Ohio State defensive end Sam Hubbard has been named as the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against Michigan in the Buckeyes' 31-20 win on Saturday.

Hubbard recorded 2.5 sacks, including one on which he forced a fumble that led to a 16-yard loss, among five total tackles in Saturday's game. 

Those 2.5 sacks were a career-high for the redshirt junior defensive end from Cincinnati.

Hubbard is the first Ohio State player to earn Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week honors this year, and it's the first time he's won the award in his career. An Ohio State player has won the award in two straight years after wins over Michigan, as former Buckeyes linebacker Raekwon McMillan won the award for his performance against the Wolverines last year.
