Nittany Lions and Knights will play first non-conference night game in Beaver Stadium since 2007


Inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame: 1990

All-American Selection: 1970

An All-American in 1970, Jack Ham became the 10th Nittany Lion to be enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame when he was inducted in 1990. Ham is the only Penn State product in both the college and professional football halls of fame. A nine-time All-Pro linebacker for the National Football League Pittsburgh Steelers, Ham was enshrined at Canton in 1988. As a senior co-captain in 1970, Ham had 91 tackles and intercepted four passes. He still shares a pair of defensive records for blocked punts: four in his career, three in his final season. He had 251 career tackles (143 solo). A second-round draft choice of the Steelers in 1971, Ham developed into one of the NFL's most outstanding linebackers. He starred on all four of the Steelers' Super Bowl championship teams and was the Defensive Player-of-the-Year in 1975. He is president of a drug testing services company and also works as a radio and television football analyst, including his role with the Penn State Sports Network. He is a Penn State Distinguished Alumni Award recipient
