Here are this week’s Big Ten Players of the Week award winners:
Offensive Player of the Week: Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong
Armstrong passed for 246 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for a team-high 132 yards in Nebraska’s 24-13 win. Armstrong’s performance helped the Huskers remain unbeaten and move up to No. 15 in the major polls. It was also the first time Armstrong rushed for more than 100 yards in a game since he picked up 131 yards against McNeese State on Sept. 6, 2014. The 132 yards were also a personal best.
It’s the third time Armstrong won the award.
