MVP

QB Gunner Kiel, Cincinnati: Kiel's college career took time to develop. He was at Notre Dame in 2012, sat out due to transfer rules in 2013 and finally took the field last season. He led the league in passing efficiency and, now that he has grasped the Cincinnati offense, could guide the Bearcats to a conference title.
