Kaytron Allen receives weekly Big Ten honor




Another week, another weekly Big Ten honor for a Penn State football player. Freshman running back Kaytron Allen was honored by the Big Ten as the conference's freshman of the week following his first career 100-yard game in a win against Central Michigan in Week 4.

Allen rushed for 111 yards on 13 rushing attempts for Penn State in Saturday's 33-14 victory over the Chippewas. It was a new career-high for Allen, who was playing in just his fourth collegiate game.

Allen and fellow freshman running back Nick Singleton have now combined for the last three Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors. It is the first time Penn State has had back-to-back Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors for two separate players since Keyvone Lee and Joey Porter Jr. were honored in back-to-back weeks in 2020.

Allen is Penn State's second-leading rusher with 217 yards and three touchdowns this season. Singleton leads the Nittnay Lions with 376 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Allen also has three receptions for 38 yards this season.

Here are this week's Big Ten players of the week for Week 4:

  • Co-Offensive Player of the Week: Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

  • Co-Offensive Player of the Week: Tanner Morgan, QB, Minnesota

  • Co-Defensive Player of the Week: Kaevon Merriweather, DB, Iowa

  • Co-Defensive Player of the Week: Tommy Eichenberg, LB, Ohio State

  • Special Teams Player of the Week: Tory Taylor, P, Iowa

  • Freshman of the Week: Kaytorn Allen, RB, Penn State
