For his dominant performance Saturday, Nick Bosa was listed as a part of the Pro Football Focus Defensive Team of the Week.
Earlier this week, Nick Bosa was named to the Pro Football Focus Defensive Team of the Week, and Wednesday he added to that — being recognized as the Bednarik Award’s Player of the Week.
The junior defensive-end had a dominating performance Saturday against Oregon State. He had two sacks, two fumble recoveries (one of which went for a TD), and numerous quarterback hurries.
Bosa is already on the Bednarik preseason watch list that goes to college football’s best defender annually, and this does nothing but enhance his profile.
Though he missed out on the conference’s defensive player of the week, Bosa can take gratification in knowing that he’s been recognized nationally in a couple of spots now.
We’ll go out on a limb here and say that it won’t be the last time he’s singled out.
Ohio State takes on Rutgers at 3:30 PM Saturday.
