Penn State dropped a 33-13 homecoming decision to Illinois at Beaver Stadium Saturday. While the contest may be completely forgettable for Nittany Lion fans, we are still tasked with picking a Huddle Up Player of the Game.
Here are the candidates.
LB Chris Colasanti. The senior had a career-high 18 tackles despite playing with a broken right hand.
WR Derek Moye: The redshirt junior had an 80-yard catch for Penn State's only touchdown of the day. It was a career long.
P Anthony Fera: The redshirt freshman averaged 44 yards on six boots. Two of his punts were fumbled, with the Lions recovering each time.
LB Khairi Fortt: The true freshman made his first career start and logged 11 tackles.
PSU Medical Staff: Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli and crew had to deal three defensive players who were lost to injury during the game. Three other defenders were lost in the week leading up to the game.
