Lattimore earns Player of the Week award
The Ohio State Buckeyes beat the rain Saturday and put a beating on Tulsa in a 48-3 win that again showcased their suffocating defense.
And Sunday, one of the defensive heroes was awarded.
Marshon Lattimore, who had two interceptions, including one for a 40-yard touchdown, was named the Walter Camp FBS Defensive Player of the Week. Lattimore, a sophomore corner, made three tackles for a defense which allowed just 188 total yards.
Here is video of Lattimore’s touchdown:
Lattimore became the 10th Ohio State player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, and the first on the defensive side of the ball since former DB Chimdi Chekwa (Sept. 12, 2010).
Where did this Ohio State defense come from?
On the offensive side, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, also a sophomore, took home his second consecutive Walter Camp Player of the Week award. In a 62-28 win Friday over Syracuse, Jackson accounted for an ACC-record 610 yards from scrimmage. Jackson completed 20-of-39 passes for 411 yards and one touchdown. He rushed for 199 yards and four scores on the ground.
