Michigan St. running back Le'Veon Bell was given his second Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Eastern Michigan.

Four weeks into the season and Michigan St. running back Le'Veon Bell has his second weekly award. The Spartans announced, via their official website, that bell was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week following his performance against Eastern Michigan on Saturday. Bell also won the award in Week 1 after a strong performance against nationally ranked Boise State.

Bell carried the ball a whopping 36 times for rushed for a career high of 253 yards against Eastern Michigan on Saturday. Not only was it a career high, but it was the sixth highest single game rushing yardage recorded in MSU history. It's Bell's second 200-yard rushing game and his sixth game with over 100 yards. The aforementioned game against Boise State was the second 200-yard performance, as he managed to put up 210 yards in the MSU win.

Against Eastern Michigan, Bell was really the only reason that the Spartans managed a victory. Time and time again their offense stalled, but it was Bell who moved the chains and converted those tough third downs. He didn't manage to find the end zone until the very end of the game though, but was still the only reason the Spartans were able to avoid the upset.
