B1G Championship, Allen Haley

Penn State cornerback Grant Haley (15) and Penn State safety Marcus Allen (2) make a stop on Wisconsin running back Corey Clement (6) on fourth down during the Big Ten Football Championship Game between Penn State and Wisconsin at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016.

Grant Haley and Marcus Allen have been a force in Penn State's secondary all season long.

The nation has taken notice of the two seniors.

The pair are two of just 13 semifinalists for the Jim Thorpe Award. An annual award given to the best defensive back in college football.

Haley has been one of the top cover corners in the Big Ten all season long and has played nickle and on the outside for the Nittany Lions in 2017.

Allen, has been known as one of the best run stopping safeties in the country for some time now. This season, he has taken his pass coverage to another level as he continues to boost his draft stock during his senior season.
