Big Ten Awards Race Tracker: Week 5

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

The first week of mostly Big Ten play provided some surprising results, and that means a lot of things are shaken up this week in our weekly look at who is on track to win the Big Ten awards at the end of the season. Maryland going to Indiana and stomping on the Hoosiers made a statement to the rest of the conference, but did it affect any of the awards?

How about Northwestern putting the Nittany Lions to sleep, or what about Ohio State’s dominating performance over Cincinnati too?

As Big Ten play gets under way, we’ve now got plenty to look at and this week we’ve added a look at two new positions and will add more as the weeks go on.

Let’s stop the wondering and start handing out awards as if we were able to call it after five weeks of action.
