Despite the bowl sanctions for Penn State and Ohio State, each team boasted a number of superb individual seasons from its players throughout the 2012 regular season. Both schools earned five representatives on our Big Ten All-Conference Team. Nebraska, which represented the Legends Division in the Big Ten Championship Game this past Saturday, had three honorees.
Big Ten champion Wisconsin was represented by three seniors on the all-conference team, and Northwestern, which finished with the second-best overall record in the league, made its mark on special teams. Check back later in the week when we reveal our Big Ten Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, along with our Coach of the Year.
