Ringer wins third-straight Big Ten POW

Well, you’re going to hear a lot about Javon Ringer this week.

Not that you’ve exactly forgotten about him. He did run for 203 yards and two touchdowns when Michigan State blasted Indiana 52-27 last year.

Anyway, here’s a release from the Big Ten saying that Ringer has been named Player of the Week for a third consecutive week, becoming the first offensive player ever to do so.


Ringer became the first player in school history to record back-to-back 200-yard rushing games when he racked up 201 yards on 39 carries with a pair of touchdowns in a win over Notre Dame. With Michigan State holding a narrow 16-7 lead in the fourth quarter, the senior running back carried the ball seven straight times for 77 yards, including a 63-yard burst to set up his second score and secure the 23-7 victory. Ringer becomes the first offensive player in Big Ten history to earn at least a share of three straight conference weekly accolades. The only other individual to accomplish that feat was Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny, who was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for three straight weeks in 2005 (Sept. 26, Oct. 3 and 10). Ringer now has four career weekly laurels, as he was also honored on Oct. 15, 2007.


  1. I hope I’m wrong, but I think there is a really good chance he wins it again this weekend. Hopefully he doesn’t run all over IU.

  2. Dude, its gonna be a difficult game to watch. If we can’t run the ball on BSU we are about to be in big, big trouble…
