Michigan State freshman wide receiver Ricky White (pictured above) was named as the Big Ten's Co-Freshman of the Week on Monday morning.  Northwestern's Brandon Joseph shared the honor with White this week.

White has his coming out party against the Michigan Wolverines last Saturday at Ann Arbor, making 8 catches for 196 yards and a touchdown in the Spartans 27-24 victory over their arch-rivals.

The Georgia product made only one catch against Rutgers in Week 1.  But exploded against Michigan with those eight receptions.

The 1-1 Spartans head to Iowa next Saturday at noon.  You can hear the game on Lansing's Big Talker 1240 AM and Classic Rock 94.9 WMMQ, starting with the Jamie White Law MSU Tailgate Show from the Spartan Hall of Fame Cafe at 8:30 am.
