Pro Football Focus gives grades to each player in every game on Saturdays and Week 8’s Team of the Week has been announced.

Four players from the Big Ten made PFF’s team, led by two from Nebraska. Here’s what PFF’s Steve Palazzolo had to say about each B1G player:

Offensive tackle: Brendon Mahon, Penn State 87.6 and Garrett Bolles, Utah 85.7

Mahon returns to the team after a strong performance in Penn State’s upset over Ohio State. The right tackle did his best work creating movement in the run game with an 87.5 grade, and he didn’t allow a pressure on 33 dropbacks.

Linebacker: Dedrick Young II, Nebraska 90.6; Anthony Walker, Northwestern 89.9; Ty Schwab, Boston College 89.1

Young put together his third straight strong week, as he broke up a pass and finished with a career-high seven stops. Walker was all over the field, with his eight stops and four hurries leading the way to his best game of the season.

Safety: Tedric Thompson, Colorado 89.2 and Kieron Williams, Nebraska 87.2

Williams had two interceptions of his own along with a pass defensed and two hurries as a rusher in his best game of an up-and-down season.
