Penn State player who used Derek Jeter's locker for Pinstripe Bowl wins game (VIDEO)

Derek Jeter was nowhere near Yankee Stadium on Saturday but, his aura seemed to play a big part in Penn State's one-point victory over Boston College in an exciting Pinstripe Bowl finish.

Penn State kicker Sam Ficken gave the Nittany Lions the overtime win, hitting an extra point to give the Lions the come-from-behind win, 31-30.

So what might seem like more than just coincidence, out of all the lockers at Yankee Stadium, Ficken used the retired Yankee icon's old space for the game.

And apparently, beside Jeter's cologne residue, some of his mystical powers rubbed off on the senior kicker too.

You might remember plenty of the Captain's magical moments in the Bronx including Jeter's final hit during his last game at Yankee Stadium (above) against the Orioles. And now, the player who uses his locker, kicks the winning extra point for the final kick of his PSU career?


"It's kind of a funny thing," Ficken said after the game-winner.

Funny .... or destined?
