The Big Ten held its annual football awards show Monday evening. The most significant honor for a Penn State player (so far) hardly came as a surprise.
Junior Allen Robinson was named the Big Ten Receiver of the Year for the second straight season. He was the inaugural recipient of the honor in 2011.
Robinson leads the conference in receptions (97), receiving yards (1,432) and receiving yards per game (119.3). He ranks third in the nation in receiving yardage. He now owns the school records for catches and receiving yardage in a season.
On the show, Robinson said he will make a decision on whether to return for his senior season after Christmas break.
Other awards will be announced Tuesday. PSU quarterback Christian Hackenberg, a five-time Freshman of the Week during the season, appears to be a lock for Freshman of the Year honors.
