Lewis named Big Ten POW again

Indiana’s Kellen Lewis has been named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week, along with Wisconsin RB P.J. Hill. It’s the second time this season and the fourth-time in his career that Lewis had received conference player of the week honors.

Here’s what today’s release from the Big Ten has to say about Lewis:


Kellen Lewis, Indiana, SO, QB, Jacksonville, Fla./Mandarin

Lewis completed an astounding 73.1 percent of his passes for a career-best 322 yards with three touchdown strikes, including one to himself after he picked up a fumble and sprinted for a score, to lead Indiana to its first road victory at Iowa since 1999. The sophomore quarterback completed 19 of 26 passes on the day, including scoring tosses of 39 and four yards to stake the Hoosiers to an early 14-0 lead. Lewis boosted the advantage to 21-0 on an amazing play in the second quarter, completing an eight-yard pass to Josiah Sears before he fumbled. Lewis was trailing the play and snagged the ball in full stride, blazing 71 yards down the sideline for the touchdown. The Florida native recorded his second career 300-yard game and tossed at least three touchdown passes for the fourth time in five games this season. Lewis collects his second offensive laurel this season and fourth of his career, after being honored two weeks ago on Sept. 17 and as a freshman on Oct. 16 and 30, 2006.
