Aidan Hutchinson is PFF’s Defensive Player of the Week.

Probably pretty predictable considering the week the Michigan edge rusher just had. In beating Ohio State 42-27 on Saturday and ending an 8-game losing streak to their hated rivals, the Wolverines saw Hutchinson put forth one of the best individual defensive efforts of the season.

The senior defender had 3 sacks and 7 tackles. According to PFF’s numbers, Hutchinson had 15 total pressures, a 31% pass-rush win rate, and a 91.0 pass-rush grade. His 15 pressures were the most by a player in a game since PFF started tracking data in 2014 and more than any single team against the Buckeyes in 2021, according to PFF.

Hutchinson was also the top edge rusher on the team of the week.

It was a special moment for the Michigan program, and for Hutchinson, who talked during the week leading up about playing the Buckeyes absent fear and said after the game it was the best moment of his life.

Hutchinson and the Wolverines will look to keep the momentum rolling when they play Iowa for the Big Ten championship on Saturday, Dec. 4, at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.

Iowa’s Tyler Linderbaum also made the PFF Team of the Week as the top center following Iowa’s 28-21 win over Nebraska.
