unlikley candidate to be the first, but it’s happened. 

Watch both returns here.
