The biggest question on the field this week is whether or not Rex Burkhead will play against Minnesota on senior day at Memorial Stadium. Burkhead took the practice field on Monday for the first time since getting re-injured in the game at Northwestern back on October 20th when he had four carries for 13 yards.
Kicker Brett Maher was named the special teams player of the week in the Big Ten. He hit field goals of 27, 32 and 33, his fourth game with three or more field goals and he averaged 41 yards per punt. His 69 yard punt pushed Penn State back to the two, leading to a Nebraska safety. It was Maher’s sixth Big Ten honor of his career.
Saturday will be Senior Day…this is a special class for Bo Pelini, it’s the first recruiting class he brought in and he remembers how tough it was at the beginning.
