Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year: Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State
Winning the Offensive Player of the Year and not winning your positional award? Come on now, who do you think we are..BTN? You know this was going to happen, even if Jordan Howard of Indiana gave Elliott one hell of a run towards this award.
Elliott not only led the conference in rushing, but was one of just four running backs over the 1,000-yard mark this season. We’ll see later this week if he gets an invite to New York City for the Heisman Trophy presentation, but it’s hard to argue he shouldn’t be up there.
