Ohio State football: Dwayne Haskins, Chase Young win Big Ten honors for play at Penn State

Dwayne Haskins struggled in the first half of the Buckeyes amazing 27-26 come from behind win, but the Ohio State quarterback rallied his troops and once again earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors following his gutsy performance.
