Penn State earned $1,000 towards its general scholarship fund for the recognition.
Iowa’s Josey Jewell was the winner of the award in Week 1.
The Nittany Lions are currently ranked No. 5 in the nation and are set to host Georgia State on Saturday. Allen has 14 total tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in the first two games of the season.
