Released this morning by IU:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Kellen Lewis picked up his fifth career Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor, the conference announced Monday morning. Lewis shared the award with Illinois quarterback Juice Williams. Lewis is the first Hoosier since current Washington Redskin Antwaan Randle El (six from 1998-2001) to earn five conference POWâ€ˆhonors.
Randle El and Anthony Thompson (1986-89) hold the IU record with six Big Ten weekly accolades. Wisconsinâ€™s Ron Dayne (1996-99) holds the league record with nine Player of the Week awards.
Lewis and the Hoosiers knocked off Western Kentucky, 31-13, in the teamâ€™s season opener on Saturday. With his 11-yard touchdown pass to Ray Fisher against Western Kentucky, the junior topped Antwaan Randle El on the schoolâ€™s career passing touchdown list. Lewis would add a second TD later in the ballgame to give him 44 for his career, passing Randle Elâ€™s total of 42. He finished the day completing 17-of-27 for 144 yards.
To go along with his two TDs and 144 yards through the air, Kellen Lewis went over 100 yards rushing for the third time in his career. He finished with 185 yards on nine carries in the game, the fifth-highest rushing total by an IU quarterback in school history. Randle El had three games with more rushing yards and Lewis ran for 199 against Akron last year. The nine carries tied for the fewest by a 100-yard rusher in IU history, matching Josiah Searsâ€™ nine carries for 100 yards against Wisconsin in 2006.
Lewisâ€™ 75-yard TD run in the first quarter was a career long and it was the first TD run of 70 yards or more by a Hoosier since Levron Williams broke off an 80 yarder against Michigan State on Nov. 10, 2001. He added a 62-yard TD run in the fourth for his third-career two-touchdown game on the ground. He became the first player in IU history to record two 60-plus yard TD rushes in a single game.
