The leader of the Scarlet and Gray Brigade earns back-to-back honors

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

For the second year in a row, Ohio State Quarterback Braxton Miller was honored as the Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Year. Despite being injured for three of the first four games of the season, Miller made a strong last-minute push and led the Buckeyes high-powered offense to the B1G Championship.

Through nine full games, Miller completed 65.7 percent of his passes (second in the B1G behind Kenny Guiton) for 1,759 yards, 21 touchdowns and just five interceptions. The junior quarterback also added 891 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground.

Even though it might be too little, too late for the pre-season Heisman favorite, Miller made a strong case to defend his Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year award, as well as his place on the all-Big Ten first team, earning both honors.
