Anttaj Hawthorne and Brett Bell shared Wisconsin's team defensive player of the week honors Monday.
Hawthorne, a senior defensive tackle, had five tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery in the Badgers' 24-13 win over Ohio State Saturday. This marks the second consecutive week he has shared the team defensive honor.
Bell contributed six tackles (tied for the team high) and a forced fumble. He was part of a secondary that limited Ohio State quarterback Justin Zwick to 15 of 31 passing for 125 yards. The Buckeyes longest pass play went for just 16 yards.
Hawthorne and Bell were each part of a defense that held Ohio State to just 224 yards total offense, including a mere 49 in the second half. The Buckeyes lost three yards rushing after halftime.
