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

It's the first time Latimer has won the award. He's the first Hoosier since quarterback Ben Chappell on Sept. 20, 2010, to receive the honor.

Latimer had seven catches for 113 yards and three touchdowns in Indiana's 24-21 victory against Iowa on Saturday.
