Big Ten Football Awards Race Tracker: Week 11

Each week we’ll assess the race for each of the biggest Big Ten football awards — from Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, to Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year, we’ve got it all covered.

As the calendar turns to the final month of the college football regular season, it’s time to also get serious about the races for each award. We all know that the Big Ten loves handing out awards, so as the season comes to the final month we’re getting a very clear picture of who is leading what awards.

One award seems to be hanging in the balance with the health of Ameer Abdullah. His sprained knee comes at a good time, with Nebraska off this week ahead of its clash with the Wisconsin Badgers next week. Does his counterpart, Melvin Gordon benefit from the injury?

Let’s find out who we see taking home each award as the season gets real serious.
