Aidan Hutchinson was arguably the best player of his college career on Saturday, and is being rewarded by the Big Ten for that.
The conference named Hutchinson, a senior defensive end, player of the week after his seven-tackle three-sack performance in the 21-17 victory over Penn State.
Hutchinson now sticks to the sacks of his teammate, David Ojabo, this season (10) as a future prospect.
The Wolverines were led by seven sacks and a season-high four sacks per game for the new year. The native had 3 1/2 tackles against Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford, who faced pressure from Hutchinson and the rest of the defense all game long. The Ojabo added two sacks himself while the Wolverines racked up his season-high seven sacks.
Hutchinson is only the fourth player in the history of the nation to record three sacks in a game since 2000, and first to do that since Josh Uche in 2019. The weekly nod is Hutchinsons first this season and second time of his career.
The Senior Bowl, the annual annual prospect game for seniors, named his defensive player of the week, and also named defensive player of the week.
Two games left on the schedule, including Saturdays play against Maryland (3:30-pm), Big Ten Network (Tom) and Tom (Meers), are currently on the high of the rankings.
