Denard Robinson, Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year
Ryan Kerrigan, Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year

In a year when Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson set numerous offensive records and became the first qb to rush and pass for 1,500 yards in a season- you can add another first. Robinson was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year by the conference coaches, yet he only made honorable mention as a qb.

Dan Persa of Northwestern was selected as the coaches first team All Big Ten quarterback. Persa missed the last two games of the regular season with an Achilles injury. He passed for 258 yards a game and set a conference completion mark hitting on 73% of his passes.

Purdue’s probable All-American defensive lineman, Ryan Kerrigan, was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.
