Week 5: In No. 6 Penn State's 41-13 win over Northwestern, Wallace allowed a sack and a QB pressure, but otherwise had a solid day in pass protection. He wasn't particularly effective in run blocking, though the Nittany Lions rushed for 134 yards. — JH
Week 4: Wallace logged 83 snaps in the 31-0 win over Iowa — by far his biggest workload of the season. He allowed one pressure on QB Drew Allar, but otherwise had a stellar day in pass protection. His run-blocking was also key in Penn State rushing for over 200 yards and, in general, controlling the line of scrimmage. — JH
Week 3: Wallace played 51 snaps in the Nittany Lions' downing of Illinois, 30-13. He recovered from a poor day pass-blocking the week before against Delaware by not allowing a single Illini defensive pressure on QB Drew Allar. Wallace and the rest of the offensive line helped Penn State rush for 164 yards. — JH
Week 2: In Penn State's smashing of Delaware, 63-7, Wallace played 60 snaps, almost evenly divided between run-blocking (32) and pass-blocking (28) attempts. He struggled in pass protection, allowing two pressures on Penn State QBs. — JH
Week 1: Wallace didn't allow a sack or any pressures on Penn State QB Drew Allar, who went 21-of-29 for 325 yards and three TD passes. He also had a solid day run blocking, helping Nittany Lions backs rack up 127 yards on the ground. —JH
