Davis Named to All-Big Ten First Team

Tyler Davis is honored by the conference coaches as Penn State's only All-Big Ten selection for the 2016 season.

Penn State kicker Tyler Davis has been honored by the conference coaches as an All-Big Ten selection. He was a second team selection by the media. Davis has been among the most reliable weapons for the Nittany Lions this season, hitting 21 of 23 (91.3 percent) of his field goal attempts on the year with his two misses resulting from blocked kicks.

He is also perfect (50 for 50) this season on extra points for the Blue and White and currently leads the team with 113 total points this season.

Davis is Penn State's first first team All-Big Ten selection at kicker since Kevin Kelly was a first team pick by both the coaches and media in 2008. Sam Ficken was a second team selection for the conference honor by both the media and coaches in 2014.
