BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana senior wide receiver Ty Fryfogle was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week on Monday following Indiana's 24-0 win at Michigan State.

Fryfogle set career-highs with 11 catches for 200 yards, the seventh 200-yard game in program history, and the most in the Big Ten this season.

One of his two touchdown receptions was a career-long 65-yarder.

Fryfogle, from Lucedale, Mississippi, has caught at least one touchdown pass in three straight games and leads the Hoosiers with 24 catches for 424 yards and four touchdowns through four games.

The Hoosiers are ranked No. 9 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 10 in the Amway Coaches Poll presented by USA Today Sports heading into their visit to No. 3 Ohio State Saturday, Nov. 21.

The meeting with the Buckeyes will be Indiana's first regular-season game in program history that matches two top-ten teams. The only other such game in IU history was the 1968 Rose Bowl when No. 4 Indiana met No. 1 Southern California. O.J. Simpson was named the game's MVP as the Trojans won 14-3.
