Brandon Smith had no idea why he was being treated as the the big man on campus.

The junior linebacker was minding his business in class when a fellow student spilled the tea that he was the B1G Defensive Player of the Week.

Smith was hilariously oblivious prior to the interaction:

Smith captured the award for his performance during Penn State’s victory vs. Auburn. Smith amassed a career-high 10 tackles, along with a tackle for a loss, a pass breakup and a quarterback hurry.

The 6-foot-3, 241-pound Smith has totaled 25 overall tackles this season. Smith is the first Penn State player to win the award since Robert Windsor in 2018.

Next up for Penn State is a Sept. 25 home matchup vs. in-state opponent Villanova.
