After a dominating performance against Penn State, Chase Young has been named the Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week.
With perhaps the best college football player in the nation, Nick Bosa, sidelined with injury, the Buckeyes needed someone to step up, and Young did just that.
Young finished the game with six tackles, three tackles for a loss, and two sacks. Young also batted down two passes at the line of scrimmage and registered two quarterback hurries against Trace McSorley.
Seeming to get more dominant as the game went on, Young made three huge plays late in the game. He batted down a pass on a fourth-down play that would have given Penn State a first down in Ohio State territory late in the third quarter, sacked McSorley on the final drive and ended the game with a tackle for a loss on fourth down a play later.
Young is the second Buckeye to win the award this season, as Bosa claimed the honors after his performance against Oregon State in the opening week.
