This is Oatsvall’s first Offensive Player of the Week honor, while the selection marks his third Newcomer of the Week honor in the past four weeks.
Oatsvall helped his team storm back from a 17-point deficit on Saturday to defeat Eastern Kentucky 31-24 in dramatic fashion. The Brentwood native racked up 203 yards though the air – the second best output of his career – and 64 yards on the ground.
