This Big Ten isn’t exactly a conference loaded with dynamic offenses in 2023. That will probably change next season, but for now, running and defense is still how to win, especially in the Big Ten West.
Young quarterbacks Kyle McCord and Drew Allar were big question marks for two of the top teams in the conference and we got to see that play out in Columbus in Week 8. Ohio State took a 20-12 win over Penn State, but the conference is still up for grabs and the quarterbacks will go a long way to deciding it.
With College Football Playoff spots up for grabs, let’s rank the quarterbacks in the Big Ten conference.
Big Ten QB rankings No. 14: Deacon Hill, Iowa
- 427 passing yards
- 2 TDs 3 interceptions
- 37.8% completion
- 4.4 yards per attempt
Just look at those numbers. It’s staggering how bad Hill has been. He has played the majority of snaps in four games, three of those have been starts, and yet he only has 33 completions in those four games.
On top of being an abysmal passer, Hill also provides absolutely nothing in the quarterback run game. His long run of the season is seven yards and counting sack yardage he has a season total of -75 rushing yards.
