Ohio State's Braxton Miller, Cameron Johnston named B1G players of the week

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

For the third consecutive week a Buckeye quarterback has received top conference honors. Freshman punter Cam Johnston made a name for himself on Saturday as well in a spectacular performance on special teams.

Ohio State hosted WIsconsin is what was the biggest, and toughest, game up the year up to this point in prime time on Saturday night. Questions flowed leading up to the game, all being about whether the better option would be to go with Braxton Miller, who now has a 15 game win streak as a starting QB, or the fifth year senior Kenny Guiton. Well, those questions should be put to rest after Braxton Miller was named Big Ten offensive player of the week.

Miller completed 17-25 passes for 198 yards and four touchdowns while also adding 83 on the ground. This stellar play will have to keep up as the Buckeyes hit the road next week when they take on a stingy Northwestern team.

On the other side of things, joining Miller with an award of his own was punter Cameron Johnston, earning Big Ten special teams player of the week honors. Johnston's award was well deserved as he was able to pin Wisconsin on or at the 10 yard line five times.

Other award winners this week:

Defensive player of the week - James Morris, Iowa

Freshman of the week - Aaron Bailey, Illinois
