This is the ninth time a MSU player has received the honor

The Big Ten champion guard received the honors after posting a regular season with 19 points, 7.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game. He also logged at least 35 minutes in four of MSU’s last seven games of the season to clinch the Big Ten title despite missing Nick Ward and Josh Langford down the stretch.

Winston became the first Spartan in program history to win Big Ten Player of the Week five times in the same season. His most recent honors came after MSU beat Michigan the first time (because that happened twice, people forget that).

This is the ninth time the Big Ten Player of the Year honors go to a MSU student-athlete, who already leads the conference in most players to win that honor. He joins Scott Skiles (1986), Shawn Respert (1995), Mateen Cleaves (1998 and 1999), Mo Peterson (2000), Kalin Lucas (2009), Draymond Green (2012) and Denzel Valentine (2016).

The Chicago Bears have made a quarterback change and have decided to go with rookie Mitchell Trubisky starting with next Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, sources tell ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dan Graziano.The quarterback change comes after Mike Glennon turned over the ball four times (three in the first half) in Chicago’s ugly 35-14 loss last Thursday night at Green Bay.

The Bears traded up to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft to select Trubisky, who impressed in the preseason passing for 364 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions for a 106.2 passer rating.

Trubisky will become the third quarterback selected in the 2017 draft to start this season, joining the Houston Texans’ Deshaun Watson and the Cleveland Browns’ DeShone Kizer.

Watson (selected 12th overall) has thrived since becoming the Texans’ starting quarterback, nearly orchestrating an upset of the New England Patriots in Week 3 and tying an NFL rookie record with five touchdowns (four passing, one rushing) in Houston’s 57-14 Week 4 rout of the Tennessee Titans. Kizer (picked in the second round, No. 52 overall) has struggled, throwing an NFL-worst eight interceptions as the Browns have started 0-4.

Trubisky won Chicago’s primary backup job in Week 1, beating out veteran Mark Sanchez, who has been inactive the first four weeks. But there have been questions about Trubisky’s readiness to start at quarterback in the NFL after starting just 13 games at the University of North Carolina.


The Bears signed Glennon in free agency, paying a hefty price — he will earn $16 million guaranteed in 2017.
Glennon also struggled in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, turning the ball over three times (all in the first half) in Chicago’s 29-7 loss.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Glennon is the only Bears player in the past 40 seasons to have three turnovers in a half twice within the first four games of a season.

The Bears have lost three of four games with Glennon at quarterback.
