The Big Ten announced this week the offensive players of the year and the coach of the year within the conference. The coach of the year award went to Kirk Ferentz of the Iowa Hawkeyes after he led his team to a 12-0 record following a disappointing 7-5 2014 campaign. The offensive player of the year award was given to junior running back Ezekiel Elliott of Ohio State after his strong year. Elliott rushed for over a thousand yards and 19 touchdowns this season. Michigan State and Ohio State dominated the offensive side of the ball in terms of rewards.
