Justin Fields and Tommy Togiai have been honored by the Big Ten for their spectacular performances against Penn State.

Fields, who completed 28 of 34 passing attempts for 318 yards and four touchdowns in Ohio State's 38-25 win over the Nittany Lions, shares this week's Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors with Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, who led the Terrapins to an overtime win over Minnesota. 

Amazingly, it's the first time Fields – who was the Big Ten's offensive player of the year and quarterback of the year last season – has earned offensive player of the week honors from the conference.

Togiai is the Big Ten's sole Defensive Player of the Week after he recorded a career-high seven total tackles, including the first three sacks of his Ohio State career, to lead a strong showing for the Buckeyes' defensive line as they held Penn State to just 44 rushing yards to 27 attempts on Saturday night.
