The Top-5 matchup between Ohio State and Penn State looms large over Week 5 but before we look ahead, we must look back one last time at the top performances from Week 4 in the Big Ten. Alex Hornibrook takes home the conference's QB of the Week honors for the third time this season as he's been off to a tremendous start despite the slip up against BYU.

The Big Ten Team of the Week is brought to you by Eckrich, the Official Smoked Sausage of the College Football Playoff.
