Another week in the books and another Ohio State player has been honored with player of the week honors by the Big Ten Conference. This week it is Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud getting the call as he led the Ohio State offense to a rout of Toledo on Saturday night to the tune of 77-21.
Stroud was sharp in his passing with a 22-27 night where he threw for five touchdowns and 367 yards in less than a full night’s work. The Buckeyes would go on to rack up 763 yards of total offense, the second highest total in program history. The Buckeyes would also go on to score touchdowns on the team’s first seven possessions of the game.
Saturday’s game would mark the 4th time that Stroud would finish a game with better than an 80-percent completion percentage and he would also grade out with a 256.8 passing efficiency mark, the second highest of his career.
For the season, Stroud leads the nation in touchdown passes (11) while checking in second in passing efficiency (208.6).
Stroud was last named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week in November of 2021. Ohio State also won the B1G Offensive Player of the Week award last week with Marvin Harrison Jr.
Other B1G award winners this week include Penn State’s Jy’Ayir Brown (Defense), Indiana’s Charles Campbell (Special Teams) and Penn State’s Nicholas Singleton (Freshman).
