Dwayne HASKINS is the offensive player of the week.

It was a pretty safe bet, but now it's official – Dwayne Haskins is the Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Week after a career passing performance where he tied one single-game school record and came just shy of another.

Just six weeks into the season, this is already Haskins' fourth Big Ten Player of the Week honor and the third straight week he's earned the accolade.

Haskins went 33-for-44 passing for 455 yards and six touchdowns. Those six scores tied a program record held by J.T. Barrett and Kenny Guiton and the 455 yards was just three yards shy of Art Schlichter's single-game passing record which he set in a loss to Florida State in 1981.

With his passing performance, Haskins also became the first player in Big Ten history to record three games with at least five passing touchdowns in a single season – and we're only halfway through the regular season.

Haskins is on pace to shatter every almost all of Ohio State single-season passing records, including the school records, including total passing yardage, completion percentage, touchdowns and yards per game.

His 25 touchdown passes through six games already ranks fifth for a single season in Ohio State history.
