Four Ohio State players were recognized on Sunday afternoon as the Buckeyes handed out player of the game honors for the first time this season.

Redshirt junior running back Mike Weber and redshirt senior wide receiver Terry McLaurin share offensive player of the game honors for the Buckeyes' season-opening 77-31 win over Oregon State on Saturday, while junior defensive end Nick Bosa took home defensive player of the game honors and redshirt junior linebacker Justin Hilliard was named special teams player of the game.

Weber had the most productive game of his Ohio State career on Saturday, rushing for a career-high 186 yards and tying a career-high with three rushing touchdowns, while also adding a three-yard receiving touchdown.

McLaurin also had the most productive game of his Ohio State career on Saturday, catching four passes for a career-high 121 yards and catching two touchdowns in a single game for the first time in his career.

Bosa started his junior season off in spectacular fashion, recovering two fumbles on Saturday – including one in the end zone for his first career touchdown – while also recording two sacks among four total tackles.

Hilliard was a staple on Ohio State's special teams, like he was last season, and recorded a tackle at the 20-yard line on a kickoff return.
