Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins and Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore each took two of the Big Ten’s annual awards on Wednesday following fantastic regular season performances by each.
Haskins set the Big Ten single-season record for touchdown passes so it was no surprise at all to see the Big Ten recognize him with a pair of awards on Wednesday. Haskins was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and the Big Ten Quarterback of the Year as the Big Ten announced its annual conference awards. The QB award is named in part to honor former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees, whom Haskins passed for the single-season touchdown passing record in a rout of Michigan last weekend. Haskins is the third Buckeyes player to win the award under Urban Meyer as head coach, joining two-time winner Braxton Miller (2012 and 2013) and Ezekiel Elliott (2015).
Moore was named the Big Ten’s receiver of the year and freshman of the year.
