Fryfogle earns B1G offensive player of the week honors

Indiana receiver Ty Fryfogle’s 200-yard day at Michigan State has earned him Big Ten offensive player of the week honors.

The 6-foot-2, 214-pound receiver from Lucedale, Miss., accumulated 178 of those yards in the first half, which set a new career high. That was also the most receiving yards in a half by a Big Ten receiver since 2010, when Michigan’s Roy Roundtree racked up 192 yards versus Illinois. 

In the previous week, Fryfogle racked up a then-career-high 142 yards versus Michigan, all in the first half. Fryfogle’s 11 total catches and two touchdowns at MSU were also personal bests, and his 65-yard touchdown reception was the longest of his career.

With Saturday’s effort, Fryfogle became just the seventh receiver in program history to snag 200-plus yards receiving in a single game, as well as the first since Ricky Jones in 2106.

Fryfogle already has 24 catches for 424 yards and four touchdowns on the season. He posted career-best marks of 45 catches for 605 yards last season, along with three scores.

No. 9 IU (4-0) matches up with No. 3 Ohio State (3-0) this week in Columbus, Ohio.


  1. Fryfogle has been very good the past two games and has helped develop a good one two punch with Whop. The best thing for IU is there are other receivers IU can turn to if defenses can slow down those two. Fryfogle shows that ratings aren’t the best judge of talent as he was just a 2 star coming out of HS.

    1. Good points. It is time to recognize that the IU receivers are not just above average, but are exceptional on a National basis! There is no other team in the B1G that is better!

  2. Ratings in high school talent are not the only prerequisite for success. However, play the percentages and higher ratings are going to win out especially in the overall long term….OSU, Bama, Clemson, ND, etc.

    1. IU only plays OSU! Great to compare IU recruits to the top 4 programs in college football. Great progress Coach Allen and staff!
