Awards and schedule news highlight this Tuesday edition.

NCAA Football: Temple at Penn State Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Maybe you’re like me and you haven’t heard of this award before, but it’s still pretty cool that Marcus Allen and Jason Cabinda got named to the watch list for the Lott IMPACT Trophy. Every year, it goes to the college football defensive player who makes the biggest impact for his team both on and off the field.

Nick Aponte, Gerard Arceri, and Chris Sabia were the three Penn State lacrosse players to earn All-America Honorable Mentions. The trio helped the Lions win 12 games to tie a program record and reach the NCAA Tournament for just the fourth time ever.

Defensive end recruit Jayson Oweh and offensive tackle recruit Christian Armstrong will both be taking unofficial visits to the University Park campus according to PennLive. While Oweh is considered a lock to sign with Penn State, Armstrong is expected to commit to Florida State.

Based on recent advertising by FOX, it looks like this year’s Penn State vs. Ohio State football game could be televised by the network. In previous years, FOX only had rights to the Big Ten Championship Game, but it will have some of the conference’s key regular season tilts as well starting in 2017. If all goes according to plan, Penn State vs. Ohio State will be one of the biggest games on the schedule.

Spring sports success! Over the weekend, the Penn State men’s track and field team captured the Big Ten outdoor title on home turf while the women’s lacrosse team defeated James Madison to become one of eight teams remaining in the NCAA Tournament. If the Lions can beat Princeton on Sunday, they’ll reach the national semifinal for the second straight season.

Penn State released the 2017 women’s volleyball schedule, and it features two clashes with defending national champion Stanford in September. The Lions and Cardinals now each hold seven national titles, more than any other women’s volleyball program. That little fact will only add more juice to the start of this autumn’s campaign.

The College Football Playoff National Championship this year will have an extravagant halftime musical performance not unlike that of the Super Bowl. SB Nation proper has some suggestions on who should be the star of the show.
