Another day, another honor for a former Big Ten football player.

One day after Ameer Abdullah (Nebraska) took home Senior Bowl Most Outstanding Player, J.J. Watt (Wisconsin) claimed Defensive MVP of the NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday night.

Watt, the first player in NFL history to record multiple 20-sack seasons, an interception and fumble recovery in a losing effort.

View the Pro Bowl box score.

Here's how other ex-Big Ten stars did: Drew Brees (Purdue) 13-21, 163 yards, 2 TD; Tamba Hali (Penn State) 3 tackles; Vontae Davis (Illinois) 2 tackles; Cameron Wake (Penn State) 2 tackles, 1 TFL; Donte Whitner (Ohio State) 2 tackles

Watch Watt's interception in the tweet below.

It didn't count, but Watt also made an incredible Odell Beckham-esque catch while throwing the football around with a fan. Yes, you read that correctly.

Watch the video in the tweet below.

Watt's younger brothers, Derek and T.J., both current Wisconsin players, were very proud of big brother.

There's also this feature from Watt being mic'd up.
