Penn State might have someone special in sophomore kicker/punter Anthony Fera.
Fera today was named the Big Ten Conference special teams player of the week for the third time this season after making two field goals and having three punts downed inside the 20-yard-line in Penn State's 20-14 victory over Ohio State on Saturday.
