Roman Hemby has been on an absolute tear this season, and he showcased that in full display on Saturday, earning Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors in the process. After helping the Terps comeback against Indiana, Hemby put up a career-high 179 rushing yards and three touchdowns in a 34-27 win against Northwestern.

Hemby put up ridiculous numbers against the Wildcats, including a 75-yard long run late in the fourth quarter, as well as 10 forced broken tackles, the most out of any running back in the Power Five this week.

This is Hemby’s second Big Ten Freshman of the Week award. His first came after he rushed for over 100 yards and 2 touchdowns in Maryland's season opener against Buffalo.

Hemby has racked up 679 rush yards, 239 receiving yards and eight total touchdowns in eight games. He has a chance to receive Freshman All-American honors, along with his teammate Jaishawn Barham.

Going into the bye, the Terps will need Hemby’s talent to compete with the Badgers when they travel to Wisconsin on Nov. 5.
