It was an obvious choice.
Dwayne Haskins was officially name MVP for the Big Ten Championship game following his ridiculous performance in Indy. The showing may very well have earned him a spot in New York for the Heisman ceremony as well.
The redshirt sophomore connected on 34 of 41 passes for 499 yards and five touchdowns. Haskins also used his legs to escape a number of pressures while dancing around and finding receivers down the field.

Tua Tagovailoa has been the presumptive favorite for the Heisman Trophy with Oklahoma's Kyler Murray and Haskins also very much in the picture. Tagovailoa had a lackluster performance in Alabama's come-from-behind win over Georgia but Murray was impressive against Texas. The three signal-callers all seem destined for New York at this point.
The Buckeyes will learn their fate Sunday afternoon when the selection committee announces its final rankings.
