Kinlaw Rushes to FOS Alamo POG

Senior running back Rodney Kinlaw added another honor to his Fight On State award shelf; after two regular season Player of the Game honors and the regular season Offensive MVP award, Nittany Nation fans voted Kinlaw as their Player of the Game in the Alamo Bowl.

Rodney Kinlaw has had an impressive season. The Offensive MVP for the regular season also added the Player of the Game award for his 143-yard (6.8 YPC) performance against Texas A&M in the Alamo Bowl.

Kinlaw finished the 2007 season with 1329 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. The Alamo Bowl was his sixth rushing performance this season of 100 yards or more.

Alamo Bowl defensive MVP Sean Lee came in a distant second with 14 tackles (10 solo). Also of note was a strong write-in effort for the offensive line who dominated the trenches and paved the way for Kinlaw and Evan Royster, who ran 38-yards for the go-ahead score late in the third quarter.

Here is how the voting broke down:

Rodney Kinlaw: 71%

Sean Lee: 14%

Offensive Line: 6%

Daryll Clark: 5%

Deon Butler: 3%

Evan Royster: 1%

The Player of the Game is the FIRST and ONLY honor awarded to a Penn State football player by PSU fans. Voting is conducted exclusively at after every game.
