3 B1G stars land on PFF Team of the Week following B1G's Week 7
Nebraska head coach Scott Frost and offensive coordinator Matt Lubick met after the Huskers 21-13 loss to Northwestern earlier this season and made a decision to get Wan’Dale Robinson the ball more
Since that time, the sophomore receiver has cleared the 100 all-purpose yards mark in three games.
In Saturday’s 37-27 Nebraska win over Purdue, Robinson had 119 yards on 11 touches, with nine receptions. His performance earned him a spot on PFF’s College Football Team of the Week.
A pair of other B1G players were recognized for the performances on Saturday, with Indiana cornerback Taiwan Mullen, and Wisconsin left tackle Cole Van Lanen each earning the weekly honor.
Mullen and the Indiana defense held the powerful Wisconsin offense to just two field goals during their 14-6 win. Mullen sacked Badgers quarterback Graham Mertz late in the first quarter, causing a fumble that was recovered by linebacker James Miller at the Indiana 47.
For Van Lanen, it was a tough day for the Badgers offense, but he still graded out strongly for his work against a tough Indiana front.
Hopefully the B1G gets all seven games played in Week 8 and some star performances to discuss from those matchups.
