Haskins became the third Buckeye in the eight-year history of the Big Ten title game to win the Grange-Griffin MVP award, following Cardale Jones (2014) and J.K. Dobbins (2017).
Haskins added another chapter to a season that has seen him set numerous records. On Saturday, he became the Big Ten’s single-season leader in total offensive yards (4,702 yards). He broke the record of 4,272 yards set by Michigan’s Denard Robinson in 2010. He also broke J.T. Barrett’s record for touchdowns in a season. Haskins has 51 (47 passing and four rushing). Barrett had 47 touchdowns last season.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer pushed for Haskins to get an invitation to the Heisman Trophy ceremony.
“He's without question a Heisman candidate,” Meyer said. “I've seen the statistics of the other two great players, and there's no doubt. Dwayne Haskins is a Heisman candidate, and he should be in New York City.”
