The University of Pittsburgh recently hired Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst as its new head coach and they hope he sticks around for a long time.

The 46-year-old Chryst will be the Panthers fourth head coach in the last 13 months with Dave Wannstedt, Mike Haywood and Todd Graham before him.

He replaces the most-recent coach in Graham who left to take the Arizona State job.

Chryst made the Wisconsin Badgers into an offensive powerhouse since joining the program in 2005. This season, the Badgers ranked fourth in scoring with 44.6 points per game and winning the Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl spot.

Pitt will be playing in the BBVA Compass Bowl against SMU on January 7 with Keith Peterson serving as the interim coach.

Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier has been selected the Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Week. The conference announced the honor based on Shazier’s personal-best 15-tackle performance Saturday against Penn State.

Shazier (pronounced shay-ZEER) making his first collegiate start, had a game-high seven solo tackles to go along with eight assists. The 15 tackles represents the most by a Buckeye since linebacker Ross Homan accumulated 15 in 2009 against Wisconsin. The last Buckeye to top 15 tackles was linebacker James Laurinaitis, who had 17 in a 2007 game against the Badgers.

Shazier is the second Buckeye to earn freshman of the week accolades this season. Braxton Miller was honored after his big game vs. Wisconsin.

Shazier, a 6’2, 212-pounder from Plantation (Florida) High School, now has 39 tackles on the season, including five tackles for loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles. He also blocked a punt that led to a touchdown in the win over Wisconsin.

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE PREVIEW: Purdue’s Holland & Short will try to stop OSU running attack

Kawann Short

The Purdue Boilermakers defense last week allowed Wisconsin RB Montee Ball to rush for 223 yards while the Badgers offense racked up 364 rushing yards and 605 total in that 62-17 debacle.

This week, it will not get any easier as the Boilermakers will be facing Ohio State’s three-headed running attack of Daniel Herron, Carlos Hyde and QB Braxton Miller will be arriving in Ross-Ade Stadium. They’ll have to pick their poison on who to stop.

The Purdue defense allows 26.4 points per game and only the Hoosiers allow more rushing yards per game in the Big Ten as we saw last week.

The Boilermakers do have a couple of players that the Buckeyes will have to watch, LB Joe Holland and DT Kawann Short. Holland is 19th in school history with 297 career tackles. Short is one of the best in the Big Ten at DT as his 12.5 tackles for a loss ranks fourth.

Another player to watch on the Purdue defense is CB Ricardo Allen, who has three interceptions and has returned one for a touchdown.

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes try to overcome past troubles at Ross-Ade Stadium

The Ohio State Buckeyes (6-3, 3-2) quest for the Leaders Division title and Big Ten Championship Game continues this week as they travel to West Lafayette, Indiana to take on the Purdue Boilermakers (4-5, 2-3) at noon ET at Ross-Ade Stadium (62,500).

The Buckeyes and Boilermakers have met 52 times on the gridiron, and OSU leads the series 37-12-2, 12-7 in all games at Purdue. Although, Purdue has won three of the last five games played at Ross-Ade Stadium. The most recent win was the 26-18 debacle in 2009.

The Boilermakers can be a dangerous team just as Indiana was last week. Purdue has upset Illinois and lost to Penn State by five points.

However, last Saturday, head coach Danny Hope and Purdue had a slow start at Wisconsin and they paid for it with an embarrassing 62-17 loss. The 62 points are the most ever given up by the Boilers defense.

Special teams could play a big role in this game.

OSU placekicker Drew Basil has now connected on 12 straight field goals.

Boilermakers punter Cody Webster leads the Big Ten in averaging 45.5 yards per punt.

Wide receiver Raheem Mostert is dangerous on kick returns. He is second in the Big Ten with 31.6 yards per return and picked up 206 return yards against the Badgers last week.

Braxton Miller named Big Ten Freshman of the Week

Braxton Miller, who is improving every game is starting to get noticed on the national level after his performances against Nebraska, Illinois and Wisconsin.

Miller was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week after his performance against the Wisconsin Badgers.

The freshman from Huber Heights Wayne High School has played in seven games for Ohio State this season with five starts, completing 33 of 62 passes for 492 yards with six TD’s and one interception. He also has rushed 80 times for 342 yards. He totaled 186 yards of offense at #14 Nebraska through two and a half quarters before leaving the game with an ankle injury and had 188 in the win over Wisconsin.
