The Chicago Tribune Silver Football is awarded by the Chicago Tribune to the college football player determined to be the best player from the Big Ten Conference.[1] The award has been presented annually since 1924, when Red Grange of Illinois was the award's first recipient.[1]

The winner of the Silver Football is determined by a vote of Big Ten head football coaches.[1] Each coach submits a two-player ballot with a first and second choice, and coaches cannot vote for players on their own team.[1] The first-place vote receives two points and the second-place vote receives one point.[1]

Coaches and media of the Big Ten also make annual selections for additional individual honors.
