Vonn Bell named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after Pick 6

A Silver Bullet is earning conference respect.

Ohio State's Vonn Bell had a great game on Saturday against Minnesota under the lights, racking up a Pick Six and double digit tackles on the outing. Bell has been a consistent contributor the the Buckeyes defense and has cemented his role as a Silver Bullet. This week he earned Big Ten honors for his performance against the Gophers, in what could be a career-season for the safety.

With the score tied at zero, Bell was able to give the Buckeyes a momentum shift to finally get some points on the board. This was his second 10 tackle game of the year, the first coming against Northern Illinois, and his Pick 6 was his second touchdown of the season following a fumble recovery for a touchdown against Hawaii.
