Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson has been named Big Ten Offensive Player

Russell Wilson

of the Week following his debut performance with the Badgers on Thursday night.  Wilson completed 10 of 13 passes for 255 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  He also ran for 62 yards and another score.

Wilson helped the Badgers to a season opening 51-17 win over UNLV at Camp Randall Stadium. 

Wilson became just the second UW quarterback to throw for 250 yards and rush for at least 50 more in the same game, and the first Badgers quarterback to do so since 1979.

The Badgers return to action Saturday by hosting Oregon State in a game that kicks off at 11 a.m. at Camp Randall Stadium.
