Hyde, Roby and Bosa claim Big Ten Honors
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKRC) -- Determined and exceptional efforts by the Ohio State Buckeyes in the 40-30 comeback victory over No. 15/16 Northwestern on the road Saturday night earned three individuals Big Ten Conference weekly honors this week: Carlos Hyde shared the conferences offensive player of the week award with Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah; All-American cornerback Bradley Roby was the special teams player of the week; and defensive lineman Joey Bosa earned the Big Tens freshman of the week award.
Hyde, from Naples, Fla., rushed for a career-high 168 yards with three second-half touchdowns to power Ohio State back from a 23-13 third-quarter deficit. He also caught four passes for 38 yards for a total of 206 all-purpose yards.
