Tight end Cade Stover, linebacker Tommy Eichenberg and safety Tanner McCalister were named the offensive and co-defensive players of the game following Ohio State’s 52-21 win over Wisconsin on Saturday evening.

The Buckeyes did not name a special teams player of the game this week, meanwhile, bringing to mind last Sunday when they did not name a defensive player of the game for the 77-21 victory over Toledo.

Stover, a redshirt junior from Lexington, Ohio, caught four passes for 51 yards and two touchdowns against the Badgers, which helped the Buckeyes open a 21-0 first-quarter lead. He nearly caught another toward the end of the second quarter, but the pass was just out of his reach.

Eichenberg, a redshirt junior from Cleveland, led the team with 14 tackles, including seven solo tackles and two tackles for loss, while McCalister recorded four tackles, one pass break up and one interception, his first turnover since transferring from Oklahoma State this offseason.

Ohio State will be back in action next Saturday against Rutgers. Kickoff between the Buckeyes and Scarlet Knights is set for 3:30 p.m. on BTN.
