The awards keep coming for Marvin Harrison Jr.

After he earned Eleven Warriors' offensive player of the week and Ohio State's offensive player of the game on Sunday, Harrison was named the Big Ten co-offensive player of the week with Maryland's Taulia Tagovailoa on Monday.

The awards come after Harrison led the Buckeyes with seven catches for 184 yards and three scores in a 45-12 win over Arkansas State. He also put himself in elite company along with Joey Galloway as the only Ohio State receivers with multiple three-touchdown games in school history. Even more, Harrison accomplished that feat in three starts – last year's Rose Bowl, the 2022 season opener against Notre Dame and Saturday's matchup with Arkansas State.

Harrison is the first Buckeye to earn a Big Ten player of the week award this season. In 2021, C.J. Stroud won the honor twice for his performances against Maryland and Michigan State, while TreVeyon Henderson and Garrett Wilson each claimed Big Ten co-offensive player of the week awards for their outings against Tulsa and Purdue, respectively.
