Michigan Football defensive back Jabrill Peppers has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week, according to a release from the conference on Monday.

This is the second time Peppers has won FOTW this season.

Peppers made an impact in all three phases of the game on Saturday night as he continues to show his value to the Wolverines whenever he is out there in any capacity.

He had a 43-yard kickoff return and 40-yard yard punt return, as well as scoring his first career touchdown on offense from four-yards out in the Wildcat formation. Peppers continues to get looks on offense and finished the game with four rushes for 16 yards.

He also added three tackles and two pass breakups in the game, as well.

Peppers has backed up all of the hype surrounding him after missing most of last season due to injury. The scary part for his opponents is that he keeps getting better, so we will see what direction he goes from here.
