FOS-TV: Nate Stupar

We catch up with the versatile linebacker who led the Nittany Lions in tackles after replacing injured starter Navorro Bowman in the opener.

Penn State All-Big Ten outside linebacker Navorro Bowman pulled himself from Saturday's season-opening win over Akron. It was the first quarter, and redshirt sophomore Nate Stupar was standing on the sideline.

As Bowman left the field due to a groin injury, the call went out for Stupar. He hustled on the field, and went on to have the best game of his young career.

He posted a game-high 12 tackles, including a sack.

Afterward, we caught up with defensive coordinator Tom Bradley and Stupar himself to talk about the performance. Bradley revealed that Stupar has actually spent the last couple of weeks manning the second team at both OLB spots (behind Bowman and Sean Lee).

See what they both had to say in this installment of FOS-TV:
