Roberson named Big Ten player of the week

Tre Roberson earned his first career Big Ten player of the week honor after his record-setting performance in the 56-36 win over Purdue Saturday in the Old Oaken Bucket game.

Indiana sophomore quarterback Tre Roberson has been rewarded for his big season-ending day against Purdue.

The sophomore quarterback from Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis was named the Big Ten offensive player of the week Monday, two days after leading the Hoosiers to a 56-36 victory over Purdue in the Old Oaken Bucket game at Memorial Stadium.

Roberson threw for 273 yards and six touchdowns against the Boilers. The six TDs tied an Indiana school record that has stood since 1943.

Roberson also ran for a career-high 154 yards. The combined total gave him a career-high 427 yards of total offense, too.

Roberson is the second IU player to claim the award in the last four weeks. Tevin Coleman also was named Big Ten offensive player of the week on Nov. 11.
