Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins received another award for his Week 1 performance on Tuesday, when he was named as the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose National Player of the Week.
The weekly honor is awarded to the best offensive player in college football who either plays for a school in Texas or is from the state of Texas. Dobbins, a native of La Grange, Texas, earned the award after running the ball 29 times for 181 yards – the most ever by an Ohio State freshman in his first game – while also adding two catches for 24 yards in the Buckeyes' season opener against Indiana on Thursday.
Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett, who is from Wichita Falls, Texas, received an honorable mention for the award after completing 20 of 35 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns while also running the ball 13 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's game.
Dobbins was named Monday as the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
