Matt McGloin Named Co-BIG Offensive Player of the Week

Matt McGloin’s record-setting Saturday against Indiana has resulted in the senior quarterback being named Co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.

McGloin completed 22 of 32 passes and threw for 4 touchdowns on a career high 395 passing yards. Three of those touchdowns went to sophomore wide receiver Allen Robinson while running back Zach Zwinak also hauled one in before halftime.

The signal-caller broke the school record for completions in a season (251), passing yards in a season (3066), and career passing touchdowns (45). With two touchdown passes this Saturday against Wisconsin, he will break Daryll Clark’s single-season record for passing touchdowns set in 2009.

McGloin has easily exceeded expectations this year, leading the conference in completions, passing yards, and touchdown passes. Despite several solid performances over the first eleven games of the season, this was McGloin’s first weekly award since taking home the honors after a 3 touchdown performance against Eastern Michigan in September 2011.

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner shares the award with McGloin after throwing for 3 touchdown and running for 3 more in a 42-17  victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes.
