COLUMBUS, Ohio – For the second week in a row, Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud has been selected as the Big Ten’s Freshman of the Week, the conference office announced this morning.

Stroud, making his second career start and first at Ohio Stadium, completed 35-of-54 passes on Saturday vs. Oregon for 484 yards and three touchdowns. His yardage total is the second most in a single game in school history, topped only by Dwayne Haskins’ 499-yard performance in the 2018 Big Ten Championship Game versus Northwestern. Stroud’s 35 completions are also the second most in a single game, as were his 54 attempts.

Through two games, Stroud leads the Big Ten and ranks among the top five nationally in passing TDs (seven), passing yards (778) and yards per game (389.0). He’s also 20th in passing efficiency (174.3).

Stroud and the rest of the Buckeyes, who are ranked ninth this weekend in the Associated Press poll, host Tulsa at 3:30 Saturday at Ohio Stadium. To purchase tickets and/or for more information on Ohio State football tickets, visit http://go.osu.edu/FBTix.
