Penn State kicker/punter Anthony Fera was recognized Monday as the Big Ten's special teams player of the week for the third time this season. The redshirt sophomore is the first Nittany Lions' special teamer to win the award three times in a season.

In Saturday's 20-14 win at Ohio State, Fera booted a career-long 46-yard field goal and a 43-yard field goal. He also pinned three punts inside the Buckeyes' 20-yard line.
