KeAndre Lambert-Smith, a wide receiver for Penn State, traveled to Michigan in advance of the game between the No. 10 Nittany Lions and the No. 5 Wolverines, and he participated in pregame warmups there.
In the 17-7 victory over Northwestern two weeks ago, Lambert-Smith played only a small number of snaps due to an early injury. After the game, he was seen walking in a boot. James Franklin, the head coach, expressed “hopefulness” that the junior may participate earlier this week.
Along with junior Parker Washington and redshirt senior Mitchell Tinsley, Lambert-Smith has been one of Penn State’s top three wide receivers this season. This season, Lambert-Smith has nine receptions for 104 yards and one score. For the Penn State defense, he has the ability to open up the field.
Harrison Wallace III, a redshirt freshman, is Lambert-primary Smith’s backup if he is unable to travel. This season, Wallace has seven catches for 86 yards.
On Penn State’s second drive, Lambert-Smith joined the contest and participated in two official snaps. He made a catch on a play that was ruled offside, hence it was not a valid catch.
– Redshirt junior Caedan Wallace served as the first-team right tackle, and redshirt senior Hunter Nourzad played guard.
– Sophomore Chop Robinson was a first-team defensive end, while redshirt-sophomore Tyler Elsdon started at middle linebacker. Rpbonson – After not starting last week, redshirt junior defensive tackle Hakeem Beamon practiced with the first team.
– Instead of sophomore Kalen King, first-team cornerback Johnny Dixon, a senior, was warming up. This season, they have alternated playing opposite Joey Porter Jr. at cornerback.
– On a windy day at Michigan Stadium, senior Jonathan Sutherland was holding for kicker Jake Pinegar on kickoffs.
Additionally, Penn State took four running backs on its trip: Nick Singleton, Keyvone Lee, Kaytron Allen, and Tank Smith.
– The following freshmen traveled with the team: cornerback Cam Miller, safety KJ Winston, quarterbacks Drew Allar and Beau Pribula, wide receivers Omari Evans and Kaden Saunders, offensive linemen Drew Shelton and Vega Ioane, defensive tackle Zane Durant, defensive end Dani Dennis-Sutton, linebackers Abdul Carter and Keon Wylie.
Coziah Izzard, a defensive tackle, traveled after making his season debut a week ago. Izzard missed the season’s first four games.
– Jaden Dottin, a wide receiver, travelled. Since making a pinch start against Ohio in Week 2, he hasn’t played.
– Six specialists from Penn State traveled with them: long snappers Chris Stoll and Tyler Duzansky, kickers Jake Pinegar and Sander Sahaydak, punters Barney Amor and Gabe Nwosu.
– Brenton Strange, Theo Johnson, Tyler Warren, and Khalil Dinkins were the four tight ends that Penn State took on the road.
The game between Michigan (6-0, 3-0) and Penn State (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) is set to begin at 12:10 p.m. on Fox.
The Wolverines are sporting navy blue jerseys and navy blue leggings today because Michigan is holding a “Maize Out” at the Big House. Penn State is sporting its customary all-white attire.
In Ann Arbor, it was 44 degrees with a real feel in the high 30s under partly cloudy skies an hour before kickoff. Over the course of the afternoon, the temperature is forecast to gradually rise into the 50s, but there will be gusty winds out of the west southwest at 11 mph.
