Penn State Football cornerback – Tariq Castro-Fields
Rutgers is certainly not the most talented team the Nittany Lions will have faced this season, but wide receiver Bo Melton is possibly one of the more underrated players in the Big Ten.
Melton is fifth in the conference in receptions on the season with 48, so the Scarlet Knights certainly will look to get the ball to their best playmaker as much as possible.
Rutgers does not have a good rushing attack, so if Tariq Castro-Fields and his partners in crime in the secondary can shut down the Scarlet Knights’ best pass catcher, it could be a long afternoon for their offense.
Castro-Fields exited with an injury last week against Michigan but is expected to be good to go this week.
He has quietly put together a very nice career in a Penn State Football uniform, and the fifth-year senior in his final year of eligibility has a chance to once again be a difference-maker in his final game inside Beaver Stadium.
