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.
