Penn State continues hogging Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week awards.
Senior linebacker Gerald Hodges received the honor for his play in this past weekend's 39-28 victory over Northwestern.
Hodges led the Nittany Lions with 11.5 tackles, including 1.5 for losses. His play helped Penn State hold previously-undefeated Northwestern to a season-low 247 yards.
This is the third time a Penn State player has earned the award this season. Senior linebacker Michael Mauti captured the award for his play against Navy and Illinois.
Never miss a local story.
Hodges has won the award three times in his career.
