Michigan State senior wide receiver Aaron Burbridge has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday.
The Farmington Hills, Michigan, native set career highs for receptions (8), receiving yards (156) and touchdown catches (3) in Michigan State’s 35-21 victory over Air Force on Sept. 19 in Spartan Stadium.
Burbridge’s three TD receptions tied MSU’s single-game record (last player: B.J. Cunningham vs. Wisconsin, 2011 Big Ten Championship Game), and it also marked Burbridge’s third-straight 100-yard receiving game.
This marks the first time a Spartan has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week since Jeremy Langford on Oct. 14, 2013.
