Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins Jr. was named Big Ten offensive player of the week Monday after his stellar starting debut in the 77-31 season-opening win over Oregon State.

The third-year sophomore threw for 313 yards and five touchdowns – both school records for a quarterback making his first start – while completing 22 of 30 passes with one interception.

The last time an OSU player earned the league’s offensive weekly honor was running back Mike Weber on Nov.13, 2017. He was in the running for it again this time, after rushing for a career-high 186 yards and three touchdowns against the Beavers, and adding a touchdown catch.
