Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Jordan Stout has been named the Big Ten (co) Special Teams Player of the Week.
Of course, you should all be stopping me, because it’s the second time in five weeks that Stout has earned in the honor, picking it up after a tremendous week one punting performance against Wisconsin.
This time, the conference split the award between Stout and Minnesota punter Mark Crawford, presumably to avoid hurting anyone’s feelings.
Stout earned the honor after punting six times for a 46.3-yard average, including two that went 50-plus yards. Four of those six also pinned Indiana inside its own 20-yard line.
Additionally, he recorded touchbacks on four of his five kickoffs, with the other begin fair caught at the 1-yard line.
Lastly, Stout drilled a 50-yard field goal attempt in the fourth quarter, his fourth such kick of as many yards in his Penn State career, trailing only Chris Bahr with six.
Stout, who has done absolutely everything on special teams for Penn State this year, has to be considered one of the favorites for the Ray Guy award as we near the second half of the season.
