Ohio State football: Kenny Guiton, Ryan Shazier Big Ten Players of the Week

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The hits keep on coming, and two Buckeyes are getting some formal recognition after their excellence against the Golden Bears

After Ohio State took over Memorial Stadium and blitzed the California Golden Bears 52-34, you would expect some additional recognition outside of the chorus of Buckeye fans singing the team's praises. The Big Ten Conference didn't disappoint, naming Ryan Shazier and Kenny Guiton their Players of the Week. Not bad for Guiton's first ever start, huh?

Guiton completed 21-of-32 passes and 4 touchdown strikes, including a three touchdown blitz in the first six minutes of the game, burying the Bears before they even had a chance to get the Bear Raid up and running. The highlight was probably his 90 yard bomb to Devin Smith, which was only the longest play from scrimmage in Ohio State's storied history. Again, this was Guiton's *first start*.

Shazier lead the Buckeyes with 12 tackles, 10 solo tackles, while forcing a fumble and recording a sack. While the Buckeyes did give up 34 points, Shazier and company held Cal to 100 yards below their passing average. This is Shazier's 3rd B1G Player of the Week honor.

The last Buckeye to grab Offensive Player of the Week was Carlos Hyde, on October 8th, 2012. John Simon was the last Buckeye to earn Defensive honors, on Nov 19th, 2012.

Congrats to both Buckeyes on an outstanding Week 3 performance.
