COLUMBUS — Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been named the Big Ten offensive player of the week for the second time in three weeks, the conference announced on Monday morning.

Pryor, who threw for a career-high 334 yards and three touchdowns on 24-of-30 passing during Saturday's 38-10 win over Indiana, shared the honor this week with Wisconsin junior tailback John Clay.

The junior signal caller said on Saturday that stats and individual accomplishment are fine, but in the end it's all about getting the win.

"At the end of the year, it doesn't matter what kind of stats I had or anybody else had," Pryor said. "It's all about getting the 'W,' and still competing for a Big Ten championship and getting to our goal of a national championship."

Pryor and the No. 1 Buckeyes will travel to Madison this Saturday night to take on Clay and the 16th ranked Wisconsin Badgers.
