Hickman grabbed 10 total takedowns of his own, second most on the team against Northwestern. Six of his tackles were solo efforts.

Mirco punted seven times against Northwestern, averaging 50.3 yards per boot with a long of 77 yards. Two of his punts were down inside the opposing 20-yard line.

No players on offense received player of the week honors as the Wildcats outgained the Buckeyes 285-283.
