Ohio State named eight offensive players and 12 defensive players as champions for their performances in Saturday's 52-12 win at Michigan State.
Left tackle Dawand Jones, left guard Matthew Jones and right tackle Max Wray all earned champion honors for the first time in their careers after they made their first career starts while filling in for Thayer Munford, Josh Myers and Nicholas Petit-Frere against the Spartans. Right guard Wyatt Davis was also named a champion; Harry Miller, who had some issues snapping the ball after moving from left guard to center for Saturday's game, was the only offensive lineman who didn't receive champion honors.
Offensive player of the game Justin Fields was also joined as a champion on his side of the ball by running back Trey Sermon, who had a breakout game by rushing for 112 yards and a touchdown against the Spartans, and tight ends Luke Farrell and Jeremy Ruckert.
On the other side of the ball, co-defensive players of the game Shaun Wade and Haskell Garrett were joined by the defensive tackle Tommy Togiai, the defensive end quartet of Jonathon Cooper, Zach Harrison, Javontae Jean-Baptiste and Tyreke Smith, linebackers Baron Browning, Justin Hilliard and Pete Werner, cornerback Sevyn Banks and safety Marcus Hooker.
Punter Drue Chrisman was this week's special teams player of the game.
