ATHENS, Ohio - Junior quarterback Tyler Tettleton and senior kicker Matt Weller each received Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week honors on Monday after both played a key role in the Bobcats' come-from-behind win over Marshall this past Saturday.
Tettleton (Norman, Okla.) earned his fourth career MAC East Offensive Player of the Week honor after he went 20-of-35 through the air for 200 yards, completing passes to nine different receivers. He also passed for three touchdowns and did not throw an interception as he improved to 13-4 as a starter.
The Oklahoma native has now thrown three or more touchdowns in five games throughout his career. Dating back to last season, Tettleton has not thrown an interception in his last 129 attempts.
Weller picked up his seventh career MAC East Special Teams Player of the Week award after he connected on a pair of field goals, including the game winner from 38-yards out as Ohio improved to 3-0 on the year.
He was also a perfect 3-for-3 on extra points. On kickoffs, Weller averaged 59.8 yards per kick and posted a pair of touchbacks.
Ohio returns to action on Saturday as it welcomes Norfolk State to Peden Stadium. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. and the game can been seen on ESPN3.com.
