Wyatt Davis is the Big Ten's best offensive lineman.

In his second season as a starter at Ohio State, Davis has been named the Big Ten's Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year, given annually to the conference's top lineman.

This marks the fourth time in the past six years that an Ohio State offensive lineman has won the award after Taylor Decker, Pat Elflein and Billy Price earned the honor in consecutive years between 2015 and 2017.

After initially opting out to begin his preparation for the 2021 NFL draft, Davis elected to return to the Buckeyes after the Big Ten reinstated its fall season. As a team captain and veteran presence at right guard, he has helped lead an offense that currently leads all Power Five teams with 251 rushing yards per game and ranks No. 4 in the country with 46.6 points per game.

A projected first-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft as one of college football's best offensive linemen, Davis was already selected to BTN's All-Decade team of the 2010s and is now a first-team All-Big Ten honoree for the second year in a row. He was also a first-team All-American in 2019.
