J.K. Dobbins, Damon Arnette and Chris Olave are Ohio State's players of the week.

Each of the three came up with enormous plays during Ohio State's 51-10 rout of Indiana on Saturday.

Dobbins, the offensive player of the game, turned in another fantastic performance in Bloomington, registering 193 rushing yards and a touchdown to complement 14 receiving yards and another score through the air. It mirrored the production he showed in the first collegiate start of his career, when he amassed 205 total yards against the Hoosiers in 2017.

The difference on Saturday, however, was he did all of his damage playing just a hair over half the game before the staff turned things over to his backup, Master Teague.

It's the second consecutive week Dobbins has earned offensive player of the game honors, as he was also offensive player of the game for the Buckeyes' 42-0 win over Cincinnati.

Arnette earned defensive player of the game honors by tallying three tackles, three pass breakups and an interception that he returned 96 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the third quarter.

Olave rounds out the group as the special teams honoree. He had himself a game on the offensive side of things, hauling in three catches for a game-high 70 yards and a touchdown. But it was his blocked punt that resulted in an Indiana safety midway through the second quarter that landed him on this list.
