Players Poll Week 3
Vote for the Ironman of the Game:

Chris Godwin
Brandon Smith
Tyler Davis
Parker Cothren


Chris Godwin, Wide Receiver - Godwin had seven receptions, 117 yards and a touchdown in the win over Temple. Godwin recorded his seventh career 100-yard receiving game and first of the season with 117 yards. With seven catches on the day, Godwin moved into 10th all-time on Penn State career receptions list with 112 receptions, passing Tony Johnson (107, 2000-03), current Penn State assistant coach Terry Smith (108, 1988-91), Kenny Jackson (109, 1980-83) and Bryant Johnson (110, 1999-2002). He logged five 100-yard efforts in 2015 and had more than 100 yards in the 2014 Pinstripe Bowl. With 117 receiving yards, Godwin moved his career total to 1,642 yards, which ranks No. 14 on Penn State’s all-time list. Godwin caught his first TD pass of the season in the first quarter, giving him eight career touchdown grabs. Godwin now has at least one catch in 28-of-29 career games and has at least four catches in 15 of his last 17 games.

Brandon Smith, Linebacker - Smith entered Saturday's game having played just three career defensive snaps and 44 overall snaps in his career. When Nyeem Wartman-White was injured in the first quarter (combined with starting LBs Brandon Bell and Jason Cabinda already out with injuries), Smith was called on to be the Mike linebacker and organize the defense. He answered the call and made a career-high eight tackles, after having just one career stop entering the game. He also added his first career tackle-for-loss, a combined stop with Brown in the fourth quarter, and had a pass breakup.

Tyler Davis, Kicker - Davis converted both of his field goal tries in the game, connecting from 40 and 30 yards, respectively, and is now 13-of-13 for his career. Davis was also a perfect 4-for-4 in extra point attempts, making him 22-of-22 to start his career.

Parker Cothren, Defensive Tackle - With four defensive starters out and the loss of Mike linebacker Nyeem Wartman-White in the first quarter, Cothren stepped up to post a career-high seven tackles, including a personal-best 2.5 tackles for loss. Cothren also tied his career-high with a half-sack, the fourth such game of his career.
