Penn State placekicker/punter Anthony Fera was named a candidate for the Ray Guy Award given to the nation's top punter.

The redshirt sophomore is fourth in the Big Ten with an average of 42.1 yards on punts. He has five punts inside the 20-yard line.

Fera is one of three players - Nebraska's Brett Maher and Oklahoma State's Quinn Sharp are the others - to be a candidate for the Ray Guy Award and one of 20 semifinalists for the Lou Groza award.

Ten semifinalists for the Ray Guy Award will be announced Nov. 11.
