Penn State has selected its honorary captain for the White Out on Saturday night.
The Nittany Lions will be represented by former player Adam Taliaferro against Auburn — 21 years after he was paralyzed during a game in 2000.
He was given a 5% chance to walk again before he eventually made a full recovery.
Taliaferro returned to Penn State as a student in 2001 before earning his degree in 2005.
The top-25 matchup will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday evening in front of the first White Out with fans since 2019.
