Penn State Football defensive end – Arnold Ebiketie
Arnold Ebiketie has been one of the most impactful players for this entire Penn State Football team all year long, and especially in recent weeks.
The transfer from Temple has had 3 sacks (2 of them being strip-sacks) in the past two games. He is the Big Ten leader with 17 tackles for loss, and also second in the conference with 9.5 sacks.
Against a great Michigan State rushing attack, he will need to continue to make tackles at and around the line of scrimmage, and be a constant disruptor in the Spartans’ backfield.
Michigan State is third in the Big Ten in both passing yards per attempt and in passing touchdowns, so “AK” being able to get consistent pressure and hits on quarterback Payton Thorne will be crucial, as the secondary will do their part in making things difficult.
Ebiketie has the opportunity to continue to improve his draft stock, as well has help the Nittany Lions pick up a big time win on the road, with a big game this weekend against Michigan State.
