Minnesota Golden Gophers wide receiver Tyler Johnson has been named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week after recording 10 receptions for 140 yards and three touchdowns in the Gophers’ 35-32 victory over Georgia Southern.

Johnson shares the honor with Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins, who rushed for 193 yards and one touchdown against Indiana to go along with a 14-yard touchdown reception.

This is the first Big Ten Player of the Week recognition of Johnson’s career.
