Ohio State Dominates Week 3's Big Ten Football Players of the Week
How much does Ohio State control the Big Ten?
Enough to have two of the four Big Ten Players of the Week selected. The Big Ten announced the top players from the conference on Monday afternoon, and the Buckeyes are once again well represented.
You know the school is firing on all cylinders when backup quarterback Kenny Guiton is named the Offensive Player of the Week. With Braxton Miller nursing a knee injury, Guiton completed 65 percent of his passes and threw for 276 yards and four touchdowns in the Buckeyes' 52-34 win over California.
Who had the best performance in Week Three?
He's the first Ohio State player to be named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week since running back Carlos Hyde received the honors last season.
Linebacker Ryan Shazier was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. While Guiton was holding down the offense, Shazier led the team with 12 tackles, one sack and forced a fumble. It is the third time he received Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week honors.
In case you are wondering, there are two other schools who were represented this week.
Punter Justin DuVernois of Illinois was named the Special Teams Player of the Week and Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg was named the Freshman of the Week. Hackenberg continues to wow Nittany Lions fans, as he keeps playing at a high level and was even named Freshman of the Week after the season-opening win against Syracuse.
