Ohio State Buckeyes running back TreVeyon Henderson was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Monday, and he also won the conference’s co-player of the week award.

Henderson ran for 277 yards and three touchdowns Saturday in a 41-20 victory against Tulsa at Ohio Stadium. He broke Ohio State’s single-game freshman rushing record of 239 yards, which was set by Archie Griffin in 1972.

Henderson ranks third in the Big Ten with 346 rushing yards.

Ohio State has won the freshman award in each of the first three weeks. Quarterback C.J. Stroud was honored the last two weeks.
