Devin Gardner gets second consecutive Big Ten honor

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Devin Gardner has picked up his second Big Ten honor in as many weeks.

He was named Big Ten co-offensive player of the week for his six touchdown performance Saturday.

The Michigan quarterback  passed for three touchdowns and rushed for three more in the Wolverines 42-17 win over Iowa.

Gardner started at quarterback with three-year starter Denard Robinson starting in the backfield. Gardner was 18-for-23 with 314 passing yards. He ran for 47 yards.

He became the sixth player in FBS since 2000 to throw for 300 yards, pass for three touchdowns and rush for three touchdowns.

The last Michigan player to score six touchdowns was Steve Smith in 1983.

Michigan plays Ohio State in Columbus Saturday. Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke said the quarterback situation is "still up in the air" as of Monday.
