Mauti and Robinson receive special notice from the league to lead a parade of Nittany Lions honored Monday. More hardware will be announced Tuesday.

Coming off a season in which many wondered if it would even be competitive in the Big Ten, Penn State posted a 6-2 conference record and finished second in the Leaders Division.

The Nittany Lions — all of whom were eligible to transfer out of the program when NCAA sanctions hit in July — grabbed many of the Big Ten awards announced Monday.

Linebacker Michael Mauti was named the Butkus-Fitzgerald Linebacker of the Year. And receiver Allen Robinson was named the Richter-Hower Receiver of the Year.
