KJ Hamler was a constant threat for Penn State against Michigan on Saturday.

The redshirt sophomore caught six balls for 108 yards and two touchdowns and, perhaps more important, salted the game away with a tough five-yard run to give the Nittany Lions the game-clinching first down.

For his efforts, Hamler has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.

Hamler now has a reception in all 20 of his career games and has become one of the most dangerous weapons in the country. The Wolverines tried to defend him one-on-one and were twice burned for deep touchdowns.

He becomes the first Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week since Sean Clifford on Sep. 30 following the Nittany Lions win over Maryland.
