Gallon was named Big 10 offensive player of the week with his 184 yard, 3 touchdown performance vs Notre Dame.  

Also, MSU DE Shilique Calhoun was the defensive player of the week after scoring 2 defensive touchdowns (thats the MSU offense, sadly), and Marcus Jones (Minny) and Akeem Hunt (Purdue) shared the special teams player of the week honors after returning kickoffs for touchdowns this week.

Not a big surprise, but Denard Robinson has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against Indiana.  This is the third award in five weeks for DRob.  According to Scott Chipman of the Big Ten:

BigTenScott @nicoleauerbach Big Ten record for offensive POW in a season is five, set by OSU QB Troy Smith when he won Heisman in 2006.

Add this distinction to the list of records or honors that DRob is on pace to set.

MSU WR/KR/PR Keshawn Martin was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against Wisconsin in which he compiled 190 all-purpose yards, including a 74-yard punt return TD.  Obviously defending Martin and his return game is a major key for Michigan against MSU on Saturday.


[Edit: Crazy DRob stat of the day]

BigTenScott BIG TEN NOTES: MICH QB Denard Robinson ranks third in Big Ten history for single-season rushing yards by a QB - after just five games

BigTenScott One more note on Denard Robinson - his 905 rushing yards trails only IND's Antwaan Randle El, who had 1,270 in 2000 and 964 in 2001.
