Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week this week after grabbing seven passes for 113 yards and three touchdowns in Indiana’s 24-21 win over Iowa on Saturday. He’s the first Indiana player since Ben Chappell in 2010 to win the honor.

From IU sports info:

LATIMER NAMED BIG TEN OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana sophomore wide receiver Cody Latimer earned co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday morning. Latimer shared the award with Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez.

 

The honor is the first of Latimer’s career and the first for a Hoosier since quarterback Ben Chappell on Sept. 20, 2010.

Latimer collected his second career 100-yard game, both this season, with 113 yards to go along with a career-high tying seven receptions and a career-high three touchdowns in Indiana’s 24-21 victory over Iowa on Saturday. His 30-yarder with 10:58 remaining provided the game-winning score.

The Dayton, Ohio, native became the first Hoosier with three TD catches since Tandon Doss recorded three at Purdue on Nov. 27, 2010. The three receiving scores are tied for the second-most in school history (10 times), trailing only James Hardy’s four (Michigan State on Oct. 28, 2006).

 

Latimer owns a team-best 645 yards, is second with 39 catches and 4.3 per game (10th in Big Ten), and is second with five scores, which is tied for fifth in the Big Ten. He paces the Hoosiers with 16.5 yards per reception and an average of 71.7 yards per game, which ranks fourth in the Big Ten.

Looking for its thirdconsecutive Big Ten victory, the Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3 Big Ten) close out their home schedule with a Leaders Division showdown against Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten), on Saturday, Nov. 10. Kickoff is set for noon EST at Memorial Stadium(52,929; FieldTurf) and ESPN2 will broadcast the game.

Congrats to Cody Latimer on the award. Congrats to AD Glass, Coach Wilson & staff, the student athletes and fans who braved some cool, damp conditions and came away with a 2nd consecutive W.
Hoosiers keep playing hard, learning from the mistakes and playing for the guys in that locker room.

Good for Cody. & good for us, Cody’s success this year is somewhat of a surprise, since her was not quite as heralded as most of our other recievers in the 2 deep, but as Cody is showing, sometimes that don’t mean squat!! I like our skilled players!!!! Cody, Kofi, Shane Wynn I thought was being under utilized, but with the depth of talent at th wideout position, it’s not so. Unfortunatel for Duwice Wilson, his knee injury a couple of years ago kinda’ got him lost in the shuffle, but make no mistake-Duwyce has as much talent as any of them. Long, rangey arms, enough speed to get behind the secondary, I thought he had potential to be our best reciever a couple of years ago. I still do, but luckily so do about 4 others!! I don’t want to get too cocky, but I’m telling you, with our returning starters & schedule next year, the rest of the leaders division had better look the (bleep) out!! Does anyone know if Ohio Satte & Penn State are ineligle for post-season play next year as well? I believe PSU is fo’ sho’, not sure about the Bucks.

Ohio State is eligible next year. Penn State has three more years under postseason ban.

Higgi, you might be right. Cody Latimer has the size and speed to make it in the NFL. He seems to have great hands, too. Let’s pray he stays healthy for the remainder of his time at IU and does not get lured way to the NFL before he is ready.
