The duo helped Harvard to its largest win of 2018 (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Two days removed from a dominant performance against Columbia, Harvard football seniors Tom Stewart and Wesley Ogsbury have been named the Ivy League Co-Offensive Player and Defensive Player of the Week, respectively, as announced by the conference on Monday.
In Harvard's 52-18 win over Columbia, Stewart tied the school record with five touchdown passes (92, 75, 74, 16 and 10 yards). The first of those touchdown passes was a 92-yarder on the first play of the game to Jack Cook, the longest touchdown pass in school history. Stewart had 251 yards and 3 TDs in the first quarter alone and finished 15-of-26 for 393 yards, the eighth most for a single game in school history.
On the defensive side of the ball, Ogsbury made a career-high two interceptions, returning the passes for a combined 42 yards. He also broke up a pass, make 1.0 tackles for a loss of four yards and recorded two tackles overall. The cornerback leads the Crimson and ranks third in the Ivy League with five interceptions this season.
The weekly honor is the first for both players in their careers. The Crimson travels to Philadelphia to take on Penn next weekend, Nov. 10, in its final road action of the year. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+ and NBCSN Philadelphia.
