After one of the best games of his career in Ohio State's 51-10 win over Indiana on Saturday, J.K. Dobbins is the Big Ten co-offensive player of the week.

Dobbins received the honor from the conference on Monday after rushing for 193 yards and a touchdown and also catching two passes for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Buckeyes' blowout victory. His massive rushing total, the second-highest of his Ohio State career, came in just over one half of play, as he was taken out of the game following the Buckeyes' opening touchdown drive of the second half.

It's the first time in Dobbins' Ohio State career that he has earned Big Ten offensive player of the week honors. He shares this week's honors with Minnesota wide receiver Tyler Johnson, who caught 10 passes for 140 yards and three touchdowns in the Gophers' win over Georgia Southern.
