Amir Pinnix Named Big Ten Player of the Week
The New Jersey native added his first rushing touchdown of the year in the final stanza to build the lead to 34-10. Pinnix more than doubled his previous career-best performance of 88 yards against Toledo in 2004 to become the 12th Gopher to break the 200-yard barrier.
Minnesota becomes the first school in Big Ten history to have three different running backs pick up weekly league accolades in the same season after Pinnix joined Maroney (Sept. 26) and Russell (Nov. 7) as Offensive Player of the Week honorees. Four other teams have watched two rushers pick up weekly laurels in the same year -- the Gophers in 2000 (Thomas Tapeh, Tellis Redmon), Iowa in 1997 (Tavian Banks, Rob Thein), Wisconsin in 1993 (Brent Moss, Terrell Fletcher) and Michigan State in 1990 (Tico Duckett, Hyland Hickson). This is the first weekly honor for Pinnix.
