Danny Connor is winning all sorts of honors this week. He's been named the Big Ten AND Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. He racked up 12 tackles on Saturday -
Penn State's Defense is ranked among the best in the nation - They are number one in rush defense with an average NEGATIVE 1.5 average ypg. They are tied for first in sacks - and if you don't count the notre dame touchdown (which you really shouldn't) they'd be ranked first in points allowed (currently, they're ranked 6th).
