Homan may have picked up the Big Ten's award for Defensive Player of the Week for Ohio State's 31-13 win over the Badgers, but Coleman edged him for the honor within his own team. Also, no Offensive Player of the Week or Parker Lineman of the Week award winners were named.
Safety Kurt Coleman was the Buckeyes’ defensive player of the week, with an 89-yard interception return for a touchdown (the fifth longest such play in Ohio State history) and a career-best 14 tackles. Ray Small, who returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, was the player of the week on the special units.
The “Attack Force” award went to linebacker Ross Homan, who had 15 tackles and a pair of sacks. An offensive player of the week, the Jim Parker lineman of the week and the Jack Tatum Big Hit of the week were not awarded.
Scout team champions were: Offense: Spencer Smith; Defense: Taylor Rice; Special Units: Ricky Crawford.
