2017 CFN Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year

RB Jonathan Taylor, Fr. Wisconsin

When you’re doing something special as a Wisconsin running back, you’re coming up with something truly elite. Taylor took over the job early on and never let it go with 1,847 yards and 13 touchdowns with nine 100-yard games, including a 249-yarder against Nebraska.

2017 CFN Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year

LB Josey Jewell, Sr. Iowa

The Big Ten’s leading tackler did a little of everything else, too. Not only did hie make 125 tackles, but he came up with 4.5 sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss, and was brilliant in pass coverage with two picks and 11 broken up passes.

2017 CFN Big Ten Coach of the Year

Paul Chryst, Wisconsin

Jeff Brohm did a wonderful job at Purdue to turn the program around, and Mark Dantonio was wonderful in reversing the momentum at Michigan State with a big year, but it was Chryst and his even keel that set the tone week after week as the Badgers went about their business.

The steadiness almost won the race, having a late drive in the Big Ten Championship with a shot at the College Football Playoff. They came up short, but it was another fantastic year.
