Saquon Barkley makes history at the Big Ten football awards

Saquon Barkley makes history at the Big Ten football awards

He was not, however the best or most valuable running back in the Big Ten.

He dropped off the national radar after Penn State lost back-to-back games, but Big Ten folks still greatly appreciate his work.

Barkley ranks first in the conference and second nationally with an average of 179.5 all-purpose yards per game.

Saquon Barkley won Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year because of preseason hype and a dozen or so "Did you see that!?" plays.

Two of the three finalists for the Big Ten's top football award can stare each other down in the conference championship game Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Quarterback Trace McSorley made the second team, according to both coaches and media.

Barkley, a junior, became just the third player in Big Ten history to win the Offensive Player of the Year award in multiple seasons, joining Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller (2012-13) and Purdue quarterback Drew Brees (1998, 2000).

Barkley became the first player to win those three awards and just the second to claim three individual trophies in one season.

Barkley had more rushing touchdowns, total touchdowns, receptions and receiving yards. West champion Wisconsin has running back Jonathan Taylor, tight end Troy Fumagalli, tackle Michael Deiter and guard Beau Benzschawel on the team.

Penn State OC Joe Moorhead was officially announced as Mississippi State's next head coach.

But, there evidently is some bad news for the Nittany Lions, too: He's taking at least one assistant coach with him.

Bates is the first Penn State offensive lineman to receive all-conference recognition since John Urschel in 2013.

The third finalist is the one everybody was talking about in September and October - running back Saquon Barkley.

First-team specialists were IN kicker Griffin Oakes and Rutgers punter Ryan Anderson.

If Huff winds up leaving, it will be the start of a busy offseason filling out the coaching staff for Franklin.
