Trophy Talk: Naming Big Ten Contenders

Trophy Talk: Naming Big Ten Contenders

The Big Ten underwent numerous changes since the 2010 season came to a close. There was the addition of Nebraska, of course, which paved the way for the conference to create two divisions, Legends and Leaders, and a championship game. A little more under the radar, however, was the addition of 18 new trophies, two for the championship game, two for postgraduate awards and 14 for annual awards. Every trophy is named after two Big Ten historical figures (Nagurski-Woodson Award, Defensive Player of the Year). Watch now as the BTN crew offers its 2011 Legends Division trophy contenders.

And what about the Leaders Division? Glad you asked. We have the video for a couple of those contenders, too.
