Altoona's Mike Reid is the only Penn State player to have won the Outland Trophy -- in 1969 -- but he could be getting some company this year.
Nittany Lion defensive tackle Devon Still is one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's best interior lineman. He's also one of three finalists for an even bigger honor, the Chuck Bednarik Award, which goes to the country's best defensive player.
Still was named a finalist for both awards Monday. Last week, he was named a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which also goes to the top defensive player.
Still has 16 1/2 tackles for loss -- he leads the Big Ten with 15 solo TFLs -- four sacks and 53 tackles. The senior also has been praised for his strong leadership off the field by fellow PSU players and coaches.
The Bednarik and Outland awards will be presented Dec. 8.
Penn State's LaVar Arrington, Paul Posluszny and Dan Connor all won the Bednarik Award during their careers. The Lions have never had a Nagurski Trophy winner.
SUBHD: Fera honored again
Penn State kicker Anthony Fera was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week for the third time this season on Monday.
Fera kicked 46- and 43-yard field goals -- the two longest of his career -- to help the Lions win at Ohio State, 20-14.
