Football. Wadley Named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa running back Akrum Wadley has been named Big Ten Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Iowa’s 40-10 win at No. 20 Northwestern.

The Big Ten honor is the second weekly honor for Wadley (5-foot-11, 185-pounds), a sophomore from Newark, New Jersey (Weequahic HS). Wadley was recognized as Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Nov. 3, 2014, after rushing 15 times for 106 yards and a touchdown in a 48-7 win over Northwestern in Kinnick Stadium.

Wadley is the fifth Hawkeye to earn weekly honors from the Big Ten in 2015.
