Two Purdue players earn honors


A pair of Purdue football players earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors following the Boilermakers' 38-36 win over No. 19 Iowa, the conference announced Monday.

Wide receiver Terry Wright, who hauled in six passes for 146 yards and three touchdowns in the win, became the second Boiler in three weeks to win the Offensive Player of the Week Award, while kicker Spencer Evans earned the top special teams honor for the week by virtue of his game-winning kick to beat the Hawkeyes.
