Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Year Power Rankings

The Big Ten is viewed by many to be defense-first conference, but these next six players are out to change that perception for good. Here's our Week 10 edition of the Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Year Power Rankings.

6. WR Leonte Carroo -- Rutgers Scarlet Knights

We're basing this on three games of production, but MY WHAT HE DID during those three games. Carroo has three 3-TD games to his credit, making nine TDs in total on just 24 catches. We know this might be a reach considering Rutgers' place in the standings and the small sample size we're referring to, but he's the epitome of a big play threat and someone you should keep an eye on for the rest of the year.

5. QB Nate Sudfeld -- Indiana Hoosiers

Sudfeld has gone on record to say that his impressive stat line means nothing if the team's not winning, but we'd be remiss not to include him on this countdown. Sudfeld is completing 62.8% of his passes at a 9.07 yards per attempt clip. That adds up to 2,049 yards through eight games, to go along with his 14 touchdowns against just four interceptions.

4. WR Aaron Burbridge -- Michigan State Spartans

Burbridge's 830 yards receiving accounts for just over 40% of the undefeated Spartans' total passing offense. He only has five touchdowns to his credit, but he's been the most reliable possession receiver in the conference. That means a lot for an MSU team that's scrapped and clawed their way to 8-0.

3. QB Christian Hackenberg -- Penn State Nittany Lions

Hackenberg has thrown for 1,415 yards with 12 touchdowns and no interceptions in his last six games. He’s added two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown in that span, serving as Penn State's offensive conduit on their road to an impressive 7-2 start. Those who cried "overrated" to start the year are eating their words right about now.

2. RB Ezekiel Elliott -- Ohio State Spartans

Elliott has rushed for 100 yards or more in every game this season. In fact, he's riding a 13-game triple digit streak and has a legit chance at shattering the 2000-yard mark with regular season, and potential conference title/CFP games factored in. While Ohio State deals with upheaval elsewhere on the offense, Zeke serves as the team's anchor in the storm.

1. QB Connor Cook -- Michigan State Spartans

If Connor Cook wasn't playing in East Lansing this year, MSU would have two to three losses easy. That's how much Cook's accuracy and steady hand has meant to the Spartans this year. Cook has over 2,000 yards passing and 14 touchdowns against just two interceptions. He's also the one QB in the nation we'd want to have the ball down four with two minutes remaining.
