Kerrigan Named Top Defender Of BTN Era

The Big Ten Network has only been around for five years now, but in that short time, a couple of members of the Washington Redskins have left a lasting impact as college players in that conference.

Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan — a defensive end at Purdue from 2007 to 2010 — and quarterback Kirk Cousins — who starred at Michigan State from 2008 to 20011 — were recently named to various lists celebrating the best players of the Big Ten Network era.

Kerrigan comes away with the more prestigious honor, as he was named the No. 1 defensive player of the Big Ten Network era.

Kerrigan, who was also mysteriously ranked behind Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh as the second-best Big Ten defensive lineman of the 2000s, was the 2010 Big Ten Defensive Player of the year and finished his Purdue career tied for the all-time FBS lead for forced fumbles.

Here’s what the Big Ten Network’s Brent Yarina had to say about Kerrigan’s dominance during the network’s era:

BTN era stats: 210 tackles, 57 TFLs, 33.5 sacks, 14 forced fumbles
Accolades: Set Big Ten record, matched FBS record with 14 career forced fumbles; 2010 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year; 2010 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year; 2010 unanimous first-team All-America.

Cousins, meanwhile, was ranked the No. 5 quarterback of the Big Ten Network era.

Here’s what Yarnia wrote about Cousins:

BTN era stats: 723-1,128 (64 percent), 9,131 yards, 66 TDs, 30 INTs
Accolades: Cousins will forever live in Michigan State lore, whether it’s for his 3-0 record versus rival Michigan, his leading the Spartans to back-to-back double-digit win seasons – years that included a share of the 2010 Big Ten crown and the 2011 Legends Division title – or his memorable last-second Hail Mary touchdown pass to Keith Nichol in prime time. A three-year captain, Cousins finished his career as the program’s all-time record holder in passing touchdowns (66), passing yards (9,131), completions (723) and passing efficiency (146.1 rating), among other things.

Here’s a Big Ten Network feature on Kerrigan and his “Superman” persona while he was at Purdue:
