Fryfogle a back-to-back winner of B1G offensive player of the week

For the second week in a row, Indiana receiver Ty Fryfogle is the Big Ten’s offensive player of the week.

This honor comes after Fryfogle posted his second 200-yard receiving game in a row. He’s the first player in conference history to do so. He’s the first Hoosier to win back-to-back offensive player of the week awards since quarterback Nate Sudfeld in 2015.

Fryfogle, the 6-foot-2, 214-pound senior from Lucedale, Miss., had seven catches for 218 yards in a 42-35 loss at Ohio State, with 184 of those yards coming in the second half. His 218 yards were the third-highest total ever versus the Buckeyes.
 
Fryfogle scored touchdowns of 63, 56 and 33 yards in the contest at OSU, which made him the first Hoosier since James Hardy (Sept. 1, 2007) to score a pair of 50-yarders.

The Big Ten’s current leader in receiving yards with 642, Fryfogle was added to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List last week. His 560 yards in three games are the most in such a stretch in IU history.

  1. Good to see Fryfogle getting this recognition again. He has had two great weeks in the B1G and a good season so far. He is on his way to having the best season for a receiver in Hoosier history.

  2. Yes, Ty will play on Sundays…and he’ll go higher in the draft than many think. It was just announced that the IU-OSU telecast was watched by more people than ANY single event on TV for the entire year. As a result, we would like to think with the positive coverage, LEO etc. that aspiring, undecided top shelf high school offensive linemen would suddenly give IU a look. I’d like to think with a ‘wave’ of positivity this would do the trick. History tells us otherwise. Hope Hiller proves me wrong.

  3. Brad I am with you hoping the past two season bring better OL players to IU but I am not sure better players are needed to have a much better running game. I don’t know the real problem but right now I am guessing it is more scheme than anything as we are not seeing much variation in the run game. If the players are lacking then it would explain the lack of production but only the coaches know for sure. I just know coach Allen needs to make a serious look at the issue of the poor running game and make what changes need to be made.
