You knew this was coming, especially after the year that Michigan football has had.
On Tuesday, the Big Ten started rolling out its annual individual award winners, starting with defense and special teams. Considering that Aidan Hutchinson has vaulted to the forefront of all of college football, currently sitting third in Heisman Trophy betting odds, it went without saying that he would garner a lot of the awards.
And it was so. The Big Ten announced that Hutchinson has won Nagurski-Woodson Defensive Player of the Year as well as Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year. Michigan kicker Jake Moody also won Bakken-Andersen Kicker of the Year.
