Week 13 Ironman of the Game

Christian Hackenberg
True freshman Christian Hackenberg played the best game of his Nittany Lion career in the 31-24 victory at No. 15 Wisconsin. Hackenberg finished 21-30 for 339 yards and four touchdowns. He connected with TE Adam Breneman for a 68-yard TD, Allen Robinson for 52-yards in the first quarter, and Geno Lewis on a 59-yard TD pass in the third quarter. Those are the three longest pass plays allowed by Wisconsin in 2013.

Zach Zwinak
For the fourth-straight game, Zach Zwinak topped 100 rushing yards. The Nittany Lion senior finished the season just 11 yards shy of 1,000 for the season. Zwinak's 61-yard burst in the fourth quarter was the longest rushing play allowed by the Badger defense all season.

Mike Hull
Junior Mike Hull led the Nittany Lions in tackling with seven stops on Saturday. Hull has led or tied for the team lead for tackles in five of the eight Big Ten games. He played an instrumental role in holding Wisconsin to just 24 points (Wisconsin's second lowest total all season) and 120 yards rushing (more than 150 yards below Wisconsin's season average).

Ryan Keiser
Junior safety Ryan Keiser sealed the Penn State victory with an interception on Wisconsin's final offensive play. Keiser tallied five tackles and broke up two passes in the road victory. Like Hull, Keiser played a huge role in holding Wisconsin to just 24 points (Wisconsin's second lowest total all season) and 120 yards rushing (more than 150 yards below Wisconsin's season average).
