Kenneth Walker III was a breakout star during Michigan State’s victory at defending B1G West champion Northwestern.

Walker III amassed 264 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 11.5 yards per carry in his first game at Michigan State after transferring from Wake Forest.

Michigan State coach Mel Tucker shared a touching moment he shared with Walker after the sensational performance.

Via MLive’s Matt Wenzel:

For his efforts, Walker was the Maxwell Award Player of the Week.

On the first play of the game, Walker burst free for a 75-yard touchdown. Walker added another three-yard touchdown in the first quarter, as well as a five-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and a six-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
