All Big Ten Team/Awards
 
Big Ten Announces 2005 Football All-Conference Teams And Individual Honors

Northwestern's Basanez and Penn State's Robinson Share Offensive Honors while Ohio State's Hawk Sweeps Defensive Player of the Year Accolades

The Big Ten announced the 2005 All-Conference football teams and individual award winners today as selected by the coaches and a media panel. For just the sixth time since the award's inception in 1982, two different standouts were honored as the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in Northwestern's Brett Basanez (media) and Penn State's Michael Robinson (coaches). The Nittany Lions, who earned a share of the Big Ten title, picked up two more individual laurels when Joe Paterno was tabbed as the media's choice for the Dave McClain Coach of the Year while Tamba Hali was a unanimous selection by the coaches as the Defensive Lineman of the Year. Fellow league co-champion Ohio State also collected some hardware with A.J. Hawk sweeping Defensive Player of the Year accolades from both groups. The Wildcats picked up another individual award with Tyrell Sutton being tabbed the Freshman of the Year by both coaches and media, while the coaches honored Minnesota's Greg Eslinger as the Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Basanez and Robinson are the first players to share Offensive Player of the Year honors since 1998, when Ohio State's Joe Germaine and Purdue's Drew Brees split the end-of-year award. The Big Ten also featured at least two honorees in 1997, 1990, 1987 and 1985.

Robinson boosted the Nittany Lions to their second Big Ten championship since joining the conference in 1993 to become the third PSU player to earn Offensive Player of the Year laurels, along with Curtis Enis (1997) and Kerry Collins (1994). The senior quarterback led the Big Ten's top-scoring offense to 35.2 points per outing in league games only, an increase of more than three touchdowns over an offensive attack that ended the 2004 campaign ranked last in the conference (12.9 points per game). Robinson has already established a school record with 2,882 yards of total offense this season, shattering the previous mark set by Collins in 1994, and has been responsible for 27 touchdowns, just two shy of a new program-best.
