Would have liked to see both Andrew Dailey and James Van Fleet earn this together, but I guess it is what it is.

With the score tied in the third quarter, Dailey blocked an Indiana punt which was scooped up by teammate James Van Fleet and returned 21 yards for a touchdown to give Penn State a 31-24 lead. The Nittany Lions would add another score to end the game with a 41-24 victory. The junior safety has now blocked two punts in his career, including the most recent blocked punt by PSU against Eastern Illinois in 2009. Dailey’s block was the first rejected punt returned for a score by the Nittany Lions since the 2005 season. Dailey picks up the first weekly laurel of his career.

LAST PSU SPECIAL TEAMS POW: K Collin Wagner on Nov. 1, 2010.
Congrats, Andrew! Now go do it again, this time to Sparty!
