Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan's Devin Gardner was named Co-Player of the Week after a big performance against Iowa.

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner was named Big Ten Offensive Co-Player of the Week on Monday. Gardner was given the award along with Penn State's Matt McGloin.

Gardner had a huge game against Iowa both through the air and on the ground. He completed 18-of-23 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns, but also rushed for three scores and 37 yards. Gardner became the first Michigan quarterback to account for six touchdowns in a game since Steve Smith accomplished the feat in 1983.

Making just his third start at quarterback this season, Gardner got off to a fast start, leading Michigan to a touchdown on each of its first six offensive possessions. He set a season-high in passing yards, completion percentage, passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns. His 227.3 passer rating was the second-highest of any Michigan quarterback this season.

Gardner shared the award with McGloin, who threw for 395 yards and four touchdowns in Penn State's 45-22 win against Indiana.
