Bench appeared in two games for Penn State in 2012, completing 2 of 8 attempts. He decided to transfer after the Nittany Lions' spring game.

"I thought that he got better throughout the spring," Penn State coach Bill O'Brien said during a stop on the Coaches' Caravan tour according to StateCollege.com. "And I have nothing but great things to say about him, and I felt that he still had room to get better and would still get reps here. No starter has been named, but I told him that going in that he may not get as many reps as some of the other guys but you're still going to get reps."
