After arguably the most dominant performance of his career against the nation's top defense, Dwayne Haskins is the Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Week for a single-season record sixth time.
With six weekly honors, Haskins now stands alone with the most Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors in a single season, topping Troy Smith's total of five, which he tied last week. With six this season, Haskins has claimed the weekly honor every other game he's played, on average.
Against the statistical-best defense in the country this week, Haskins went 20-for-31 for 396 yards and tied his own school record with six touchdowns. He also added 34 yards on the ground on seven carries – the second-best rushing performance of his career.
