Big Ten honors pair of Buckeyes; another Ohio State football game time set

Another Ohio State football game time has been set.

Ohio State will play Maryland at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 14 in College Park, Md.

The Big Ten Network will broadcast the game, which will be the first day game for the Buckeyes since they opened the season with a noon contest against Nebraska.

Ohio State’s win at Penn State last week and its home game against Rutgers this week are both 7:30 kickoffs.

The regular season finale at home against Michigan is set for a noon kickoff with the rest of the game times to be determined.

Two Buckeyes honored by conference

Quarterback Justin Fields and defensive tackle Tommy Togiai are among the weekly honorees by the Big Ten.

Fields is the conference’s co-offensive player of the week after throwing for 318 yards and four touchdowns against Penn State on Saturday night. He shares the honor with Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagoviiloa, who threw for 394 yards and accounted for five touchdowns for the Terps as they rallied to beat Minnesota on Friday night.

Although Fields was the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year last year, he was never named player of the week.

Togiai is the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after logging seven tackles, including three sacks, against the Nittany Lions.

He was also so honored for the first time.

Penn State game “champions" announced

Fields and Togiai were among the 24 players who graded out as “champions" against Penn State, the school announced late Monday afternoon.

Joining Fields on offense were running backs Trey Sermon and Master Teague, tight ends Luke Farrell, Jeremy Ruckert and Jake Hausmann, receivers Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams and Chris Olave (offensive player of the game) and offensive linemen Josh Myers, Wyatt Davis, Nicholas Petit-Frere, Harry Miller and Thayer Munford.

On defense, Togiai and fellow linemen Jonathon Cooper, Haskell Garrett, Zach Harrison and Tyreke Smith graded out as champions along with linebackers Tuf Borland, Pete Werner and Baron Browning and safeties Marcus Hooker and Josh Proctor.

Tight end Cade Stover was picked special teams player of the game.
