Ohio State not only continued its assault on a Big Ten championship Saturday night with a thrilling 40-30 victory at Northwestern, Monday morning brought home a plethora of conference weekly awards to Columbus.
Running back Carlos Hyde was named the co-offensive player of the week, along with Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah, cornerback Bradley Roby earned special teams player of the week honors and defensive lineman Joey Bosa was named the freshman of the week.
For Hyde, the award represents the fourth straight week a Buckeye has been named offensive player of the week. Kenny Guiton earned the award after the Cal and Florida A&M games, while Braxton Miller's performance against Wisconsin got him offensive player of the week honors.
Hyde rushed for a career-high 168 yards with three second-half touchdowns to bring Ohio State back from a 10-point third-quarter deficit. Thirty-eight receiving yards put him over the 200-yard all-purpose mark.
Roby blocked a Northwestern punt in the first half and then fell on the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. Bosa finished with five tackles, two of the Buckeyes' five sacks and scored a defensive touchdown on the game's final play.
