This was the big Purdue Football news we’ve been waiting for all day.

NCAA Football: Purdue at Indiana Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Not much surprise here, but Rondale Moore was named Big Ten’s Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year. Additionally, Moore was named the Big Ten’s Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year.

Moore is the first Purdue freshman to win the Freshman of the Year award since Stuart Schweigert in 2000. Moore is the first Purdue player to ever receive the Receiver of the Year award, which has been awarded since 2011. Moore’s two Player of the Year awards are the first conference PoY awards earned by a Purdue player since 2013, when Cody Webster was named the Eddleman–Fields Punter of the Year.
