Big Ten All-America roundup

By Brian Bennett

Now that all the major All-America teams have been named, let's take a look at which Big Ten players received the honor.

Wisconsin's Montee Ball was a consensus All-American. That distinction belongs to players who earned the most first-team All-America nods at their position from the top five All-America lists: the American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News and Walter Camp Football Foundation. This is the second year in a row Ball has been a consensus All-American, joining Georgia's Jarvis Jones and Alabama's Barrett Jones as repeat honorees.
