J.K. Dobbins' Ohio State career is off to a fast start.

For the second time in just three games, Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins has been named a Freshman of the Week by the Big Ten.

Dobbins shares the award this week with Rutgers quarterback Johnathan Lewis.

Dobbins receives the honor after rushing for 172 yards and two touchdowns on just 13 carries – an average of 13.2 yards per carry – in Ohio State's 38-7 win Saturday against Army. The true freshman previously earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week after rushing for 181 yards in the season opener at Indiana.

Dobbins is already just the third freshman in Ohio State history, along with Archie Griffin in 1972 and Maurice Clarett in 2002, to rush for at least 170 yards in two games.
