Big Ten Football Awards
The Big Ten will continue to honor its past while recognizing its current standouts at the conclusion of the 2012
campaign. The Big Ten’s enhanced football awards program presents 18 individual trophies in addition to the
Big Ten Championship trophy, bearing the names of one
or two former standouts. The distinguished names on
these football awards honor just a small sampling of the
countless student-athletes and coaches who have contributed to the conference’s rich and storied history.
Seventeen of the honors will be awarded immediately
following the regular season, including awards for the
best quarterback, running back, receiver, tight end,
offensive lineman, defensive lineman, linebacker, defensive back, kicker and punter. Each of these individual
position awards features the names of two former student-athletes.
The Big Ten will also continue to honor the conference’s
top coaches, offensive and defensive players and linemen and freshmen with end-of-year trophies. Big Ten
coaches have the opportunity to claim two awards.
Media voters will continue to select the Dave McClain
Coach of the Year, which has been awarded since 1972,
while coaches vote for the Hayes-Schembechler Coach
of the Year award. The top offensive player will receive
the Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year award,
the best defensive player will be awarded the NagurskiWoodson Defensive Player of the Year award and the
best first-year standout will receive the Thompson% 6;";<: ` 6 ’ :  : 

The winner of the Big Ten Football Championship Game
will receive the Amos Alonzo Stagg Championship
Trophy, while the most outstanding player in the game
will be awarded the Grange-Griffin Championship Game
MVP award. The conference also created two postcolleZ=   : <:&=66=Y‰ : =‚ : 6

The full list of awards, along with a breakdown of the
former standouts appearing in each award’s name,
