Bell racked up his third 200-yard game of the season Saturday.

Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell was named the Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Bell earned the honor after running all over the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday. Bell carried the ball 35 times for 266 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 7.6 yards per carry during the game.

His effort Saturday was his third 200-yard game of the season. In the season opener against Boise State, Bell rushed for 210 yards and two touchdowns. On Sept. 22 against Eastern Michigan, he rushed for 253 yards on 36 carries.

Saturday's 26-10 win capped a fantastic regular season for the junior running back out of Ohio. He finished the year with 1,648 yards and 11 touchdowns on 350 carries. He averaged 127 yards per game and 4.7 yards per carry.

Those numbers trumped his sophomore year marks. Last season, he had 948 yards and 13 touchdowns on 182 carries.
