Ohio State football: Hyde, Roby, Bosa receive Big Ten honors
Carlos Hyde ran for 168 yards and three touchdowns against Northwestern.
Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde was named the Big Ten co-offensive player of the week, sharing the honor with Ameer Abdullah of Nebraska and giving OSU at least a share of the award for the fourth straight week.
Hyde, who displayed midseason form despite missing the first three games of the season because of a team suspension, ran for 168 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-30 victory over Northwestern and averaged 6.5 yards on 26 carries, including a long of 17 yards. He gained 12 first downs rushing and three more with catches.
Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa was named freshman of the week. He had five tackles against the Wildcats, including his first two career sacks, and also recovered a Northwestern fumble in the end zone as time expired for the game's final score.
Junior cornerback Bradley Roby is the special teams player of the week after blocking and recovering a punt in the end zone for Ohio State's only touchdown in the first half.
OSU quarterback Kenny Guiton was the conference offensive player of the week after wins against California and Florida A&M, and QB Braxton Miller took the award last week following his play in the win over Wisconsin.
Also honored by the conference this week is Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard, who was named defensive player of the week.
