DaeSean Hamilton, Saquon Barkley Earn Big Ten Player Of The Week Honors

Nittany Lions took home a pair of Big Ten Player of the Week nods for their performances in the cruise-control win over Indiana.

Saquon Barkley is a Big Ten Player of the Week for the fifth time in his career and third time this season, but it’s his first time receiving the conference’s honor for special teams performance.

Barkley returned the opening kickoff 98 yards for the touchdown, the first special teams touchdown of his Penn State career, and also racked up 221 all-purpose yards to increase his national lead in the stat.

DaeSean Hamilton had a career day to secure his spot as Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week. The senior wide receiver hauled in nine catches for 122 yards and three touchdowns for his first multi-touchdown game of his career.

He also broke Penn State’s career reception record, surpassing Deon Butler, after hauling in 181 catches through four seasons with the Nittany Lions.

To top off the 45-14 victory, the duo combined for a touchdown — Barkley tossing 16 yards to Hamilton for the score.
