Denard Robinson takes home another Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Award

Sandra Dukes-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has been named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for the ninth time in his Wolverines career, tying him with Ron Dayne for the conference record.

Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson has been named co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week along with Ohio State Buckeyes running back Carlos Hyde, the conference announced on Monday. The senior rebounded last Saturday against the Purdue Boilermakers after struggling badly in a loss to Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Sept. 22.

Having now been named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week nine times, Robinson is now tied with former Wisconsin Badgers running back Ron Dayne for the most in Big Ten history, as MLive's Nick Baumgardner notes. To tie Dayne, he torched the Boilermakers for 235 rushing yards, 105 passing yards and one touchdown through the air.

Despite this week's success, this season has been a mixed bag for Michigan's star quarterback. Robinson has had huge games against Purdue, Air Force and UMass this year, but he's also struggled badly against superior defenses from Alabama and Notre Dame.

Over the first five games of this season, Robinson has completed 54 percent of his passes for 942 yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions. He's also carried the ball 90 times for 676 yards and four touchdowns while leading the Wolverines to a 3-2 record.

Hyde, the player named with Robinson, rushed for 140 yards and four touchdowns in Ohio State's 63-38 beatdown of Nebraska.
