IU’s Scott the B1G offensive POTW

Indiana sophomore running back Stevie Scott has been named the Big Ten’s offensive player of the week for his performance against Northwestern.

Scott accumulated 136 all-purpose yards and a career-high three touchdowns in a 34-3 win over the Wildcats. This is Scott’s first Big Ten offensive player of the week honor, though he was a freshman of the week twice last season.

After some initial struggles running the ball this season, the Hoosier running game has gotten going the last few weeks. Scott has rushed for 100 yards in three of IU’s last four games, including his 116 yards versus the Wildcats. He also had a 20-yard reception for a touchdown, taking a swing pass the distance.

On the season, Scott ranks fourth in the Big Ten with 737 rushing yards on 148 carries (5 ypc) and nine touchdowns.

The Syracuse, N.Y., native already has 19 touchdowns in his IU career, which ranks ninth in program history. His nine career 100-yard games places him 10th on the Hoosiers’ all-time list.

  1. Hats off to Stevie Scott and the OL this week! It’s been a really fun season thus far and I’m excited as ever about the future of IUFB.

  2. Scott is fun to watch and he deserves this recognition. He delivers the blow when making contact with the defenders, and he can catch the ball and block on blitzes. he developing into a complete running back. Given that he is only a true sophomore running behind a young O-line, his production is most impressive. My guess is that he will carry the ball in the NFL in a couple of years.
