UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State offensive line coach and run game coordinator Herb Hand will be a competitor on Tuesday night's episode of "Chopped" on Food Network (10 p.m. ET).

Hand was invited to put his cooking skills to the test on the competitive show last fall. During a Vanderbilt bye week, Hand and his family flew to New York to film the episode known as "Four Fathers". The show pits four contestants against one another who have minimal time to make an appetizer, main course and dessert with unusual ingredients.

The contestants are judged after each round, with the worst contestant being "chopped" until one contestant remains. According to Food Network, the "Four Fathers" episode features an appetizer round with fish and salt and vinegar potato chips, and in the dessert round rice pudding and pretzel dessert.

"It's basically a dad's who cook show. It combines food and competition, two of my favorite things," Hand said. "I'm looking forward to watching the show. I think everyone will be excited about it."

The full description of Tuesday's "Four Fathers" episode from Food Network is:

"Making their kids proud, four daring dads take on the pressure cooker that is the Chopped Kitchen, but how will the fathers-turned-competitors fare with fish and salt and vinegar potato chips in the appetizer round? The dads get the gift of a bottle of scotch in the entree basket. And after the two fathers fight it out in the dessert round, the judges debate whose rice pudding and pretzel dessert was more successful." (Episode: CQ1908H)

The episode debuts on Food Network Tuesday at 10 p.m. It will re-air four times, as well - June 11 at 1 a.m. ET, June 15 at 7 p.m. ET, June 19 at 8 p.m. ET and June 20 at 3 a.m. ET. The Food Network is distributed to more than 100 million households in the U.S.
