PRINCETON, N.J. – Senior quarterback Scott Hosch has been named the Ivy League Co-Offensive Player of the Week after leading the No. 25 Harvard football team to a 41-10 season-opening victory at Rhode Island Sept. 19, it was announced Monday afternoon.

Hosch, who hails from Sugar Hill, Georgia, set career-highs with 336 passing yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Rams. Hosch had TD passes of 45 (Ryan Halvorson), 21 (Seitu Smith II) and 19 yards (Ben Braunecker) and was 18-of-27 on the day. He had a long pass of 60 yards to tight end Anthony Firkser and improved to 7-0 as a starter for his career.

Hosch shares the honor with Yale's Morgan Roberts, who was 29-of-41 for 293 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the victory over Colgate. 

This marks the first conference honor for the senior. Hosch was also named the College Sports Madness Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts.

Harvard has now won 15-straight games, the longest active streak in the FCS and the second in Division I behind Ohio State (16).
