The Big Ten office announced its Week 2 Players of the Week on Monday. The recipients: Jeremy Gallon (Offense), Shilique Calhoun (Defense), Marcus Jones & Akeem Hunt (Special Teams) and Corey Clement (Freshman). Read more about each player and see one of their highlights in this post.
It took all of 14 seconds for Purdue to match its Week 1 one scoring total Saturday. Darrell Hazell went with trickeration on the opening kickoff, and speedy Akeem Hunt took the reverse 90 yards to the end zone. And just like that, without one offensive possession, the Boilermakers led Indiana State, 7-0. Purdue, of course, lost 42-7 to Cincinnati in last week’s opener.
