Big Ten Names Players of the Week
Defensive honors went to Illinois’ Jonathan Brown, who lived in the Arizona State backfield all night, with 3.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. Brown also forced Arizona State’s first interception by hitting Brock Osweiler as he was throwing, and he later picked off a pass himself. Minnesota’s Duane Bennett earned Special Teams Player of the Week for his blocked punt that he returned for a touchdown in the Gophers’ 29-23 win over Miami (OH). And Indiana’s D’Angelo Roberts claimed Freshman of the Week laurels after rushing for 102 yards, including a seven-yard scoring run.
