Fifth year offensive lineman Tom Devenney is our focus for day 78 on our countdown to Akron versus Penn State. After redshirting in 2013, Devenney appeared in two games in 2014 (UMass and Temple). The 6’1’’, 309 lb lineman did not see any action in 2015, but appeared in last season’s regular season finale against Michigan State. He also earned the Outstanding Run-On Award at the team’s awards banquet following the year.
In the realm of interesting facts, Devenney was born three days after the 35-31 win over Illinois in 1994 that preserved the undefeated year for Kerry Collins, Ki-Jana Carter and Co.
He might not see much game action in his final year, but Devenney is certainly an important part of the team. 78 days, everyone!
