MVP! MVP! Wagner Secures 2nd Big Ten Honor of the Year

Our own Colin Wagner was named as Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week by the Big Ten for his performance against michigan.  While it was certainly a team effort, Colin did excel in the clutch moments of the game, with "security" points AND yards late in the game.

Per bigten.org:

SPECIAL TEAMS:Collin Wagner, Penn StateSR, K, State College, Pa./State College AreaWagner connected on both field goal attempts and five extra points and helped seal the victory with a fourth-down conversion on a fake field goal in a victory over Michigan. The senior kicker connected on a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter to put the Nittany Lions ahead 31-10. After the Wolverines cut the deficit to seven points with less than 10 minutes left in the game, Wagner capped the ensuing possession with a 42-yard field goal with just under six minutes remaining to push the lead back to 10 points. Michigan was unable to convert a fourth down on the next possession, but Penn State’s ensuing drive stalled and the Wolverines used their final timeout with 3:44 on the clock. Instead of kicking a field goal on fourth-and-four, PSU ran a fake and Wagner scrambled seven yards on his first collegiate carry for the first down. The Nittany Lions then ran out the clock for the win. Wagner nabs weekly accolades for the second time in his career and for the season after being honored on Sept. 27, 2010.
LAST PSU SPECIAL TEAMS POW: K Collin Wagner on Sept. 27, 2010.
