STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- As he walked off the field, Blake Gillikin glanced down at his left hand and shook his head in disgust. Thankfully, his feet hadnt let him down.The Penn State punter needed them to chase down a snap that glanced off his bandaged left thumb and bounced close to his teams goal line. With more than 550 pounds of Indiana defenders bearing down on him, Gillikin scooped up the loose ball, accelerated to the right and booted a neat, unreturnable punt past midfield. Although officially a 22-yard net punt, Gillikins long right leg sent the ball on a 47-yard trajectory, preventing a big loss.The hidden yardage or the hidden parts of the game, a lot of people dont see that, special teams coordinator Charles Huff said.Gillikins impacted those areas all season for the No. 9 Nittany Lions (8-2, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 8 CFP) who will face Rutgers (2-8, 0-7) and the nations busiest punter Michael Cintron on Saturday.Averaging 41 yards per punt, Gillikin has dropped 17 of his 47 punts inside opponents 20-yard lines, forced 15 fair catches and has seven kicks over 50 yards. More importantly, the Nittany Lions have won the field position battle in eight of their 10 games this season and are forcing opponents to drive at least 76 yards on average every time Gillikin punts.You see some of the punts he kicks and youre like, `Wow, defensive tackle Curtis Cothran said. You didnt expect it to go that far but the ball just keeps sailing and keeps sailing.Plays like Gillikins scramble punt helped Penn State wrestle field position back from Indiana and primed a fourth-quarter comeback. Theyre why James Franklin couldnt wait to recruit a vaunted punter. But he had to wait until the NCAA restored the Nittany Lions to 85 scholarships in 2015. The wait included a 2-16 record in games where Penn State lost the field position battle.Meanwhile, Franklin kept his eye on Gillikin, a three-sport athlete who was booting 50- and 60-yard punts in high school playoff games for Westminster High in Atlanta and had a twin brother who was a long snapper.He quickly won the starting job previously shared by Chris Gulla and former Australian-rules footballer Daniel Pasquariello. It didnt take long for Penn State players to notice Gillikins big leg. He usually warms up by lining his toes up on the goal line and blasting high, hanging punts out to the opposite 40.He was an outstanding soccer player, Tyler Gillikin said. And when we started football in high school, his leg was extremely strong. Blakes always been the kicker.Now a long snapper for Northwestern, Tyler took up the skill as a way to get more playing time alongside his twin during their sophomore year of high school. Theyve combined for countless snaps, and misfires, over the years. Their grandfather sent Tyler the video of Blake mishandling the snap against Indiana last week for a laugh, but also for pride.That pretty much is in a nutshell what kind of athlete he is, Tyler said.His situational awareness was evident on arguably Penn States most consequential hidden play so far this season.After a high snap whistled over his head against Ohio State, Gillikin hustled back across his goal line with Buckeyes in pursuit and collapsed on the ball to salvage a safety rather than let Ohio State score a touchdown. It was a 5-point swing in a game Penn State won by 4 to burst into Big Ten championship contention.You have an athlete where when in the game certain things dont always got the way you planned or maybe not exactly what you said is going to happen -- they dont panic in those situations, Huff said. They allow themselves to still be in the moment, still be able to play and what happens is, you take a bad play and you dont let it become a catastrophe.---This story has been corrected to reflect that Rutgers record is 2-8, not 8-2.

The top 5 teams of this tournament will earn for their respective sub-zones an extra berth at the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup, which will be the first inter-continental tournament featuring teams from both Asia and Oceania.India managed to stay within touching distance of the hosts in the first half, by the end of which the score was 38-31. However, Iran took control of the game in the third quarter, in which India managed only 2 points.Hamed Hadadi was Irans most influential player, with 17 points, 23 rebounds and 4 assists. Vishesh Bhriguvanshi top scored for India with 14 points, while Yadwinder Singh secured 8 rebounds. Indias most experienced players Amjyot Singh and Amritpal Singh, both of whom had had a solid tournament so far, failed to make a notable contribution.Both teams took time to get going in the first quarter. Iran were first to start off the blocks with a three-pointer from Mohammad Jamshidijafarabadi. India came back strong with two back-to-back baskets from Talwinderjit Singh andd Bhriguvanshi to take a 4-2 lead - the only lead they had throughout the game.dddddddddddd By the end of the first quarter Iran led 18-14.Hamed Hadadi came to life in the second quarter, scoring 11 of Irans 20 points, and 15 rebounds in that period and playing a role in almost every rebound to help Iran maintain the lead throughout the half. Even though India remained competitive, Amritpal Singh, Indias focal point in offense was nowhere to be seen. Amjyot Singh was Indias top scorer with 5 points after the first half. Iran led 38 -31 by the end of the second quarter.Irans offense took control of the game in the third quarter stretching the lead to 64-33 by the end of that period.

But Irans massive lead in the 3rd quarter was enough to see them through.With a 2-point conversion rate of just 27% overall in the game, India were left to rue multiple missed chances throughout the game, with Captain Amritpal Singh managing just 6 points.
