Indiana's Sudfeld named Freshman of the Week

Indiana quarterback Nate Sudfeld earned co-Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday morning. Sudfeld shared the award with Penn State defensive end Deion Barnes.

The Modesto, Calif., native is the first Hoosier to win the award this year and the fourth since the start of the 2011 campaign. Running back D'Angelo Roberts (Sept. 19), kick returner Shane Wynn (Oct. 10) and quarterback Tre Roberson (Oct. 24) each collected the accolade last season.

Entering Saturday's game against Ball State for the injured Cameron Coffman, Sudfeld finished 13-of-20 for 172 yards to go along with two touchdowns. Sudfeld, who is the third true freshman quarterback to play at Indiana, compiled all his numbers in the fourth quarter. 

Trailing 38-25 with 4:07 remaining, he connected with Cody Latimer from 70 yards out and later put the Hoosiers ahead 39-38 when he found Shane Wynn for a 2-yard score with 49 seconds left. Sudfeld guided IU on a six-play, 77-yard drive in just 53 seconds on that final drive. He went 4-of-6 for 36 yards and distributed the ball to four different receivers.
