Penn State kicker Kevin Kelly was named Big Ten special teams player of the week today for his performance in the Nittany Lions’ 46-17 win over Michigan on Saturday. The senior from Langhorne, Pa. connected on three of four field goal attempts, made all five PAT tries and averaged 67.2 yards on nine kickoffs. Kelly also became the conference’s all-time leader during the game and now has 376 career points.
With three more field goals, Kelly, a Lou Groza Award candidate, would also become the Big Ten’s all-time leader in that category with 73. No. 3-ranked Penn State travels to No. 10 Ohio State on Saturday for a nationally-televised (6ABC) 8 p.m. start.
