Nick Singleton delivered a big performance against Auburn in Week 3. His play in the game earned him 247Sports True Freshman of the Week honors per 247Sports’ Chris Hummer.

Singleton was a big part of the reason why the Nittany Lions had so much success against the Tigers. Penn State went on to beat Auburn 41-12 after his 124 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns on 10 carries.

He has been embracing his role with the team, and currently has 334 yards rushing with 4 touchdowns through 3 games this season.

Penn State now has a Power 5 road win after handling Auburn. The Nittany Lions have a reset game against Central Michigan at home next before taking on Northwestern (Oct. 1) in their 2nd B1G game of the year.

Central Michigan will be the last non-conference game of the year for Penn State, as the rest of the slate will be all B1G from there on out.

Singleton will have a chance to improve on his numbers from last week with the Chippewas coming to town.
