Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday.
This is Tagovailoa’s third time receiving the honor in his career, having previously been selected twice in 2020.
Against the Hoosiers, the senior completed 24 of 34 passes for 352 yards and a career-high five passing touchdowns. He also added a 19-yard rushing score in a performance that earned him the highest grade from Pro Football Focus of any quarterback in a Power Five conference.

Tagovailoa also surpassed 9,000 career passing yards during the game, making him the first Maryland quarterback to do so.
The program’s all-time leader in passing yards, completions, completion percentage and touchdowns will look to make more history next week when Maryland takes on No. 4 Ohio State, a team the Terps have never defeated.
