TreVeyon Henderson receives Big Ten co-offensive player of the week, freshman of week honors
Ohio State running back TreVeyon Henderson has picked up a pair of weekly Big Ten honors after rushing for 277 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday’s win over Tulsa.
Henderson was named the conference’s co-offensive player of the week along with Michigan State quarterback Payton Thorne and the freshman of the week.
His 277 rushing yards set a record for a Buckeyes freshman and were also the third-most in a game in school history, trailing only Trey Sermon, who totaled 331 yards in the Big Ten championship game last December, and Eddie George, who previously held the all-time high after running for 314 yards against Illinois in 1995.
The Buckeyes have so far had a monopoly on the Big Ten’s freshman of the week award as quarterback C.J. Stroud previously received the recognition in each of the first two weeks.
