One of the best kept secrets in college football in 2015 is the play of Jordan Canzeri.

The Iowa Hawkeyes running back has been racking up yards and touchdowns all season long. On Saturday against Illinois, he ran for an impressive 256 yards on a school-record 43 carries to lead Iowa to a 29-20 homecoming win.

That great game earned him Offensive Big Ten Player of the Week honors. He also scored a receiving and rushing touchdown in the game. Canzeri now leads the nation with ten rushing touchdowns which would surprise many fans outside of the Big Ten.

The Hawkeyes will need another big performance as the head to Evanston to take on the Northwestern Wildcats stingy defense on Saturday.
