BLOOMINGTON, Ind. –Redshirt junior Peyton Ramsey was named the week-nine Manning Award Quarterback of the Week, it was announced Thursday afternoon. He earns the win in the closest vote this season, beating out Kansas State's Skylar Thompson and six other Manning Award Stars of the Week in the Allstate Sugar Bowl's Facebook contest. This is his first time winning the award. Ramsey led the bowl-eligible Hoosiers (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) to a 38-31 victory at Nebraska on Saturday. He went 27-for-40 (67.5 percent) for a career-high 351 yards, his fourth 300-yard game, with two passing touchdowns and one rushing TD. It marked his 12th career multi-passing touchdown game, and the seventh game of his career with a passing and a rushing score. The Cincinnati native added 42 rushing yards for a career-high 393 total yards. IU is off to its best eight-game start since opening with a 7-1 mark in 1993. Indiana has won three-straight conference games for the first time since a four-game winning streak in 1993. Up next, the Hoosiers host Northwestern at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2. It is the first November night game in Memorial Stadium history. FS1 will broadcast the game. Tickets for the Hoosiers' two remaining home games are available by clicking here, by phone at 1-866-IUSPORTS or in person at the Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall Ticket Office.
