Ohio State won at ranked Oklahoma. Nebraska won a thriller against a ranked Oregon team.
It’s only fitting a Buckeye and Husker lead ESPN’s standouts for the Big Ten.
ESPN’s Adam Ward highlighted Ohio State’s Noah Brown and Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong for helmet stickers based on Saturday’s games. They were joined by Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers and Maryland’s Tyrrell Pigrome.
Here’s how they did:
- Brown had five catches for 72 yards and FOUR touchdowns to destroy Oklahoma’s defense.
- Armstrong passed for 200 yards 3 TD, 0 INT and also rushed for 95 yards and the late game-winning touchdown.
- Peppers made 9 total tackles, including 3.5 for a loss and a sack, but also had a stunning 54-yard punt return against Colorado.
- With Maryland starting QB Perry Hills injured, Pigrome ran only one play but used it to score a 24-yard TD to lead Maryland to a 2OT win against Central Florida.
Here are some of the players’ highlights from a busy Saturday.
