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.

Big Ten Football Trophy (photo by Micah Jones)

The Big Ten Conference has taken Joe Paterno’s name off their football championship trophy.

Jim Delaney, conference commissioner announced earlier today (Monday) that it would be “inappropriate” to keep Paterno’s name on the trophy that will be awarded on December 3, which will be the night of the Big Ten’s first title game.

Penn State fired Paterno last week amid allegations of child six-abuse involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

The trophy will now be named the Stagg Championship Trophy.

The trophy had been named the Stagg-Paterno Championship Trophy. Amos Alonzo Stagg won 319 games in 57 years. Paterno’s 409 wins are the most by any major college coach.
