Penn State seniors Gerald Hodges and Michael Mauti continue to make a name for themselves. The standout linebackers joined elite company Monday afternoon when they were named semifinalists for the Butkus Award. The honor, given annually to the nation's best linebacker, released the list of the 12 semifinalists and Penn State was the only school with two players on the list. The finalists will be announced Nov. 20 and the winner Dec. 4.
