Indiana Hoosiers quarterback Nate Sudfield has reportedly been named the co-Big Ten Freshman of the Week, according to a press release made by the team. Sudfield won it alongside with Penn State defensive end Deion Barnes.
Sudfield, who hails from California, is the first player since Tre Roberson in 2011 to win such an honor as a member of the Hoosiers. Sudfield played well filling in for backup quarterback Cameron Coffman, who was filling in for Roberson after it was announced he was out for the rest of the season with a broken ankle.
Coffman would then get injured during Saturday’s loss to the Ball State Cardinals after injuring his hip, according to reports. Sudfield did all he could, going 13-of-20 for 172 yards and two touchdowns but it wasn’t enough as IU lost, 41-39. The impressive part of his statistics from Saturday night is that all of those were recorded in the fourth quarter!
Congratulations to Nate! He is well deserved of it!
