Penn State fans got a treat during Saturday's Blue-White game at Beaver Stadium when Keegan-Michael Key impersonated head coach James Franklin.

In this highlight video from the Big Ten Network, Key showed off the comedic skills he famously honed on Comedy Central's Key & Peele for five seasons:

Football figured into one of the signature sketches on Key & Peele, with the 47-year-old and his partner, Jordan Peele, creating a host of wacky names in the East-West College Bowl.

This isn't the first time Key has shared his impression of Franklin. He previously played the role of Penn State's coach in 2015 during the homecoming parade.

Key also has a connection to the school after earning his master's degree from Penn State in 1996.
