Michigan's David Molk was named winner of the Rimington Trophy on Thursday as the nation's best center.
Molk is the second Wolverine to win the award, joining David Baas, who shared the honor in 2004.
The trophy is named after former Nebraska center Dave Rimington, a two-time All-American.
"I am truly humbled to be the Rimington Trophy recipient," Molk said. "It's such an honor considering all of the great centers around the country, including the other finalists. It's an individual award, but it's a credit to our offensive line, our team and our coaching staff. I'm proud to represent the University of Michigan."
Molk, a fifth-year senior, will make his 42nd consecutive start for the Wolverines on Jan. 3 against Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.
He's part of an offensive line that produced two 1,000-yard rushers this season in quarterback Denard Robinson and running back Fitzgerald Toussaint. The Wolverines finished with a 10-2 overall recordin Brady Hoke's first year as head coach of the program.
